Mini Moodboard: Queen Bee

Artist Aganetha Dyck teams up with bees to produce sculptures wrapped in honeycomb, like this porcelain figurine. The artist draws attention to our misguided lack of respect for these amazing creatures and our fateful dependence on them.

Also pictured is Sarah Burton's exquisite Queen Bee collection for Alexander McQueen. It makes me wonder if there is another sort of colony collapse disorder occurring in the fashion world. Whether is speaks to the suicides of McQueen and Isabella Blow or even the multi-national conglomerates that gorge themselves upon consumers and smaller brands die off.
