Like her mentor, designer Sarah Burton chose to keep up the edgy signature of the Alexander McQueen label by playing with innovative prints and patterns this spring 2013 season and the innovative designs couldn’t have been better underlined than through the use of chic, edgy and unique looking accessories. The brand has always impacted the fashion scene using bold patterns and fierce lines and although Sarah Burton has infused a little bit of femininity into the designs since she was appointed creative director, the essence of the brand is still well preserved.
As far as accessories go, Alexander McQueen’s spring 2013 shoes, bags and jewelry followed closely into the steps of the theme chosen for the collection. Everything about bees inspired the designs and the accessories, so obviously stunning bee applications, honeycomb motifs, beekeeper’s veil patterns dominated the accessories that completed the designs. The extravagant shoes created seem to display a certain dose of sexiness brought through modernist designs, clear soles filled with colored beads and honeycomb details. A pair of thigh high boots stole the spotlight through their fierceness and ‘cheekiness’, so be warned that these shoes will make jaws drop from first sight.
The brand’s handbags seem to be a bit more generous as far as variety goes as they seem to provide a smooth transition from classic to contemporary with a bit of an edgy twist. Stylish honeycomb pattern totes and a stylish hot pink bag offer a more classic, casual approach to style while the fab box clutches that are a trademark of the McQueen label help keep the look up-to-date adding a high dose of elegance and power to a look. Keeping up with the theme, the jewelry pieces created for the spring 2013 season display stylish metallic&gems bees that have a certain edginess and luxuriousness that capture attention from first glimpse, so let yourself be captivated by the innovative designs signed Alexander McQueen by browsing through the complete spring 2013 accessories collection.
