everything about bees by Alexander McQueen

Sarah Burton's inspiration for the spring summer collection for Alexander McQueen was based around bees. Sounds odd to you? Then think about honey based colors, the pattern of comb and the ultra-feminine shape, according to the designer herself, derived from the pin-ups of Alberto Vargas.

A cheeky bra strap here, a body in resin tortoiseshell there. Or the sinuous drape of a red dress over a honeycomb bustier are just examples for the eroticism that even Vargas himself would have enjoyed.
Altogether a very conceptual and precise collection with a clear message: "Back to womanhood after last season's overblown proportions."
