Black and white houndstooth-patterned silk “Austin” shirtdress dress featuring a point collar, concealed buttoned placket, genuine mother-of-pearl buttons and long sleeves with buttoned barrel cuffs. It comes with a patent leather belt at the waist. The dress is lined at the flared skirt. By the American label Ralf Lauren.
The material of this dress is too thin and there is a too high slit at the front to be worn on official duties by a princess in my opinion. Otherwise it is a nice dress.
