Marni's bee-embellished suede sandals
Nothing tugs on our heartstrings quite so much as a bit of playful and whimsical design, and there still seems to be a buzz about bees in the footwear and accessories side of fashion. Marni has created a new evening sandal that's as adorable as it is chic, with a bee theme that extends far beyond the little jewelled critter sitting on top of the toe: the rippled gold platform resembles honeycomb, while the black and gold colour scheme represents the tone of the insect's stripes.
We love the way that these shoes take the current obsession with black and gold heavy-stemmed sophistication and turn it into something that's just a little bit more fun than so many other styles you'll find out there. The only sting in the tail is the cost - these are £630 at Net-a-Porter.
