Duchess Kate: beige “Contrast” coat by Katherine Hooker

The Contrast Coat is a long elegant coat with a seam on the waistline and a flared skirt. It is made of a  soft medium weight herringbone beige wool felt trimmed in brown cotton velvet on the top collar, cuff bands, back belt and pocket flaps. It has a long vent which adds to the flare of the skirt and also small belt on the back waist.

The mid-calf length coat had been shortened to above the knee for the first official engagement of Catherine Middleton after her engagement to Prince William. It is by Wiltshire-based designer Katherine Hooker.

I prefer the shorter version of the coat. I think that this really colour suits the Duchess.

I partly like this dress and I partly dislike it. I like the material, the length, the effect it gives when it is worn. But I am not too keen on the print, and it looks a bit old-fashioned when it is worn by the Duchess.

1- Kate wore this dress on 22nd April 2016 for a dinner with Michelle and Barack Obama at the home of the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge in Kensington Palace, London.

This dress looks ethereal due to the material and this is nice. However there is a 70’s look about it that makes it dated.

This dress shows too many colours and it looks too ethnic to my taste. I however like the shape when it is worn by the Duchess.
