The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have today visited South Yorkshire to officially open McLaren Automotives new Composites Technology, as well as a stop at Centrepoint in Barnsley. The Duchess’ outfit was almost completely recycled, except for a new navy handbag which added a updated twist to this outfit.
The Duchess wore her blue coat dress from Eponine London. This is a made-to-order outfit and is part of the Autumn Winter 2016 Collection; we first saw this in January 2017.
The dress coat has a very vintage feel, quite 1930’s/1940’s. The coat features a cut out collar, bracelet length sleeves, a fitted belted waist and slightly flared skirt to a knee length. The single breasted dress coat showcases tailored panel details that move over the shoulders and down through the bodice. The skirt has pleated folds throughout to give a feminine movement to the dress coat as the wearer walks. The matching fabric belt has a round buckle and silver toned hardware. The dress coat is a style favoured by the Duchess and suits her very well.
A very demure look for the Duchess. You can view the Eponine London Autumn Winter 2016 Collection here.
As seen in 2017:
Catherine carried a new bag today. A Smythson ‘Panama’ bag, retailing for £450. The navy cross-grained leather purse has an optional shoulder strap that the Duchess did not use. Kate carried the bag more like a clutch, and at first we thought it was a new clutch until the slightly larger size showed it to be a cross-body style of bag. The Panama bag has a front flap with magnetic closure, two internal open compartments and one zip compartment to the rear. The front of the bag is embossed with gold foiled metallic branding and has tonal stitching around the edging.
The Duchess wore her Rupert Sanderson ‘Malory High Heel Pumps,’ retailing for £475. These pumps are crafted from a vibrant navy suede and feature Rupert Sanderson’s signature raised rounded toe vamp and gold foil stiletto heel. The heel has a height of 100mm, ending in a camel toe cap. These heels are a past season and it has been a while since we have seen the Duchess wear them. The Malory comes in a range of colours and materials.

The Duchess wore her modified version of Diana’s sapphire and diamond earrings. A large blue sapphire is surrounded by smaller diamonds. Kate has modified the earrings from a stud to a drop with a singular diamond connected to the top portion of the earring, acting as a new anchor stud. Try these as a replikate here.
