TOGETHER FOR A MORE CIRCULAR FASHION FUTURE
Today, at BY FAR, we are putting the focus on sustainability and the importance of circularity within the fashion industry. We are teaming up with the leading global community platform for pre-owned fashion Vestiaire Collective in a new circular collaboration to offer a unique collection of Upcycled and Archive pieces: giving new life to pre-loved pieces, creating something new from something old and extending the lifecycle of BY FAR products.
For the upcycling edit BY FAR’s design team created six new ‘Mini Rachel’ bags, made entirely out of pre-loved BY FAR bags bought from the Vestiaire Collective website, as well as our own old stock of damaged products. By reusing and upcycling existing materials into a stunning rose patchwork, this collection reduces waste and limits the use of natural resources, proving that through creativity and a circular approach, fashion’s ‘waste’ can be transformed back into beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces!
For the Archive Sale our founders Sabina Gyosheva, Valentina Ignatova and Denitsa Bumbarova personally selected pieces straight from their closets – shoes and bags from the earliest BY FAR collections that made the brand what it is today. From the very first ‘Rachel’ bag and set of boots BY FAR ever did, to discontinued fan-favourite styles like the ‘Scandi’ mule, that made Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Elsa Hosk and Priyanka Chopra fall in love with the brand. Each of them comes with their own unique story and embodies brand’s ethos of chic, fun and easy-to-wear accessories.
“At BY FAR, all our pieces are designed with quality and longevity in mind. We are always mindful of our impact and we continuously strive towards sustainability. From the careful material selection, to the production processes and timeless designs, we create accessories to be cherished, loved and worn for many seasons ahead,” said Sabina Gyosheva, Valentina Ignatova and Denitsa Bumbarova, Co-Founders of BY FAR.
“Through buying into this collection, you are not only holding a piece of BY FAR history, you are also prolonging the life cycle of a product, fighting the good fight towards a more circular and mindful fashion world! The most important part is, that all proceeds of your purchase will be going to Women for Women International, supporting women survivors of war to help rebuild their lives!”
“We are very excited to be teaming up with BY FAR for our next instalment of Future Collectibles, this is another big step towards resale and firsthand brands working together for a more circular fashion future,” commented Fanny Moizant, Vestiaire Collective Co-Founder and President. “It’s great to see other brands experimenting with ways they can give pre-loved items a new home. Plus, we are raising money for Women for Women International, a charity close to our hearts.”
With this collaboration we want to encourage a more circular product lifecycle, dedicating a Deposit page on our own website, so our BY FAR community can list and re-sell their pre-loved styles on Vestiaire Collective, relating back to circularity and its importance for achieving sustainability.
