Alexander McQueen’s Skull Scarf Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary With A Buggy Update From Damien HirstNov 13, 2013 @ 10:43 am
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the brand’s iconic skull scarf, Alexander McQueen has collaborated with British artist Damien Hirst to launch an exclusive collection of scarves in honor of the original design. Since making it’s debut in McQueen’s spring 2003 Irere collection, the scarf has become a signature accessory of the house seen on a multitude of celebrities — Beyoncé, Johnny Depp, Kim Kardashian, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Nicole Richie to name a few — and it’s popularity shows no sign of letting up. One of the most coveted accessories of the past decade, the scarf is also a lasting symbol of the spirit of McQueen himself, who passed away in 2010. The Damien Hirst x Alexander McQueen scarf collection consists of 30 designs, each adapted from Hirst’s Entomology series. Butterflies, bugs, spiders and other insects have been worked to form kaleidoscopic geometric shapes, laid out to create the trademark McQueen skull motif in a variety of different designs. We are loving this new take on the house’s classic piece! Shop the limited-edition collection starting November 15th, with prices ranging from $515 to $1175, at Alexander McQueen stores worldwide and on alexandermcqueen.com.
