2. Alexander McQueen + Damien Hirst
Alexander McQueen has teamed up with artist Damien Hirst for a one-of-a-kind collection of 30 scarf designs in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the skull scarf. Each artwork is adapted from Hirst’s Entomology series; butterflies, bugs, spiders and other insects have been worked into each scarf design to form kaleidoscopic geometric shapes, laid out to create the signature McQueen skull motif. www.alexandermcqueen.com.
3. Fendi + Delfina Delettrez
Delfina Delettrez, heiress to the Fendi fashion house, collaborated with the house’s accessories designer, Silvia Venturini, and Karl Lagerfeld to design the jewelry (think furry rings and endless stacked cuffs) for Fendi’s spring 2014 collection.
