This trend actually started a buzz last year on the Alexander McQueen Spring 2013 runways, with golden bee and honeycomb prints, not to mention bees on tortoise collars, cuffs and belts.

While animal heads (cheetah, fox, etc.) and snakes are all the rage right now on accessories, keep an eye out for flying insects inspired by these highly influential fashion designers.
