It’s undeniable that Princess Diana is a style icon (she was wearing bike shorts and sweatshirts long before that became our daily quarantine uniform, just sayin’). She’s donned some pretty incredible outfits through the years—two of which you can now get your hands on thanks to Rowing Blazers’ new fall/winter collection that launched on Thursday. The first is this red sheep-printed red sweater, which some say was a nod to her feeling like an outsider in the royal family because of the lone black sheep on the front.
Rowing Blazers worked directly with the original designers of the item, Joanna Osborne and Sally Muir, to re-release it. And although many copies have been made in the past, the press release states that “this is the first time since 1994 that the original Warm and Wonderful ‘sheep sweater’ will be re-released as an exclusive collaboration.”
And the second is, of course, the “I’m a Luxury” sweater that the late Princess of Wales wore in the ’80s. Again, Rowing Blazers partnered with Gyles Brandreth, the co-creator of the design, to make it available for the first time since the 1990s. The back says “Few Can Afford,” FYI.
Both sweaters are available in men’s and women’s sizing for $295, so, yes, they’re a little pricey, but if you’ve ever wanted to channel your fave royal, this is your chance. (You can also pay in installments with QuadPay on the site if you don’t want to pay it all up front.) The designs are also available from XS-XXXL, although some sizes are already selling out so you gotta jump on this quick. Your fall and winter WFH attire is about to become so much more fancy.
