The Divine Comedy

Damien Hirst X Alexander McQueen 13

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Alexander McQueen’s « Skull » scarf, Alexander McQueen launches today the Damien Hirst X Alexander McQueen capsule collection, originally based upon Dante Alighieri’s « The Divine Comedy », which features 30 unique creations adapted from Damien Hirst’s « Entomology » series.

Other « The Divine Comedy »-inspired collections : Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 1996-1997 (this collection was titled « Dante »), Olympia Le-Tan (in January 2012, Olympia Le-Tan unveiled a collection influenced by Italian literary classics, which included a clutch with an embroidered motif of the cover of Dante Alighieri’s « The Divine Comedy » book, as part of a project as guest designer of Florence’s Pitti W trade fair), Rachel Frank (the collection that Rachel Frank presented, in May 2008, when she was a student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, was a tribute to Dante Alighieri’s « The Divine Comedy »).

To read about Damien Hirst-inspired collections or collaborations, and about collections with skulls, search for the « Damien Hirst » and « Skulls » posts that I have respectively published on April 14, 2012 and on October 31, 2012.

    Perhaps Zadig & Voltaire’s Skull/Butterfly watches and motifs fit in as well.

      So do I, thanks !!! The contrast between its dark side (skull) and light side (butterflies) is breathtaking ! When you grow older, I wish you, one day, to feel such beautiful butterflies in your stomach ! XO

      Moi, j’adore les “Skulls” d’Alexander McQueen (je vais “crâner” encore un peu, mais je possède 2 foulards avec ces motifs “crânes” MDR !) et le travail de Damien Hirst ! Si je pouvais, j’achèterais les 30 versions différentes de cette luxueuse collaboration ! ❤

    Merci, mes amies ! If I could, I would buy the 30 different designs too ! I already adore my 2 “normal” Alexander McQueen “Skull” scarves, but these ones are artistic masterpieces that I’d love to frame ! They should make an exhibition before they’re all sold out ! XOXO
