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.

Jacquemus’s latest collection was inspired by Diana’s iconic fashion, which was accentuated by dressing multiple models who walked in the show in replicas of Diana’s famous pearl choker, puffball skirts – including Kendall Jenner (pictured)
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.
