The Duchess of Cambridge stunned in a beautiful pale green bespoke Jenny Packham coat as she attended a symposium this morning at the Royal Society of Medicine in London; for more info on the visit, go to The Crown Chronicles.
The bespoke Jenny Packham coat is what we would call a mint – almost spearmint – colour. The coat features seamed front panels, side welt flap pockets, a rounded collar, three gold edged buttons on each cuff, top stitched edge and falls to the knee. The stand out feature on this coat is the small necktie that sits just under the collar tied in a trimmed bow, adding a touch of feminine elegance to this coat.
Moving into spring the colour of the coat is right on trend and Kate looks like a breath of fresh air. The Duchess is not new to wearing green, having various shades of green dresses, coats and even heels (remember St Patrick’s Day?). However, this is the first time we have seen her wear a pale green/mint colour, and it seems to have been a little divisive on social media.
Stylist Note – a welt pocket is a set in pocket with the opening cut into the garment. Some are faux welt pockets that appear to be a pocket but are stitched shut and you can not use this pocket. Some faux welt pockets can actually be picked open to have access to the pocket, others do not have the pocket attached at all.
Catherine wore a slightly paler green Jenny Packham shift dress under her coat. Identical to the blue Jenny Packham dress Kate wore with her blue and white trimmed coat that we saw when she launched the nurses campaign – you can see the same ruching at the waist.Embed from Getty Images
We show some Jenny Packham designs in mint from the Ready to Wear SS14 Cruise Collection and Wonder by Jenny Packham Bridesmaid.
Kate wore her Gianvito Rossi ’85’ Praline suede pumps, retailing for £495. These darker nude coloured pointed-toe court heels are a slightly lower heel height than Catherine’s other Gianvito Rossi heels; she also owns the Praline pumps in the ‘105’ heel height, which are 10.5cm tall.
She carried Loeffler ‘Randall’ Tab Blush Lizard-Effect Leather Clutch retailing for £128, unfortunately currently sold out. This blush coloured rectangular flap clutch features a lizard-effect pattern throughout and a gold hardware tab closure. A perfect size clutch bag for all your essentials. She has previously carried this when she attended Royal Ascot in 2017. You can purchase the clutch in a blush metallic colour here, you can get an amazing replikate of this clutch for only £32 here and another for £25 here.
For accessories, she went with with her Kiki McDonough, Classic green amethyst and diamond cushion drop earrings, retailing for £1,166.67. You can purchase these earrings here.
This is the second gorgeous bespoke Jenny Packham coat that Kate has worn in as many weeks. We are really loving these ultra feminine vintage style coats and hope that Packham will release a collection of coats in her next Autumn/Winter Collection. Here we show the bespoke Jenny Packham coats side by side. What are your thoughts on these gorgeous coats?
