MMM: Burberry’s brought out the beast in the high street

Aaaages ago, I posted about Topshop’s homage to Burberry’s owl motifs (here).

The British super-brand showed off owls at their RTW AW12 show – and the rest of the high street has followed. Everyone from George at Asda to Next and Debenhams are bringing out their own version hoot-suite (sorry).

But it isn’t just our feathered friends. Animal motifs in general have got their cool on for Autumn.

Wear with skinny jeans and a camo jacket for a modern way to do casual – and to avoid the geek look.

Here are a few of my favourites:



  1. Tan squirrel with faux fur tail, £16, F&F at Tesco
  2. Sheep, £38, H! by Henry Holland at Debenhams
  3. Owl, £35, Marks & Spencer (in store September)
  4. Peacock, £20, Matalan
  5. Purple ‘Nutkin,’ £49, Fusion at Monsoon
  6. Owl, £15, George at Asda
