Diana’s fashion sense never went out of style and now her distinctive look has inspired a new generation of designers and their Autumn Winter 2023 collections.
This is particularly true at French brand Jacquemus, whose new collection pays homage to Diana through a modern lens.
A series of models in the Jacquemus wore replicas of Diana’s famous pearl choker, puffball skirts and Mary-Jane pumps.
Diana’s ability to match tailored blazers with athleisure, tartan on many occasions and oversized ruffles, has been echoed by other designers across the new season.
As Elizabeth Debicki is set to portray Diana in the next series of The Crown her royal fashion sense has once again been brought back to the front row.
Printed and bold blazers were as big in Princess Diana’s wardrobe as they are now in Kate Middleton’s.
In November 1987, for example, she wore an Alistair Blair jacket for a trip to Munich.
Chocheng have mirrored the statement piece, from the striking monochrome pattern to the contrasting velvet lapel.
The styling of these casual separates at Valentino gave a nod to Diana’s ’90s power combo of jeans and a crisp white shirt.
When visiting Bosnia in 1997 Diana turned to her go-to approach of laid-back luxe wardrobe essentials. The look seems just as timeless on the catwalk more than a decade later.
Come autumn, Diana would turn to her collection of stylish outerwear.
When visiting Wales in October 1987, for exampe, she belted her trench coat tight for a neat silhouette.
At Alexander McQueen this trench is equally as tailored and could have easily been spotted in Diana’s wardrobe.
Checks were big back in the ’80s, and Diana wore them with aplomb. At Akris they doubled up with this checked trouser suit for all over print as Diana did when she wore Glen Plaid to the Burghley Horse Trials in September 1989.
Diana made a bold choice on a trip to Wales in 1992, dressing in red tartan tailoring.
Mirroring her look, Antonio Marras created a look that combined the same structured blazer and slim pencil skirt for a royal take on the skirt suit.
Bold, structured blazers were a mainstay in Diana’s wardrobe, especially in the 90s.
The slightly mannish style with shoulder pads has come full circle. At the Altuzarra show, the colours and oversized silhouette were the same but presented as part of a complete blue ensemble.
Diana’s silky navy Dior slip dress, which was one of John Galliano’s first creations for the house, is one of her most memorable looks.
She she wore it to the Met Gala in 1996.
Zimmermann has chosen similar intricate lace and a navy colour scheme for this red carpet gown – showing that underwear can still be worn as outerwear.
