Alexander McQueen’s signature skull print scarf is receiving a makeover courtesy of Damien Hirst.

The house tapped the English artist, whose diamond-encrusted skull called “For the Love of God” made headlines in 2007, to create a series of 30 limited edition scarves to toast to the accessories prominent print. Hirst used bug and butterfly motifs from his “Entomology“ series from 2009 to recreate the skulls in chiffon, pongé, twill, and cashmere.

We can see why both would be so compatible as both Hirst and McQueen added their own spin on the macabre and share “an interest in symmetrical design is combined with strong references to the natural world,” according to Women’s Wear Daily.

The Damien Hirst and Alexander McQueen scarves will be released just in time for the holidays at Alexander McQueen boutiques and at AlexanderMcqueen.com.
