Caption: Demure: the Duchess of Cambridge in LK Bennett's 'Detroit' dress - now sold out Photo: EDDIE MULHOLLAND
Inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge, our middling heels, knee-length frocks and warm coats are leading the vanguard of British fashion
Just the other week, for instance, Kate wore a demure green Hobbs trench for a St Patrick’s Day parade, the latest in the line-up of carefully stylish (but always practical) coats she’s sported by the brand. Inevitably, her emerald “Persephone Trench” is now out of stock, snapped up by a silent but mighty army of conservative dressers.
Meanwhile, LK Bennett’s neat blue “Detroit” frock (remember that American market), spotted on the Duchess last month, has been sighted, variously, on the shadow home secretary, Yvette Cooper, in the Commons, and Channel 5 newsreader Emma Crosby.
The dress, since sold out in many sizes on the store’s website, is currently listed on eBay for as much as £478 (though note: only in Kate’s royal blue, not Yvette’s racier fuchsia). Click link for full post from The Telegraph.
