Are we at that stage where we're starting to get excited about next season yet? No sooner has Autumn / Winter 2012 arrived, but we're anticipating Spring / Summer 2013's (yes, THIRTEEN) imminent arrival. If the thought of it is not enough to whet your appetite, perhaps the below video will? Alexander McQueen have just released a beautifully shot backstage film from their SS13 show back in February, and we think it's well worth a look.

Here's what the Creative Director at the famed design house, Sarah Burton, had to say about the Spring / Summer 2013 offering , "The collection is a study of femininity. We looked at erotica. Vargas girls, cages, corsets and crinolines and the idealisation of the female form. Nothing is set in a particular period. 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."

Never ones to fail us on the creative front (remember their Fall 2012 video from last July?), this few minute film seems to capture the essence of their Spring / Summer 2012 collection, don't you think?
