@WALNUTCRUST FOR BAGAHOLICBOY
Call them odd, quirky or unique, there’s no denying that these bags from Burberry’s Beasts collection have caught your attention. Why? Because everyone else’s bags all look way too similar, it is certainly interesting, a bold step in fact, that the storied British luxury house’s latest bags embody the oddly beautiful in the form of mythical beasts.
A menagerie made up of fish, owls and swans, they come in an eclectic mix of colourful water snake trims on a leather body. Inspired by the fauna found in age-old English manuscripts, these bags may not fit much, but are to be celebrated for their craftsmanship and fine detailing. Handcrafted in Italy, each bag takes up to nine hours to produce, in large due to the amount of work needed to piece the individual pieces together, evident in the life-like scalloped scales on the fish, the movable wings on the owl and even the petal-shaped skins accented with gold-toned metal hardware on the swan.
Priced at SGD6595 for the Fish Crossbody Bag and the Owl Crossbody Bag, these 2 are only available via Burberry’s online store. As for the Swan Crossbody Sling, you can purchase it from MatchesFashion at SGD4540, while the Mini Buckle Bag featuring owl eyes (SGD1495) is available only at Burberry’s online and brick-and-mortar stores.
