Alexander McQueen has tapped Damien Hirst to create 30 limited-edition scarves in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the brand’s signature scarf print.

Each print is inspired by Hirst’s Entomology paintings – butterflies, bugs, spiders and other insects form kaleidoscopic geometric shapes, laid out to create the McQueen skull motif.

The brand said that Hirst was chosen because of his shared aesthetic vision, “in which an interest in symmetrical design is combined with strong references to the natural world.”

They will be available from McQueen boutiques and alexandermcqueen.com from mid-November in chiffon, pongé, twill and cashmere, reports WWD , with prices starting at £315.
