The English princess Kate Middleton’s fashion icon status has been again refreshed as a coat worn by the sophisticated royal to her recent visit to the 9/11 Memorial and museum in New York has already made it to the sold-out list online.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a double-breasted vibrant cerise pink coat from the UK-based fashion house Mulberry’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection.

Detailed with six elegant horn buttons, symmetrical front pockets and contrasting midnight blue lining, the coat is made using about 83 per cent of wool, 14 per cent of silk and 3 per cent of polyamide materials.

The 32-year-old wife of Prince William has always managed to grab the fashion media spotlight due to her impeccable dressing styles. In 2013, a fuchsia coloured dress donned by the princess while holding the newly-born Prince George in the first official family photograph sold out within two hours.

Created by the UK brand Seraphine Maternity, the short sleeved Jolene frock, which had to go into reproduction to meet the humongous demand, featured a flattering knot front and a deep V-neckline.

Also a royal blue silk wrap number sported by the Duchess during her engagement announcement back in 2010 was also reproduced by UK’s Issa London brand. Last year, the label launched a 40-piece line featuring a replica of the same blue outfit in collaboration with the American clothier Banana Republic.

Kate Middleton’s choice of pretty, feminine maternity wear in 2013 sparked a nationwide trend, according to sales information released by the department store Debenhams. Dubbed as ‘The Duchess Effect’, the trend report saw that the sales of floaty dresses and pretty styles of maternity wear increased by more than 500 per cent.

Founded in England in 1971, Mulberry is known internationally for its leather goods.

With self-owned boutiques in West London, Seraphine sells a variety of maternity swimwear, nursing, jeans, sweaters and other forms of apparel through various stores in the United States.

Established in 2004, Issa London specializes in in-house designed women’s apparel for any occasion and body shape.

Founded in 1978, California-based Banana Republic operates more than 600 stores worldwide. (PB)
