Kate was in a new dress by Eponine London for her first engagements of the year.
More from Rebecca English’s story for The Daily Mail:
The EYPU, which opened in April 2011, offers an assessment and treatment programme for parents with personality disorders and their children who, because of the issues affecting their parents, are at risk of being taken into care.
After the Freud Centre visit, Prince William joined the Duchess for an engagement at Child Bereavement UK.
The Duke of Cambridge has been Royal Patron of Child Bereavement UK since 2009, a charity which supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.
The 1-year anniversary of Child Bereavement’s Stratford location was celebrated with a special cake.
Now to what Kate wore for the day’s appointments.
She was in a design by Eponine London. I call it a “coatdress” in the title of the post because that is what it looks like to me. It is difficult to tell without a better sense of the fabric weight; it may well be a dress.
The piece is from the 2016 autumn/winter collection.
As many commenters pointed out, Kate had the dress altered. You can see in the photos there are only four buttons on her garment while the Eponine product shots show five buttons.
This offers a better view of the multiple panels on the bodice; you can see the curving seam that creates the dropped shoulder.
Here you have a closer look at the back of the garment.
More about Eponine from an Emma Spedding story for The Telegraph, quoting the brand’s founder, Jet Shenkman, talking about Kate’s suit.
While she does create a series of outfits you can buy online such as the Duchess of Cambridges’ suit, the main focus for her label is made-to-measure custom pieces. “I like that with each client you get that very individual collaboration. What we do is pretty unique and every woman is given a lot of attention. We take the finished product so seriously, we really do. If it’s not perfect someone has to come back for another fitting,” she says.
She carried her navy suede Muse clutch by Stuart Weitzman.
The Duchess wore her Rupert Sanderson Malory heels.
Kate also had on her sapphire earrings and Cartier watch.
She wore her hair partially pulled back.
