The Duchess of Cambridge headed to Evelina children’s hospital today, to attend an art workshop organised by another of her patronages, the National Portrait Gallery. Kate repeated a gorgeous boucle skirt suit.
Catherine chose her Dolce & Gabbana black boucle suit for the occasion. The jacket features a frayed edge, peaked lapel and flap pockets at the hip, which add an almost peplum-look to the piece. The buttons are wonderful: square halo stones, which glint black, but in some lights are more blue, in a set of three doubles. The skirt is, of course, in the same boucle fabric, in a flared a-line shape, with hem finishing mid-thigh on the Duchess.
We saw this piece last February for the Royal Foundation’s mental health and education conference.
A closer look at those buttons, where you can see the blue tone coming through.
The Duchess wore her Gianvito Rossi ‘Piper’ heels, which have become a particular favourite in recent months. Costing £520, they feature a block 85mm heel and pointed toe. These are an excellent match from H&M.
Kate added her Mappin & Webb ‘Empress’ earrings and necklace, pieces we haven’t seen for a while. The earrings feature 0.88ct of diamonds, while the necklace is around 0.4ct. Both are still available here and here.
We didn’t see a bag today, unusually! But the Duchess had her hair in a half-up style, with curls.
What did you think of this look? We love this almost-Chanel suit look on Kate.
