We’re buzzing about the Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2013 collection.
And we mean that quite literally with Sarah Burton introducing a bee theme into next season’s RTW range.
The theme, which was also referenced by Karl Lagerfeld for the upcoming Chanel collection, was however more prevalent here with amber and gold hues giving a huge nod to the beehive.
Models marched down the catwalk in bustiers and cropped trousers all showing off a hive pattern, while jackets and intricately designed tops clinched at the waist channelled a Queen Bee status.
Beekeeper hats made out of netting continued the theme, while hooped, structured style Can-Can 80s dresses with reptile-like fabrics gave the humble bee more of a subtle nod.
With this collection its clear Burton was making her stand as the Queen Bee of PFW.
