How By Far is redefining the world of accessories

When it comes to styling, the impact of great accessories should never be underestimated – and cult label BY FAR’s in-demand designs are sure to take center stage no matter what you’re wearing


As the holiday season approaches – a time typically reserved for endless celebrations, festivities and, by extension, party dressing – why not harness the joy that comes from getting all dressed up. Of course, with a diary that looks markedly different from any other year, our closets will require a serious recalibration. This season, the easiest way to elevate your style is to invest in statement accessories that will enhance every outfit in your closet. Enter, cult accessories label By Far.

With backgrounds in renewable energy and art history respectively, pivoting into fashion might sound like an unexpected move for the brand’s founders, twins Sabina Gyosheva and Valentina Ignatova and their sister-in-law and best friend Denitsa Bumbarova. However, it’s the trio’s breadth of knowledge and experience that has made By Far, established in 2016, a smash hit since day one. The brand’s ever-growing list of fans reads like a who’s who of the world’s most stylish women. Zoë Kravitz, Solange Knowles, Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, Kaia Gerber and Laura Harrier are regularly spotted toting the label’s directional handbags and wearing its covetable footwear.

It would be impossible to discuss the label without touching upon the ingenious way By Far has modernized some of the nineties and noughties most defining accessories. The iconic baguette bag feels like an utterly fresh proposition when cast in playful zebra print and finished with a classic tan shoulder strap. Alternatively, By Far’s cheerful take on the slouchy shoulder bag comes in a variety of sizes and shades, ranging from bright white to lime green. Whatever style you’re drawn to, pair yours with everything from double denim and sweat sets to LBDs and louche tailoring. You’re guaranteed to reach for these endlessly wearable bags time and time again.

Striking the same balance between timely and timeless, By Far’s scene-stealing footwear also makes an enviable addition to any wardrobe. Stiletto or chunky-heeled knee-high boots look chic peeking out from under the hem of a long-line coat – a versatile pairing, especially with many lockdown restrictions meaning socializing is limited to the great outdoors – or a velvet dress. Planning an at-home date night or intimate festive gathering? Opt for the plush mules with a knot detail or streamlined leather alternatives. Not only do they make the perfect accompaniment to wide-leg pants or sheer tights, they’ll also lend any outfit an air of insouciance.

It’s also worth noting that, beyond their singular aesthetic, By Far also boasts impeccable eco credentials. Highlighting homegrown craftsmanship was something all three founders were extremely passionate about, which is why the brand integrates deadstock leather into its designs and produces in family-owned factories in Portugal, Spain and the founders’ native Bulgaria. The deft way By Far has combined cutting-edge design with this conscious approach renders it so much more than merely another contemporary label; it’s a movement and force for change within the industry, representing the future in more ways than one.
