How the Most Extreme Street Style Star Is Dressing for Digital Fashion Week

Men’s fashion month has become almost completely digital.

Princess Anne new ‘style icon’ after royal used as ‘muse’ in Italian fashion collection | Royal | News

Princess Anne’s “effortless, nonchalant style” has become the focus of fascination for fashion designers, according to commentators.

Royally Obsessed podcast hosts Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito discussed the new unexpected “style icon”.

Ms Bowie told listeners: “My high this week has been the revelation that Princess Anne is a muse for the Serafini fashion house.

“We know that obviously, Diana is a style icon, but so is Anne.

“She’s all over the Pre-Fall 2021 mood board for this Italian fashion house called ‘Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini’, which I’m unfamiliar with.

“The collection even nods to Anne’s equestrian days, what she wore to Royal Ascot in the 80s, some of her evening wear.”
