The Duchess of Cambridge was out in London today at Mercer Hall, to attend The Royal Foundation’s ‘Mental Health in Education’ Conference, an area that the Duchess is a fierce advocate for. Kate once again pulled out an amazingly glamorous ensemble, giving us chic boucle tweed and her signature perfect Chelsea blow dry.
The Duchess choose a black, white and light blue boucle tweed skirt suit from Dolce and Gabbana. The frayed edge boucle tweed jacket featured a v-neckline with peak lapel collar, double-breasted jewelled buttons of a black stone with a crystal halo and horizontal flap pockets along each hip. The matching frayed boucle tweed a-line flared mini skirt finishes above the knee and the fabric is cut on the bias which could be a key in identifying the piece. The actual skirt suit and collection it comes from is still a mystery at present.
Dolce and Gabbana have also seen some controversy in recent days over what many claim to be racist editorial images and comments forcing the Italian duo to cancel their China Fashion Show; this has caused some to wonder why The Duchess choose this label considering the sensitive issue.
Kate carried her Mulberry ‘Bayswater Clutch’ in black. The black suede front flap clutch features a metallic turn lock with logo engraved plaque. This clutch is no longer available to purchase and is now about four or five years old.
Catherine wore her Tod’s black suede block heels, with signature pebbled traction grip sole. Both the pumps and clutch are some of Kate’s frequently used accessories. These pumps are unfortunately sold out. Try these heels as a nice replikate, purchase here.
The Duchess accessorised with her Kiki McDonough ‘Kiki Classic Morganite and Diamond Cushion Drop Earrings’, retailing for £2,833. These very feminine earrings are crafted from 18ct white gold pave diamond studs with cushion cut morganites drops. You can purchase the Duchess’ earrings here.
We absolutely adored this look on Kate and thinks she looks super slick and polished.
