Known as the “prettiest 12-hour shoes,” ever-romantic shoe label Bella Belle just released its newest collection, and we’re swooning.
Meant to symbolize resilience, renewal and diversity, Metamorphosis, as the collection of five shoe styles is called, was inspired by the transformation process of a caterpillar into a butterfly to empower women to feel comfortable in their own skin as they go through stages of their own unique transformations.
The Ruffled Bootie
A cocoon is reinterpreted through layers of pleated tulle and ruffles.
Inspired by the movement of a butterfly, the uppers and ankle straps this stunning sandal are shaped to mimic fluttering wings.
Sculptural bows on this elegant slingback metaphorically represent a butterfly’s wings.
Weaves and webbing of thread embroidery echo the natural habitat of butterflies.
Trailing vines and blossoming flowers represent a new season life.
