The Duchess of Cambridge isn’t afraid to wear a piece more than once. However, for her first royal trip to Paris, she splurged on something new.
On Saturday, Kate Middleton gave a sartorial nod to French fashion with a bespoke piece from the famed French fashion house. According to @katemidleton, one of the preeminent duchess fashion stalkers, it’s a custom cotton-tweed coat from the 2017 spring/summer ready-to-wear collection. It reportedly retails for $10,300 (although the price is unconfirmed, and could definitely cost more, considering the personal adjustments).
In addition to the fit-and-flare dress, the Duchess wore a few Chanel accessories. A thin monogram belt of calfskin accentuated her nipped waist and cost $850. Her quilted bag? That’s from the brand’s fall 2015 collection, retailing at $4,200. But there’s more.
A pair of earrings and a necklace from Cartier also made it into the lineup. The earrings were $2,040 and the necklace was $1,890. Adding those in, the royal ensemble already costs upwards of $15,000.
Her Cartier bracelet watch is not new to Middleton’s fashionista fans. In fact, she’s been wearing it since 2014. That stainless steel piece adds another $4,600 to the overall price of the look. For the final cherry on top, the Duchess chose a pair of fringed leather pumps from Tod’s. They, too, are a staple of her wardrobe, having been unveiled last year. As a final component, they added on $665 to the ensemble.
It was quite a look — and fit for her and Prince Williams’s packed day.
After starting off at a venue that supports veterans and victims of terrorist attacks, they made their way to the Musée d’Orsay and the Eiffel Tower.
To close out the evening, Middleton swapped the Chanel look for one she’s worn previously: a red coatdress from the CH Carolina Herrera line. That double-breasted look went for $1,915 when it was in stores.
