One of the most iconic fashion symbols of the mid-sixties has to be Mary Quant's much-loved daisy design, an image that has been alluded to time and time again in retro styles. While modern interpretations of Quant's designs can often veer into cliché, this Daisy Doile Skirt from French Connection does it with subtle chic.
The use of textural lace fabric counters the simplistic shape of the high waist miniskirt, incorporating the daisy pattern in an understated way. With a sleek a-line, the skirt avoids the figure-skimming looks of modern minis, finished in a rich retro navy shade.
It's available now from French Connection for £62.
