Duchess Kate: Emerald pleated printed silk midi dress by Rochas

Emerald pleated printed silk midi dress. The dress with an off-white floral pattern features side slit pockets, button-fastening keyhole at the back and zip fastening along the back. By Rochas.

This dress is interesting in the way the fabric flows when in movement but I find it a bit too dark and a bit too long.

1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore it on 22nd May 2017 to attend the Chelsea Flower Show in London.

Bohemian style “Peony” black all-over red, blue and coral floral pattern viscose dress featuring an off-the-shoulder design, a nipped-in waist and a flowing midi skirt. By Somerset by Alice Temperley.
