Duchess Kate: dusky pink wool coat by Joseph

Double-breasted dusky pink wool coat with side pockets, oversized collar, front on-seam pockets and tab detailing on the cuffs. It is by Joseph.


I like the design and colour of this coat. I think that the length is also nice. The buttons were moved during her pregnancy with George to give her more comfort, it is a pity that we can still see the indentation made by the buttons and they also seem slightly unaligned.

1- Kate Middleton was seen with this coat on 19th March 2007 while walking in London.


2- Kate was seen wearing it again on 31st January 2008 at the occasion of her mother Carole’s 53d birthday dinner in London.


3- Once a Duchess Kate wore it on 15th March 2013 to attend the Cheltenham races.

This dress by Roland Mouret is beautiful, his clothes are just divine and I love the jacket, very classy with the twist of the cutaway at the back. Kate wore the jacket with other items, it will therefore be part of another post!

1- The Duchess wore the Mouret dress on 30th June 2011 at Heathrow Airport in London on departure for an official trip to Canada.

This is a luxurious coat with a very feminine touch with the ruffled hem. I however prefer the classic look of the trench coat with the masculine side of it.

1- Kate wore it on 8th March 2011 during a surprise visit to Belfast with Prince William prior to their wedding.
