McQueen spearhead, Sarah Burton, continues to awe us with her highly compelling and beautifully effeminate collections. S/S13 was no exception. Initiated by the inspirations of mother nature and her inhabitants, Burton looked to the working of Bees and their intertwined connection to the female form. The result was a collection dominated by wide expanses, exaggerated silhouettes, bold and rich colors, opulent jewels, delicacy where necessary, and soft curves.
Interview from Dazed Digital and photos from Style.com give us a glimpse into the inspiration of Burton's execution.
Everything was exploding last season so I really wanted to really bring it back to what the silhouettes of the house were, by embracing femininity and all female forms and looking at the hips, the waist and the bust. Then we began to peel it away as I wanted it to feel erotic but not overtly sexual.
