Vogue Australia : The Sweetest Thing, Model Cassi Van Den Dungen

 

 

“It’s the bee’s knees” is a rather curious saying referring to something superlatively marvelous, and I totally agree as it falls perfectly

into my newest odd enough obsession: the bees and beekeeper universe allegory

and the entire air of mystery revolving such a quirky, obsolete character.

And its subsequent charm.

 

They say you catch more bees

with honey …?

Beekeeper fashion style McQueen

 

 

Alexander McQueen’s highly theatrical collection designed by Sarah Burton hits all the right spots of this theme by emphasizing the perfect hourglass figure, the exquisite details of the hexagonal cells wrapped in the sweet honeycomb, while the golden bees caught in the resin colored structures bind the entire ensemble.

No character’s attire would ever be perfect without the head piece, and the beekeeper hat seems to act

as a protection accessory from all sorts of pesky beasts and their curious gazes.  A”hive’s worth of honeybees” and seduction revolving a character stepped out of Terry Gilliam’s Tideland or  perhaps the more approachable

– but just as absurd – black comedy show Pushing Daisies.
