The Desirable Daisy

60's daisy prints at Prada S/S'13

There's no doubt in my mind that daisies, demure and delightful, are the new 'it' flower. Taking the spotlight at Prada S/S'13 with an Andy Warhol pop-art feel, you couldn't help but be blown away by their beautiful simplicity. Henry Holland merged the symbol of innocence into bold and brilliant splashes of tie-dye, proving the daisy to be anything but a wallflower. Elsewhere at London Fashion Week, Holly Fulton delivered a bubble-gum hued parade of floral embellishments and appliques, yet the daisy stood its ground as a symbol of primness amongst more riotous colours and prints.

    I love the uncomplicated prettiness of daisy print- Miranda Kerr's Topshop cut-out sides frock worn with a classic pair of Isabel Marant studded boots nails summer-city-chic without looking too girly. Likewise, Alexa pulls off the daisy by adding the quirky combination of a leather mini and beige canvas shoes. Her glamorous 50's cat-eye sunnies and tiny handbag add just the right dose of cutesiness.

    Whether you embrace your inner girly girl and go all out with a sweet daisy-patterned dress- the perfect eco-friendly look for that special garden party- or funk up your flowers with an unusual piece (Miss Selfridges's brace-attached shorts balance ditsy with edgy) or a graphic style print, daisies are the cool way to acknowledge vacation season.
