I just bought two more today, Green with Black skulls (chiffon) and Silvery Grey with same tone skulls (pure silk).

I love the scarves but somehow I am changing my mind about them. Can you lovely ppl give me some suggestions? 'keeper' or 'I say no no'?

excuse the messy room

oh also was the original skull scarf made in silk and not chiffon? I read that the silk version is more desirable to collect.

thanks

The original versions were silk chiffon weren't they? I prefer the silk/wool ones personally, they're bigger usually also.

Does anyone know when the jersey versions will be released? I thought they were part of the SS10 range, but there's been nothing around of them so far.

As far as I'm concerned the first ones were silk chiffon as well.

kaka, keep all of them. I'm sure you'll get lots of wear out of them.

I have two silk chiffon ones (cream/purple and pink/grey) and one that's a little different made of silk only with a pattern and big skulls and I'm actually thinking about getting another one. I love them esp. in the spring.

I saw a grey/blue jersey one in a Boston boutique the other day but all of the major department stores around here don't have any (yet?)...

ETA: They're available from the McQueen website though.

thanks ladies for your replies.

Velony - yes the silver one is pure silk which is thicker and not see through as the silk chiffon version. I find the material heavy n quite delicate compared to the silk chiffon ones.

Can anyone please post a pic of the jersey ones? Now I'm thinking may I should get one of those instead of another silk/chiffon one.

All my Alexander McQueen scarves are stolen from my mom. She has a cabinet full of them, I swear she's obsessed. Velony I'll see if I can post some pics for you once I'm done studying! I personally love the ones from the SS10 collection, they're a vision on acid. So damn cool.

i know there are a lot of (GOOD) fakes on ebay, but i was wondering if anyone could authenticate phoenix.trade's scarves... they sell a lot and i can't tell if they're authentic or not, considering they seem to have a lot of them and all for BIN.
