Runway Reality: Honey Bee

by Amanda Bedgood

From McQueen to Mignon, beekeepers equal sweet style

We love some sweet style and the honeycombs all over Mignon Faget were just the kind of unique fashion forward thing we love over here at IND Style. The Hive Collection includes a bevy of pieces from the ebony necklace with a small honeycomb on the clasp to the bronze cuff we're drooling over. There are more demure pieces like the honeycomb necklace and a bracelet that's a series of silver honeycombs. Even home goods at Mignon Faget were abuzz with napkin rings of honeycomb and some beautiful bowls with sparkling gold accents.

We weren't the only ones that took a liking to the unique Hive Collection. Mignon Faget's marketing and PR gal Coeli Hilferty told us tastemakers are clamoring for the honeycomb-decked pieces after the frenzy of bee love radiating at Alexander McQueen's spring collection that debuted in October. Sarah Burton (queen bee of McQueen) brought out models in honeycomb-patterned pants, covered in honey-hued fabrics and donning a modernly structured beekeeper's veil. While we doubt any of us will be rocking beekeeper veils come spring, we will certainly be wearing some honeycombs.
