We thought By Far’s FW18 collection was something special (as previously stated). Those p-e-r-f-e-c-t mini bags and baguettes with their ’90s minimalist attributes (most sold out and gone by now – the Influencers did their bit) really proved this Bulgarian shoe and bag company to be a brand worth watching. And we’ve kept a fixed gaze, only looking away for the shortest moment to come back to the first releases of the new SS19 collection. Imagine our excitement. The minimalist Virgo and Libra mules are especially exquisite, both hand crafted from high-quality Italian leathers and with the perfect 5,2 cm (2,6 inch) heels. And more goodies, bags too, are yet to arrive.
Just one thing: We really hope the brand’s founding trio will keep true to the conscious values they first formed the label around; producing in collaboration with local artisans in a family-owned factory, and with a large part deadstock materials in the mix. ‘Cause we’re sure of it: sustainability is the highest form of luxury. Now and forever.
