To attend a Service of Hope for the victims of the recent Westminster terror attack, The Duchess of Cambridge chose her grey patterned Missoni coat.
Catherine wore this first to Battle of the Somme commemorations last summer.
The ‘Long Snake Stitch Coat’ features an A-line silhouette, oversized pockets to the outside. Six buttons to fasten the coat, and a small – perhaps even out of proportion – collar adds a nice detail, but allows the striking pattern to talk.
Beneath, we could see a black dress or skirt, and the ensemble was finished with Gianvito Rossi 105 heels in black, teamed with light denier black tights and with a patent crocodile leather clutch, a piece from the Beulah-Aspinal collaboration of 2015. This was Kate’s first outing of this piece.
It features a blue and white heart-print lining, which Kate actually has in a scarf from Beulah too.
Catherine brought back her lock & Co. cocktail hat; its sits forward on the head, the looped bows standing proud at the rear. She had her hair in a bun, once more with a hairnet.
Finally, I spied the earrings. Initially, I thought it was the Duchess’ new Anita Dongre earrings, but then realised they were too dainty. It is the diamond-pearl drop set borrowed from The Queen. It seems likely this is a long-term loan to her granddaughter-in-law, as Her Majesty already has numerous pairs of this style, one pair of which she wears daily.
