If life were one big Halloween costume party, the Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2013 Runway Show Collection would fit right in. The runway show collection focuses on feminine erotica influences from pinup girls, such as Vargas girls, to stripper cages and fishnets. Longtime Alexander McQueen fan, Kristen Stewart who loves his dark sense of style, probably will not make a red carpet appearance in anything from this particular collection, unless she is looking to cause a huge row in the peanut gallery. Lady Gaga on the other hand would be beyond thrilled for an invitation to stir up a little trouble. The collection surprisingly (just kidding) is also inspired by wasps. It just would not be an Alexander McQueen collection without the presence of insects or skulls.
The collection exaggerates the female hip silhouette in tribute to the wasp. Rich with honeycomb pencil skirts and cropped panel trousers, the collection is more than attention getting with original, matching accessories. The cuff bracelets and ornamental chokers of the collection accentuate the honeycomb-designed mid-shoe heels and stunning hats. The ingredients of the Alexander McQueen 2013 Spring/Summer Collection include unique jacquards, lacquered lace, laser cut patent leather, and silk organza. Sarah Burton states, “It’s about sensuality and skin but not nudity. We also wanted to express lightness, for the clothes almost to hover over the women who wear them.” The Alexander McQueen 2013 Spring/Summer Runway Show Collection is one that is sure to have people buzzing just as loud as the runway show.
