Damien Hirst for McQueen

A quintessentially British collab

Damien Hirst and Alexander McQueen are joining forces to celebrate ten years of the latter’s iconic skull-print scarf.

In a match made in Brit design heaven, Hirst will work butterflies, bugs, spiders and other insects featured in his famous Entomology series into the square silk design, which first made its appearance during McQueen’s Irere collection for spring/summer 2003.

Available in chiffon, pongé, twill and cashmere, the capsule will feature 30 limited-edition designs priced from £315 each.

‘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,’ notes the release.

The designs will hit Alexander McQueen boutiques (and alexandermcqueen.com) mid-November.
