For Spring 2013, designer Sarah Burton was inspired by beehives, a theme that came across literally in beekeeper-esque hats, a thrilling black and gold palette, and, of course, a wasp waist. And while we usually shy away from anything that stings, Burton's jacquard suits, textured dresses, and honeycomb-inspired cage shoes had us all abuzz. Watch the entire runway now, as it is, quite simply, the bee's knees.
For Spring 2012, Riccardo Tisci focused on tailoring, turning out models in exquisite pantsuits and peplum cocktail frocks all in a lovely neutral palette of blush, white, black, and army green. The usual Givenchy edge surfaced in exotic details like eel skin, laser-cut leather, and chiffon sequins. To see the entire collection, watch the runway now!
