You might think you're carpy, with your battered old kettle and your Instagram photos of retainer slings at dawn. But you're just an amateur. An amateur in a chunky-knit sweater making salmon risotto in your Ridge Monkey.
None of that is even remotely carpy in the face of this year's must-have accessory. An owl.
We aren't joking. Here's the proof.
An owl on a bankside chair? You got it.
An owl in a bivvy? Admit it, you want one.
A chunky common and an owl on the captor's shoulder? Just drink it all in.
A chunky common and an owl on the captor's shoulder RE-IMAGINED IN THE MEDIUM OF GRAPHITE? This is off the scale.

Now how carpy is this? Just count the ways.
Six-year-old twins Maisy and Ayla Douce, at Ashmead, with cable-knit jumpers, with buckets hats AND an owl. Peak carpy.
So there you have it. Owls. So on trend right now.
