"NATURAL WOMAN"

All the references to Princess Diana inside Off-White Women's SS18 collection NATURAL WOMAN

At the Salle Wagram Theater in Paris, Virgil Abloh staged his homage to princess Diana Spencer.

Off-White's designer, fascinated by how human evolution emerges from her style, brings back, 20 years after his death, the beloved princess to the people, fashionastas people, ready to buy every garments of this SS18 collection. One by one, the models bring back  to life the most beloved woman's looks: the Versace pink suit; the laced gloves worn at the America's Cup Ball in 1986; shorts and sneakers that Diana chose to jog; total denim; the blusa a pois; the little black dress from June 1994 and many others. 

Two months ago, Virgil unveils the muse behind the forty looks of the Woman's SS18 collection, NATURAL WOMAN, via his Instagram and, from that moment on, we've all been in suspense - and the announcement of a collaboration with Jimmy Choo for the footwear event has only increased the curiosity on the collection.

The result is a powerful yet delicate collection in which Abloh does not dare, but brings a touch of contemporary and street vibes to the style of a woman that has become an icon, like Marilyn and Naomi Campbell - leaving everyone with breathless when closing the parade - choosing to celebrate the life of an extraordinary woman through the medium of fashion.
