If you're finding that the lengthening days and warmer weather mean that you're venturing out and about on your bicycle once more then why not treat yourself to the Carrie Bicycle Basket?
Inspired by traditional crochet tablecloths but made out of far more enduring polypropylene, the Carrie can be used as a shopping or picnic basket and even flipped upside-down to make an impromptu picnic table.
It comes in black, white and green, complete with a set of hooks for attaching to your bicycle and it costs £64.20.

Simple separates are all very well for creating a retro wardrobe for every day, but the addition of sixties style points like crochet can lift the look to something special. These Daisy Crochet Tops from Oasis use the retro elements with subtlety and chic.
The monochrome colour palette allows a daisy crochet pattern to stand out, creating a visible nod to Mary Quant's mid sixties styling. The capped sleeved top and cardi are both a cutesy pairing for skirts, shorts or pants that have the right balance between girly and grown up style for a Winter mod-inspired look.
Get them from Oasis now at £35 for the top and £40 for the cardi.
Peter pan collars are a classic sixties design point that have stood the test of time, finding their way into designs from blouses to coats. This Peter Pan Crochet Top from Miss Selfridge uses the retro style mixed with further vintage influence to create a great wardrobe staple.
