Burberry Beasts: The Bold And The (Oddly) Beautiful

Other Brands

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.

Burberry Beasts Collection

Other Brands

IMAGE: BURBERRY

Inspired by mythological creatures found in mediaeval English manuscripts, Burberry’s new Beasts collection is a colourful bestiary of the weird and the wonderful that you’ll find on a selection of RTW for both men and women, bags and accessories. With the majority of the bags and accessories centred around embroidered leather appliqués (you know, for the cute 3D effect), from the adorable owl-inspired Patchwork(shown above) to another bag that’s more a bucket-shaped sling with large eyes and leather feathers, it’s clearly a collection meant for those with a sense of humour and the attitude to match.

Rounding up the collection are pieces to love, from, erm, is that a hedgehog coin purse (shown above), to fish-shaped key pouch (shown below)? All fun pieces that are also functional, you can use them as is or hang them on your bag and use them as bag charms as well, because why not, right?

No word yet on their exact prices, but with the collection slated to launch early July 2017 in Singapore, you can always head down to Burberry boutiques in ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Paragon for a closer look. Or, you can always stake out Burberry’s online site and just buy them online where they’ll deliver direct to your doorstep as well.

Burberry Bridle Crossbody Bag

Other Brands

IMAGE: @WALNUTCRUST FOR BURBERRY

Burberry’s Bridle is no stranger to fans of the British label, having made its debut at Burberry’s Henry Moore-inspired runway collection previously. What’s new is this gorgeous addition to the Bridle family – the Bridle Crossbody Bag, and the fact that it comes in a size that is in-between her older sisters – the Bridle and Baby Bridle bags.

It measures some 22.5 cm x 21.5 cm, which makes it slightly smaller than the original Bridle (25.5 cm x 25.5 cm) but taller than the Baby Bridle (15 cm x 20 cm). With that said, however, its width is similar to the Baby Bridle though, with both coming in at 8 cm, a cute size that stays close to the body. Another difference? The detachable top handle is missing in this new variation, and in its place lies an adjustable strap that stays attached onto smaller loop rings, making for a much less fussy piece where you simply throw on the bag and you’re good to go.

Besides the size update, the new Bridle also comes in an all-new deerskin exterior that’s soft and lush all at once. Simple and chic, the bag is finished with a single zip pocket, embossed Burberry lettering on the outside and 3 colour options (Black, Pale Clementine and Slate Green). Retailing at SGD1975, you can find the new Bridle Crossbody at all Burberry boutiques islandwide, or simply make your purchase via Burberry’s online store if you’re way too lazy to make trip down town.

Burberry DK88: A British Classic

Other Brands

IMAGES: BURBERRY

It’s been two months since we last took an in-depth look into Burberry’s bag-of-the-moment, the DK88, and it’s time for an update. And if you are still lukewarm regarding the colours it came in during its initial launch, maybe these all-new pastel colours will have your heart warming up to them a little more. From Ash Rose and Celadon Green to Chamomile Yellow and Slate Blue, these 4 new hues round up Burberry’s entire 13-colour palette strong offering as far as the Medium DK88 is concerned.

The distinct trench leather, one that’s ‘inspired by the fabric at the heart of the brand’, shines through even more with these new pastel bags, and at 31 cm x 24 cm, the Medium DK88 (SGD3695) is a perfect blend of new and old. Old in its vintage charm, new because of the way it has been interpreted, finished with fine workmanship, quality materials and that stunner of a gold-tone clasp that fronts the bag.

In Singapore, you’ll be able to pick up the Medium DK88 at Burberry ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Paragon, which by the way does come with its very own leather shoulder sling as well. But before you head down, do watch Burberry’s new short video that introduces these British pastel beauties.

Burberry: Mr. Burberry Eau De Parfum

Other Brands

IMAGE: BURBERRY

Scents have a special way of uplifting you, and a spritz or two in the morning can instantly change your mood as you start the day at work all fresh and ready to charge ahead. Ever so often, we’d like to pamper ourselves with a new scent, something familiar yet unique in its own right. Other times, we’ve got that one friend who seems to be on a lookout for one and can’t seem to find that perfect scent to suit him. Well, Burberry’s latest scent, Mr. Burberry Eau De Parfum, might just do the trick for the lovers of all things bold and sensual.

EDPs are generally one notch deeper than EDTs with the former staying on longer and generally lasting through the day, while the latter typically wears off in a couple of hours. Created by Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Bailey, together with master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, Mr. Burberry Eau De Parfum is the sensual interpretation of its previous EDT release, with top notes of tarragon and cinnamon layered with patchouli and finished with a warm base of woody amber and smokey vetiver.

And if you’re one to love monogramming everything for that extra personal touch, this service continues in-stores and online, with each bottle customisable with up to 3 initials. Available at all Burberry counters across the island, Mr. Burberry Eau De Parfum retails at SGD112, SGD155 and SGD187 for the 50ml, 100 ml and 150 ml bottles respectively.
