If it's been in the back of your mind to one day emulate Princess Diana's prestigious style, checking out the new capsule collection by ASOS is a step in the right direction.
Women's Wear Daily reports that the online retailer has launched a capsule collection in collaboration with Sharmadean Reid, founder of WAH Nails, as a tribute to the late Princess Di.
Before you turn away at the thought of frizzy bouffant 'dos and shoulder pads, the emphasis of the collection is on recreating the upscale looks of the 80s, rather than the decade's more awkward moments.
Reid told Dazed the collection was inspired by both her West London girlfriends and Princess Diana - an idea that came from a back issue of fan-generated magazine WAH Zine.
She said: "One issue, we did a page called 'When Di Was Fly' and myself and Charlotte Roberts from The Mushpit had 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."
She had been repeatedly asked to create a collection but, she explains: "I didn't want to do it until I had an idea, and then I had just moved to West London and I felt like a real West London mum, like 'ah I feel a bit like Princess Diana, dropping the kids off to school' and I thought: that's a good idea for a collection, an East London girl moving to West London."
