Beyoncé looked to another famed designer for her ongoing “Renaissance World Tour” on Thursday in Vancouver, wearing a red custom ensemble by Telfar. The outfit, which marked the first time the songstress had worn the Black designer brand while on tour, consisted of a shimmering oxblood bodysuit. The look also included sharp lapels, white bordering and the brand’s signature “TC” logo, which stands for the brand’s founder, Telfar Clemens.
Beyoncé’s Telfar outfit, which included matching arm slings, connected chaps and a red baseball cap, was mirrored after Telfar’s Tracksuit line. In a mother-daughter moment, Blue Ivy also hit the stage wearing a custom look by the designer: a glittery jersey with shoulder cutouts and coordinating track pants.
Beyoncé and her 11-year-old daughter have matched throughout the tour on many occasions. In July, the duo wore custom-shining Louis Vuitton looks by the brand’s newly appointed creative director Pharrell Williams.
Beyoncé’s Telfar outfit, by Shiona Turini, is not a surprise given the songstress has expressed her support for the brand on her “Renaissance” album. The lyrics in “Summer Renaissance” state, “So elegant and raunchy/ this haute couture I’m flaunting/ This Telfar bag imported.”
Her lyrics drove a real change in the fashion industry as well, according to The RealReal, which reported that search interest for Telfar on its platform rose 85 percent on the day Beyoncé dropped the “Renaissance” album.
Throughout the tour, Beyoncé has worked with a variety of high-fashion designers, including Balmain, Brandon Blackwood, Valdrin Sahiti, Jacquemus, David Koma and LaQuan Smith. “Renaissance World Tour” secured the 2023 Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic album. Beyoncé’s tour has less than five shows left, with the last date in Kansas City, Mo., on Oct. 1.
