If you finished the fourth season of The Crown feeling you wanted more and are already eagerly awaiting season five, you’re probably a fan of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, and her personal style . It took Diana a few years to develop her own fashion identity but in her early days as a member of the royal family, she made her mark with her collection of patterned jumpers. In the early 1980s, while attending a polo match with Prince Charles, she famously wore the much-talked-about black-sheep jumper, which is now part of the permanent collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. United States-based brand Rowing Blazers recently made a new version of the infamous jumper, which has already sold out. Royal watchers have interpreted Diana’s penchant for that particular jumper (she rewore it on several occasions) as a subtle statement about her role as the “black sheep” of the royal family. But as these pictures show, the “ugly sweater”, a staple of winter and the holidays, was a favourite of the princess. There’s no better time to get inspired by her quirky jumpers than just ahead of the festive season. Four quirky jumpers fit for the festive season The Polo Bear, Ralph Lauren’s mascot, has become a symbol of preppy style. This crew-neck jumper in lamb’s wool and cashmere (HK$3,900) is embroidered with the cute bear clad in a signature to-the-manor-born outfit. Belgian designer Meryll Rogge was inspired by the 80s club scene in New York for her autumn collection, which includes this chunky jumper with diagonal yellow and pink stripes (HK$5,200). It is cosy and fun in equal measure. Available at Net-a-Porter. We could use some happy vibes right now, and this wool-blend jumper from British designer Stella McCartney (HK$10,100) is certain to bring good cheer with its rainbow pattern and positive message. And finally, one for the boys. Celine’s latest menswear collection, The Dancing Kid, pays homage to e-boys, who post videos on TikTok from their rooms. This jumper (HK$7,653) features a classic snowflake design interspersed with online avatars and computer graphics. Available at Mr Porter.
