Hirst x McqueenOn November 15, Alexander McQueen will unveil a thirty-piece limited-edition collaboration with the artist Damien Hirst. The subject of the project? The brand’s most recognizable asset: the skull-scarf.

The linkage between the house and Hirst celebrates the accessory's ten-year anniversary–it first appeared on McQueen's Spring '03 runway.

Starting at $515, the Alexander McQueen x Damien Hirst scarves will be available at Alexander McQueen stores worldwide and at
