Eighties fashion icon where they exist, anything the Princess of Wales wore became a headline. How can you forget your wedding dress with a train of more than 7 meters and huge puffed sleeves or that black dress with bare shoulders that ended up auctioning for $ 6 million? Undoubtedly the most emblematic of her wardrobe were the blouses and dresses that highlighted the shoulders in an exaggerated way, with shoulder pads and sleeves with a lot of volume, and if they had polka dots much better.
Today that “T” shape is back more fashionable than ever thanks, to a certain extent, to the French designer Simon Jaquemus and this blouse from his Les Santons de Provence collection that has become a favorite of bloggers and influencers, As reported by the magazine S Moda.
The princess wore this polka dot dress with bulky sleeves and fitted at the waist at the Ascot horse races exactly 29 years ago and the similarities to the Jacquemus design are undeniable.
"My name is Simon, I love white, blue, Marseille and the 80s," says the French designer who already has celebrities like Rihanna and Solange among his fans on his website.
Jacquemus grew up on a farm in southern France and, according to an interview with Elle magazine, cites designer Jean Paul Gaultier as one of his inspirations, but there is no doubt that the style of the princess and her bedside designers, Bruce Oldfield and Victor Edelstein have had some impact on their understanding of fashion and trendsetters love it!
