Damien Hirst and Alexander McQueen Launches Exclusive Scarf Collection

cat1_eng

Alexander McQueen announces a collaboration with Damien Hirst to launch an exclusive scarf collection in celebration of the 10th year anniversary of the iconic skull scarf.

The Alexander McQueen skull scarf was first seen in the SS03 Irere collection and since it launching has become a signature accessory of the house.

The Damien Hirst and Alexander McQueen scarf collection consists of 30 one-off designs.  Each is 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 signature McQueen skull motif.  The collaboration 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.

The scarves are available in Chiffon, Pongé, Twill and Cashmere with prices ranging from £315/ €340/ $515 to £715/ €785/ $1175.

All 30 designs are limited and will be available from 15th November 2013 at Alexander McQueen stores worldwide and from the scarf boutique of www.alexandermcqueen.com.

The Fall Skirt

When it comes to fall, there’s nothing quite like a skirt to channel your mood.  From classic to feminine and trendy, skirts can easily take you from work to evening.  Pair it with a jacket for work and remove it to reveal your silk top that’s cocktail hour ready!   And, we love that you can pair them with tights and your favorite boots and flats.   Do you prefer skirts of solid leather or tweed or do you plan to be more adventurous with prints this fall?

A Quick List of Fashion Do’s and Don’ts

accessories

 Here’s our Friday quick list to inspire your wardrobe!  Here’s a few list of do’s and don’ts we’ve been scribbling down lately and we’d love to hear yours! Please share! 

DO: dress for the season. As much as we love leather, these Texas temperatures are not conducive to the cool-weather trend. Save those pieces for later and wear a dress that is breathable for even the steamiest of days.

DON’T: be afraid to dress like him. Take a cue from Parisian street style and indulge in a masculine look. Pant suits are all the rage right now – whether short or long – and it’s a look that can seamlessly transition from board meetings to evening cocktails. (*This Carolina Herrera pantsuit is on our list)

DO: wear white throughout the year. Summer is the perfect time to wear your favorite little white dress, but that doesn’t mean the warmer months get all the fun. Once fall rolls around, scoop up that cream blazer or the off-white trousers you’ve been eyeing.

DON’T: shy away from attention-grabbing prints. Fashion is meant to be fun, so don the leopard, floral, or graphic shift dress that has been hanging in your closet for months. Bonus point: mix and match two patterns to create a stand-out look. (* A FUN print from SCOOP NYC)

DO: stick to what you are comfortable in. Just because something is splashed on the pages of Vogue doesn’t mean it’s an instant success. Maybe you’re too tall for that hemline or can’t get away with wearing a crop top to work. Nobody knows your own style more than you.

DON’T: assume that black means boring. Black is one of the easiest ways to look effortlessly chic, and it is making a big comeback this season. Whether you go head-to-toe in the hue or opt for the classic black and white combo, you can’t go wrong. (* We love this option from Saint Laurent)

DO: Embrace your figure! Don’t get lost in a boxy dress or loose caftan. Buy tailored pieces or cinch your waist with a bold belt. (*This is a perfectly tailored dress from Alexander McQueen)

DON’T: forget to accessorize! This season, invest in a few standout accessories to tie your entire look together. Statement earrings, ornate purses, and structured hats are just a few ways to take your outfit to a new level.
