The collaboration between Damien Hirst and Alexander McQueen that was announced back in August, has finally materialised. Decorated with Hirst’s signature skulls and kaleidoscope butterfly motifs, the limited-edition scarves were created to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of McQueen’s signature skull scarf.
Hirst told the New York Times that the collaboration was “something we should have done years ago. I love McQueen and think this collaboration is a marriage made in heaven.”
Indeed it is. The skull motif that has been ever present within both designers collection, and often the hero image, has been emblazoned with the upmost respect, and serve as a fitting tribute to the late designer’s obsession with the symbol as well. The intricate detailed scarves will not doubt be on everyones hit list.
The Hirst X McQueen scarves, which appeared on Alexander McQueen’s website on Friday, are being sold for between $515 and $1,175 starting Nov. 15.
