SILK STORY: Alexander McQueen has created a capsule collection of silk scarves to mark the launch of the designer’s “Savage Beauty” retrospective at the Victoria and Albert Museum, opening on Saturday. Each scarf features one of five designs drawn from signature house creations such as the Armadillo shoes from spring 2010, and the Spray Painted Dress from spring 1999. “Our silks remain the most popular and accessible product from the house, and we wanted everyone to be able to own a memento celebrating ‘Savage Beauty,’ featuring imagery from Lee’s most memorable collections,” said McQueen’s chief executive officer Jonathan Akeroyd. The capsule collection will be available in limited runs of only 100 for each design, and the scarves will retail for $595 at the Alexander McQueen flagship on Bond Street in London and at alexandermcqueen.com.
