Bumble bees have been popping up in all kinds of places in the fashion world for quite a while, and now, they’re even influencing some of my S/S 14 pieces too! The cute bee hardware upon our new Judy collection injects an element of fun into an otherwise classic design.
Have you noticed that the Judy collection’s hardware is also set upon honeycomb inspired laser cut detailing? So, it’s not just the pretty bee that we designers find inspiring but also its home… Or should that be its interior décor?! The beautiful hexagonal pattern of honeycomb has long inspired fashion designers, and one of the best recent examples of this is probably Alexander McQueen’s S/S 13 collection (below).
As part of the Judy collection, I've chosen to adorn a classic shoulder, timeless crossbody, and a staple purse with busy bee aesthetics in a selection of colours, which are all available at Nica.co.uk.
