You don't need to be an animal lover to adore the Burberry Beasts

You don't need to be an animal lover to adore the Burberry Beasts

Where the wild things are

English mythology come alive in Burberry's fall range of bags, clothing and accessories

It would be unwise to assume that all icons in the fashion sphere are of the human creed. Like Audrey Hepburn was to Tiffany, in this digital day, Fendirumi is to Fendi, and now Burberry, the Beasts. Specifically, a host of characters inspired by folkloric creatures.

Speaking for both the brand's aptitude for irreverence and storied provenance — the pedigree of these animals tracing back to English manuscripts of yore — they find their 21st century home on an assortment of Burberry mainstays; printed and appliquéd on crossbody bags, top handles, backpacks, small leather goods, jumpers, T-shirts and keychains for men, women and children. 

Tipped to raise fashion's fun quotient up a few notches, Choupette, be warned. This gang of cool, new critters are destined to be the talk of the town. 

Available at Burberry boutiques from July 2017. Located at Ion Orchard (2nd floor), 2 Orchard Turn, and The Paragon (1st floor), 290 Orchard Road, in Singapore.
