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
