Alexander McQueen‘s iconic skull scarf recently reached the age of 10-years old, an event that was celebrated with a redesign courtesy of British artist Damien Hirst. The limited edition scarves, of which there are only 30, draw inspiration from his entomology series and feature a whole host of creepy crawlies.

The large scale paintings were composed from the intricate placement of butterflies, spiders and other insects that merge into kaleidoscopic images and geometric shapes. These shapes combined reveal the image of Alexander McQueen’s unmistakable skull motif, a design that was first seen back in the Irere collection of 2003.

Each of the scarves is priced between £315 ($508) and £715 ($1153), depending on whether it’s silk twill or cashmere. As an added bonus, acclaimed fashion photographer Sølve Sundsbø has also created a film which aims to bring the designs to life.
