You can still buy Princess Diana’s favourite Gottex swimsuit

Princess Diana is a style icon in her own right, both when she was alive and in the decades since for numerous generations. Whether it was her cycle shorts and sweater combo after leaving the gym, or gorgeous ball gowns for official engagements, she never got it wrong. Another area that the people’s princess always excelled in was swimwear, where she was known to sport bold colours and bright patterns galore.

In particular, Princess Diana loved a one-piece swimsuit, and always looked super chic and sophisticated while wearing one. And it was brand Gottex she often turned to, particularly if she wanted to sport something vibrant.

For example, many of us will remember the snaps of Diana aboard Mohamed Al Fayed’s yacht in the South of France in 1997, where she wore an eye-catching blue and green number from the brand.

Diana was known to have a personal relationship with Gottex, which was stocked in Harrods where she often frequented. She was not the only royal to love their designs either; Princess Caroline of Monaco and even Queen Elizabeth II are thought to have worn their designs.

The Israel-based brand is available today at online sites such as Simply Beach, and while Diana’s exact green and blue buy is not around, there are plenty of eye-catching one-pieces that are super similar and ideal for shoppers looking to covet the Princess.

For example, these pink options are glorious, with different necklines and the same print.
