Alexander McQueen the honey pot

the collection Spring | Summer 2013

Sarah Burton had bees on the brain this evening for her spring/summer 2013 Alexander McQueen collection – them and a study of the female form.

“It was bringing back the silhouette of the house and embracing the female form – the hip and bust. But there was a lightness to it. It still felt erotic but not overt,” explained Burton backstage after the show, joking that “most women are worker bees” – which made then for the perfect collection match.

And this really was a perfect collection – taking honey in all its forms and working it up into the most beautiful clothes. Honeycomb mesh made for sharply-executed jackets and pencil skirts, a circular mesh disc for a new take on a beekeeper’s hat up top; it then morphed into being honeycomb jacquard for more precise tailoring with cropped trousers beneath and scythe-like shoes with glistening heels that seemed to melt into existence.
