Hello-Hello, we are back with a quick look at what Kate wore when out doing some shopping last week. The Duchess spent some time at a London Lululemon store last Wednesday according to The Daily Mail. Many readers are no doubt familiar with the brand, but if not, here is how the company describes itself: “Lululemon makes technical athletic clothes for yoga, running, working out, and most other sweaty pursuits.” The fashion industry refers to the look as athleisure, a segment of the industry experiencing explosive growth.
In the new picture, the Duchess wore her black Honeycomb sweater by Temperley London, notable because of the distinctive honeycomb pattern on the sleeves and neck; it is a piece first noted in March of 2013 (although it is tough to distinguish the sweater beneath Kate’s LK Bennett ‘Darwin’ jacket). Kate has the Honeycomb in black and ivory, it is a design she enjoys wearing. If interested in a little bit of the backstory on the Honeycomb motif at Temperley, click here.
Atop the sweater Kate wore another Temperley piece, the brand’s ‘Leather And Shearling Contrast Gilet’ (or vest), in suede and leather. This is also an older piece, originally worn in 2012. It is quite similar in design and materials to the Temperley Odele coat Kate was started wearing in the fall of 2012.
The Duchess is wearing a pair of leggings or track pants
but it’s not possible to definitively discern from the photo precisely what brand that Ashley Marie suggests are by Gap and it looks like she is correct. Several WKW Facebook friends noted they are the same style worn by Kate when she was walking George in his pram in 2014 (photos here). She is wearing Asics trainers/sneakers, a brand of running shoe she is fond of. And she carried a Lulumemon reusable tote, this style appears similar to the tote Kate was carrying.
Kate was wearing her Annoushka Pearls and Kiki McDonough Hoops as well.
People did a story about the bag today.
The bag, which can retail for up to $1,665, is a reincarnation of a style favorited by another famous royal. Back in the ’90s, her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, frequently toted around an earlier version of the D-Bag.
The story also references Kate’s G-Bag from Tod’s, you see Kate carrying it below, at a 2010 polo match.
