The Anya Hindmarch ‘Cleavage Clutches’ of Princess Diana

There were many reasons Princess Diana was well-loved: Only one of which was her iconic sense of style. The late princess was every designer’s ideal muse, and she loved fashion as much as fashion loved her. Whenever she was photographed — regardless of whether it was during royal affairs or just on casual days out — Diana was always sophisticated and classy, just like a true princess.

Aside from her drool-worthy jewels, her staple accessory was a satin evening clutch, often custom made by British luxury designer Anya Hindmarch. According to the designer, Diana would call her purses “cleavage bags,” since she found them handy to hide her cleavage from the cameras whenever she was wearing something a little more daring.

This style trick is quite simple, but says so much about Diana’s modesty. She always exhibited a ladylike aesthetic that made the public love her even more.
