A highlight of the Spring Summer 2013 showings was Sarah Burton’s delivery for brand McQueen. Themed around the majesty of the Queen Bee, models showcased the collection to the backdrop of a superb film by John Maybury.
Honeycomb geometry, textures and patterning featured with bejewelled bee detailing – suggesting that the femininity of bees has replaced signature skulls, and perhaps, Sarah Burton as done what many declared she couldn’t – that Burton saved McQueen!
