Ageless classic fashion ICON: Princess Diana and her handbags
These handbags are definitely now a worthy investment!
Princess Diana's personal style and taste have long been recognized by the public, and several handbags she wore bear her name despite her death many years ago. Three of the most well-known bags are Chanel's Diana, Dior's Lady Dior, and Gucci's Diana bamboo handle bag. Some of them were even featured in the fourth season of The Crown, a hit drama series that debuted on Netflix.
Chanel - Diana
The Chanel Diana bag is a coveted find among vintage hunters as the late Princess Diana frequently sported it in public, thus its nickname the Diana Bag. This timeless design is similar to the Chanel Classic Flap, but the Diana Bag's flap has a smoother and rounder design. Diana Bag comes in two sizes: 22cm and 25cm, but was discontinued, making it a sought-after item in the Chanel Vintage market.
Dior - Lady Dior
Chouchou was the initial name for the Lady Dior handbag that everyone is now familiar with. In honor of Princess Diana, the handbag was christened Lady Dior in 1995-96. Diana opted for the black Lady Dior, which is easy to pair with a variety of suits, dresses, and even evening gowns. Thanks to Princess Diana's patronage, it also reinforced Lady Dior's famous reputation in the handbag business. Lady Dior bags are now available in a wide range of colors and sizes to fulfill the needs of all women.
Gucci - Diana
The Bamboo bag was developed following World War II, when leather raw materials were scarce. Guccio Gucci, the founder of the Gucci brand, experimented with bamboo bag handles instead of leather bag handles on a whim, starting the famous history of Gucci's "Bamboo Bag."Gucci created the first square tote bag with bamboo handles in 1991, which served as the prototype for today's Diana bag. The Diana bag was also named after Princess Diana, who frequently used the Bamboo Tote Bag in public. Inadvertently, the name is also associated with Diana, the Roman goddess of the moon who is in charge of hunting and nature, lending a romantic touch to the Diana bag.
