Yeah, I don't think I'd be able to restrain myself if I saw that one! It's an amazing colourway; I love it! Congrats on a beautiful purchase.

The turquoise and grey is lovely and very wearable.
I was in Selfridges last week and they had a gorgeous black and multicoloured design echoing the computer generated prints in the last collection. Does anyone know the last few years of seasonal designs? I have a scarf which I can't place in a collection.

I've always loved these scarves, and since McQueen recently passed away I thought now was the time to get one but all the silk ones are too feminine for my taste... I was able to put my hands on one made of modal, in grey with black skulls.
Less original and vibrant than some of the gorgeous coloured silk ones but at least I know I'll wear it

^ Could we be talking about the same one? Grey with blue skulls was also available. I had never heard of "modal" before reading the tag on the scarf but after a quick search on Google it seems it's the same as jersey! Anyway I paid mine €175 so it would make sense!

^ That's the one I got, except the skulls are black. The blue looks good too. About the pink, I wouldn't go there either I do have pink stuff but as a detail on a scarf it looks too feminine IMO

Just in case someone does here is an image of the scarf...I have the chiffon 1m x 1m and my mother has a heavier silk version, the same size. The skulls are made from a paisley design and a less busy paisley border goes around the edge. The skulls are gold with tiny accents of green, as is the border. I haven't been able to trace a similar scarf online and McQueen showed the merest hint of paisley in FW2008 mens collection; the scarf apparently came from SS2008. These are definitely women's scarves as they're labelled as shawls. The codes off the label for the chiffon are: 2008 3 U. 8030978723. 205733010Q6275. FO Paisley Skull Chiffon. EFCO8000042. It's bugging me because I like to reference most pieces. I have a skull scarf belt from the Shipwreck collection, at least that's easy to place as it went down the catwalk.

I have a sort of blood red one with black skulls, it's a few seasons old now I think, but I absolutely love it. I mostly wrap it around my hair as a sort of wide Bardot-style hairband.
Photograph is my own, apologies for poor quality.
