For as long as I can remember, Alexander McQueen has been my favourite designer. His silhouettes are exquisite, fabrics divine and his use of texture and pattern has inspired so much of my own art and film work in the past. I have lusted over owning a McQueen item for longer than I care to admit, and check the website on a daily basis to cry over the high price of the box clutch that I will forever be in love with, and most probably will never be mine.
However, this Christmas, I became a very lucky lady when my boyfriend bought me this beautiful hand woven 100% silk Alexander McQueen scarf in cream and navy, featuring the iconic Alexander McQueen skull print. It is such a beautiful scarf in a timeless print design that I will genuenly treasure for as long as I own it. Being crafted from such fine, delicate silk, you must ensure that you take proper care of the item, to avoid puckering the weave and distorting the pattern, therefore I keep mine hung up safely in my wardrobe to ensure no damage can be done- nothing annoys me more than when people are careless and mindlessly damage such beautiful items
The next item at the top of my McQueen wish list is a scarf from the new Damien Hirst collaboration, whose scarf designs are some of the most beautiful works of print design I have ever seen... They are so exquisitely beautiful that it's only a matter of time before I blow my entire savings on them, (so watch this space there may be another review sooner than you think...)
