LONDON Diana, Princess of Wales, was perhaps best known for her philanthropy and her tumultuous marriage to Prince Charles.

But, the beloved princess was also a fashion icon whose signature style influenced a generation of women.

In the ultimate tribute, ASOS has launched a collection inspired by the Princess of Wales’ most iconic outfits, her favourite prints and her love of pearls.

Naturally, the collection features some ’90s-inspired cocktail dresses; a favourite of the princess.

The collection also features a nod to Princess Diana’s more casual “sloaney” style, which favoured oversized candy-striped shirts.

In an interview with Dazed, designer Sharmadean Reid said that Princess Diana’s fondness for “streetwear” and preppy clothing was a source of inspiration.

“[We] found all these images of Princess Diana in streetwear she always loved bomber jackets, she actually dressed quite American preppy, she even wore Harvard jumpers” Reid told Dazed.
