#PFW: VIRGIL ABLOH PAYS HOMAGE TO PRINCESS DIANA WITH ‘OFF-WHITE’

Virgil Abloh, Kanye West’s closest collaborator, took a streetwear twist on Princess Diana’s iconic looks and still make it his own. It’s been 20 years since Diana died in a car crash and, like a few other designers this season, Abloh had been inspired by the barrage of commemorative photos of her that have surfaced in recent months. In an era where the personas and wardrobes of public figures are tightly managed, Abloh was inspired by the free manner in which Diana experimented with her image in the Eighties and Nineties.

Abloh also partnered with Jimmy Choo, a designer Diana patronised, on a collection of Cinderella-inspired shoes, including knee-high stiletto boots wrapped in black tulle and pointed-toe pumps encased in plastic to look like glass.

Here are our best looks from the tulle infused collection, you can view the full collection in our Gallery
