Artist Damien Hirst is set to collaborate with luxury clothing and accessory brand Alexander McQueen to create 30 new designs to celebrate a decade of the brand’s famous skull-print scarf.

Hirst will combine the original motif with his own ‘Entomology’ series of colourful insects to create kaleidoscopic artwork.Hirst was chosen because he combines his interest in symmetrical designs with the natural world, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

scarvesThe scarves are priced at 315 pounds (over 480 dollars) and the pieces will go on sale from November at Alexander McQueen boutiques, as well as the brand’s official website.

Also, the accessories will be made available in chiffon, ponge, twill and cashmere material.

Hirst has also worked on his own skull-themed projects, including his 2007 art piece “For the Love of God”, which featured a platinum cast of a human skull encrusted with 8,601 diamonds.
