Fashion Olympics: McQueen scarves, mitt mania
Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared also designed costumes for the closing ceremony performers. And even the late Alexander McQueen was commissioned by Holt Renfrew to design 250 signature red-and-white scarves for the Olympics with maple leaves superimposed on his trademark human skull pattern. While, the Gucci Group will continue the McQueen line posthumously (much of McQueen’s Fall-Winter 2010 collection was completed before his death) the scarf is officially the most recent design released to the fashion public.
Red mittens, along with the Alexander McQueen scarves, are at a premium now (completely sold out). In fact, fans are searching for another way to get their hands on them. On eBay, the scarves are going for about $500 USD and on Kijiji, an online post has the scarf selling at a hefty $1,500 CAD.
