Princess Diana, dubbed as the People's Princess, was a beloved member of the Bristish royal family. She was a princess, a humanitarian, and a fashion icon in her own right. She was known for her penchant for wearing pleated midi skirts, suits, and gowns that inspired designers for many years. Even at the height of today's athleisure trend, make no mistake: Princess Diana is still as relevant as ever.
Case in point: Virgil Abloh's Spring 2018 collection that pulled inspiration from Princess Diana's iconic looks. Mind you, we're not talking about her ladylike ensembles while on royal duty. This time, we're zooming in on her look circa 1995, a period when she brazenly roamed the streets in oversized logo sweatshirts, white socks, and chunky sneakers paired with bike shorts.
Today, Diana's favorite leisure look gets revamped with a more structured feel. Off-White deems it fresh and modern for bike shorts to be worn with blazers featuring power shoulders (another Princess Diana reference) and skinny stilettos that elevate the whole look.
