If you aren’t already familiar with our favourite Aussie handbag, footwear and accessories label By FAR, then where have you been? The fashion forward brand has contributed considerably to the revival of the 90’s mini bag and kitten heels.

From musicians to models, A-listers can’t get enough of By FAR shoes and bags for their chic and feminine style, with the Hadid sisters, Kaia Gerber and Zoe Kravitz among their biggest fans. The label is the brainchild of three Australian friends who sought to invent the ultimate cool girl accessories brand with pieces they can wear on the daily. Designs are highly inspired by late 80’s, 90’s and early noughties trends, with the By FAR Tanya block heel and the By FAR mini pink patent handbag catapulting them into the limelight.
