The Timeless Handbag Legacy of Princess Diana

We would have to say that Princess Diana was our favourite style icon. She was not afraid to break the rules when it came traditional royal standards. This earned her fans around the world and the unofficial title “people’s Princess.” She was a mother and a charity worker, but she took time to develop a unique sense of style. From collaborations with ’90s fashion designers to relaxed vacation looks, to her collection of handbags that complemented every outfit, Diana had cultivated an unmistakable personal style. Diana’s timeless bags ranged from leather totes and satin clutches to beautiful leather totes. Her favorite styles are so well-known that you can easily recreate them today. Scroll down to see Princess Diana’s favorite handbag styles. You will find both the exact options and budget-friendly alternatives.

Diana’s love of the Lady Dior handbag is a fascinating bit of fashion history. The style was originally called the Chouchou, but the brand named it after the princess because she wore it often. It’s safe to say that this was her most used handbag. The Lady Dior bag is available in a variety of colors, sizes and variations. While it may be a bit expensive, we believe it’s worth the investment. There are several other styles that have similar features and silhouettes, but at a lower price.

She carried them often in front of her chest to block cameras. This was not only a smart, multifunctional decision, but her clutches were also stunning. We’ve chosen a few clutches below that are almost identical to those she would wear.
