It’s one of the most memorable LBDs of all time: Princess Diana, in a pearl choker, walking across a lawn in 1994 in a black off-the-shoulder dress by Greek designer Christina Stambolian.
It became known as one of the best “revenge dresses” of all time, too, but of course, this LBD was just one of many fashion milestones in Princess Diana’s too-short life.
Her legendary style lives on, however, and ASOS’ new collaboration with London-based designer Sharmadean Reid of Wah Nails is the latest nod to the Princess of Wales. The “Wah London x ASOS” line features 18 items based on Lady Di’s most iconic outfits and includes sweaters, suits and, yes, a little black dress with pearly straps, based on the famous number above.
Reid, who founded Wah Nails in 2008, said in an interview with Dazed that she was inspired to do a collection basedon Princess Diana after moving from East to West London.
“I didn’t want to do [a collection with ASOS] 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,” she said.
Items in the collection range from $13 for a princess bracelet to $129 for the black dress. See the full collection, which is on sale now, below:
