Inspired by a selection of creatures, the designs feature fictional birds and animals from the medieval English manuscripts. Illustrated and "hatched" in the Burberry design studio in London, the beasts—anything but terrifying—are further brought to life with embroidered appliqués and patchwork details. Result? Charming characters that exude hints of quirk. Whether you'd like to dip your toes into the collection by adding a cute keychain to your day-off bags, or go bold with a notice-me owl bag slung across your denim-on-denim get-up, the accessories—in a rich colour palette, are bound to uplift your ensembles (and mood!). On the other hand, the ready-to-wear pieces—available in the form of cosy knits and printed frocks that sway with your every move strike the right balance between cute and chic.
