We were suprised that this collaboration hadn't happened before, but Damien Hirst has teamed up with the Alexander McQueen team with a special (read: will sell-out fast) collection of skull scarves. McQueen's skull scarf collection has always been one of the late-designer's iconic looks, and the look has always fit Hirst's style of art.
The collection features a fantastic film and photography from SØLVE SUNDSBØ.
From McQueen's site: In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the skull scarf, Alexander McQueen presents an exclusive collaboration with Damien Hirst.
The collection offers 30 unique designs exclusively available from Alexander McQueen boutiques and online at alexandermcqueen.com. The partnership seamlessly plays on the shared aesthetic vision of Hirst and McQueen, in which an interest in symmetrical design is combined with strong references to the natural world. Each artwork is adapted from Hirst’s Entomology series; butterflies, bugs, spiders and other insects have been worked into each scarf design to form kaleidoscopic geometric shapes, laid out to create the signature McQueen skull motif.
Available from November 15.
