For the Birds: Fashion is Flying the Flamingo Flag

The owl is dead. It may have gone to sea with a pussycat in a beautiful pea-green boat because it is ashamed of its current involvement with the Late Late Show (seriously, that Eurovision débacle made my ears bleed) or it might just have strained its neck trying to do the 360° thing. But either way the owl is kaput.

Yes, no more strigine motifs on tees and tops, we can wave goodbye to the wise one. And while foxes may have had their moment in the printed sun, there is a new trend flying to a shelf near you.
