Daisy Daze

Daisy

In a daisy print vs Daisy Buchanan head-to-head, two types of Prada girl emerged this season – creating an unwitting fashion battle between floral prints and flapper fancies in the process. Fashion designer, female entrepreneur and industry icon Miuccia Prada switched from her A/W muscle car and flame-filled ‘Vintage Americana’ collection to let the S/S13’s style odds be ever in a daisy’s favour. But, which side will you pick? For those of you who can’t quite afford Prada’s price-tag, we’ve found some ultra stylish alternatives…

DAISY #1 : Floral Haze

When it comes to new season fashion, the ongoing love affair between spring/summer and floral prints is stronger than ever, but this time around childlike yet coquettish daisy prints are leaders of the bunch. Springing straight from the catwalks to the wardrobes of Anna Dello Russo and Alexa Chung, this power-punching posy is now beautifully blooming in both designer and high street collections. A style cert with the wellie-clad festival fash pack, daisy delights aren’t just simply cropping up on pretty pastel dresses like we’ve seen so many times before. Instead, you can channel the trend subtly with hand-picked daisy-chain jewels or go all-out bold with graphic, monochrome printed pant suits and optic white and yellow Manolos.

Feminista Pick: Spanish Moss

DAISY #2 : Buchanan Beauty

If for some reason you’re not acquainted with the effervescent Daisy Buchanan, you soon will be thanks to Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming adaptation of F.Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, The Great Gatsby. Staring English rose Carey Mulligan as the flighty flapper girl herself and the ever-lovely Leonardo Di Caprio as Jay, Miuccia Prada stepped up to form a cool collaboration with costume designer Catherine Martin, helping to create over 40 looks inspired by styles from the Prada and Miu Miu archive. Twinkling twenties styling has been lingering around a few seasons, but for S/S13 make sure your Gatsby-inspired wardrobes are packed with fringing, jade, sequins and a refreshing modernist attitude. Cocktails required, cloche hat optional.
