I've found the next cult Instagram shoe and you're going to want it bad

This fashion editor is VERY excited about them

I love all kinds of shoes, I probably have at least 50 pairs in my wardrobe, so it takes a lot for me to be really blown away by a pair. So when I found these beauties, I just had to share them.

First off, they're by the brand that single-handedly put basket bags back on the map: Cult Gaia (you'll have seen the Ark Bamboo bag all over your Instagram). So the fact designer Jasmin Larian is branching out into shoes with Net-A-Porter is pretty exciting news in itself.

And needless to say, the result is pure #shoefie gold. There are raffia flats in neutral tones of sand and black, as well as suede sandals with a bamboo heel to match the bag offering.

But the real showstopper for me is the Alia leather mule, which comes in gold, white and tan, featuring a delicate cut-out leather pattern and a round orb that is more objet d'art than heel.

For summer, I'll be wearing mine with an oversized linen suit or a vintage-style floral dress.

You're more than welcome.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
