MORBID CURIOSITY: The Bewitching Damien Hirst x Alexander McQueen Collaboration

It has been 10 years of attempts to mimic Alexander McQueen’s famous skull scarf – but this new collab will prove impossible to clone. In celebration of the successful and iconic piece, British artist, Damien Hirst, brings his Entomology series to the chiffon, pongè, cashmere and twill canvas. Taking the geometric layout of spiders, butterflies and other insects to form kaleidoscopic imagery with some blatant – and others hidden – skull signatures in 30 varieties.

Drool over them (or buy them) here and in Alexander McQueen stores.

Recap: Clae Fall Collection + Steven Alan Collaboration Party

As these last few nights of summer wind down we found ourselves basking in a smorgasbord of hors d’oeuvres from My Two Cents LA, cold beverages from New Castle & New Amsterdam vodka and live music by Suitman, Mathieu Schreyer, DJ Jules, and DJ Hiro NYC at Our Favorite Shop for the intimate premier of the Clae Footwear x Steven Alan collaboration kick off party. Tastemakers all over Los Angeles vibed and shopped around for some limited-edition releases of Clae’s next level shoe game. This leading footwear brand took a popularly casual mid-top shoe, the ‘Strayhorn Vibrams’ and treated it to a spa day makeover with a newly pioneered edge of grizzly chic durability. In case you missed the rare collab event, don’t sweat it, there are still some shoes available in deep navy and gravel gray. With only 300 made in each color technique, they are guaranteed to run out quickly, so be sure to get your hands on these rugged stompers ASAP, here.
