The Royal Tour kicked off in a stylish way today as the Duchess of Cambridge selected a medley of international designers for her flight to Canada.
Kate is wearing the Manon dress by French designer Roland Mouret.
The dress features an asymmetric neck with criss-cross straps on the back, a modified empire waist and a partially exposed metal zipper. It is made of a silk/cotton blend, a good weight for this time of year and it is widely available as of this writing. That will not be the case in a matter of hours. Above we show it at My Theresa, below at Neiman Marcus (Originally $1975, now $1382).
Smythe is based in Toronto and designed by Andrea Lenczner and Christie Smythe.
Kate’s bag is the Mulberry Polly Push Lock in Midnight, crafted of what we would call a pebble grain, available at Mulberry for $1300.
