The question is: Do they do her justice? We think so—here's why.
It's Fashion for the People: We tend to respect couture designers like Hedi Slimane when they pay tribute to their heroes (David Bowie very much inspired Slimane's slim Saint Laurent tuxedos)—there's an expectation of quality and design. However, when fast-fashion brands do this, there's some doubt: Did they do this to actually pay tribute to a legend or make money off their legacy? Well, Diana wasn't called the "People's Princess" for nothing. An affordable collection, with a broader customer base, makes sense for the popular royal. Though, if she were alive, she probably would've advocated for more sustainable and ethical fashion.
She Shouldn't Be Forgotten: Every time Diana stepped out, what she was wearing made headlines, kind of like Kate Middleton or even It Girls like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner now. Unfortunately, today's youth may not remember her impact on fashion. This capsule collection is a good reminder of how the princess turned preppy, late ‘80s and early ‘90s style on its head with sophisticated edge—something trendy girls everywhere will appreciate.
