Duchess Kate: “Davina” dress and “Jude” jacket by L.K. Bennett

The “Jude” jacket by L.K. Bennett beautifully tailored with a nipped waist, this teal wool jacket features kick-pleat detailing at the back and uses a soft wool feeling luxe to the touch.
The “Davina” dress by L.K. Bennett is beautifully tailored in a luxurious crepe. Elegantly designed, it’s chic, gentle ruching down one side adds to the already feminine silhouette. The asymmetrically cut neckline gives this dress a modern edge, while the capped sleeves are kept simple to ensure understated glamour and chic.
