It is a brocade fabric coat by Birgen et Mikkelsen with a subtle gold paisley trimmed with champagne colour net. It is long sleeved with a single breasted, off-centre, three button fastening. It also has two flap pockets. The lining is a soft grey colour.
Kate wore it both before and after her wedding. I like the colour and the fabric of the coat however it looks a little bit too big on the Duchess.
