McQueen's iconic skull print scarf makes a comeback with the help of the art world's enfant terrible, Damien Hirst
Marking 10 years of Alexander McQueen's cult must-have skull scarf, the British fashion house - now with Sarah Burton at the helm - is staging a revival of the accessory that spawned a thousand rip offs.
Pairing up with controversy courting artist Damien Hirst, designs merge McQueens iconic skull pattern with Hirst's signature entomology prints (bugs, spiders and butterflies) on luxury cashmere, twill and chiffon fabrics. The result is an abstract, kaleidoscopic coloured collection with a very dark undercurrent. There are thirty designs in total but this limited edition line is expected to sell out fast.
