Mules, sandals, lace-up ankle boots, not to mention baguettes and micro totes with chunky resin spheres… it’s just one surprise after another this season from By Far. The feel is original and a tad retro, and what we’ve come to expect from the Bulgarian design trio of Valentina Bezuhanova, Sabina Gyosheva and Denitsa Bumbarova. Instagram influencers far and wide are already showing off their wares. It’s time for you to give these cool pieces a twirl.
By Far came to be in 2016, the brainchild of Bulgarian twins Valentina Bezuhanova and Sabina Gyosheva along with their best friend Denitsa Bumbarova. The overall feel is nineties-inspired, and the three designers (who named the label after their three sons Filip, Alek and Roman) focus on shoes that blend comfort and elegance, but at a reasonable price. Shoes from By Far are made from upcycled deadstock Italian leather which brings an eco-friendly yet exclusive dimension to the brand.
The trio launched their collection of handbags hot on the heels of the wild success of their shoe range, thanks, in part to Instagram which has played a huge role in By Far’s success to date. Our favourite is the Rachel, named for nineties icon Jennifer Aniston’s character in “Friends”.
