In September 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) debuted a new green dress by Dolce & Gabbana for a visit to Kelowna, a city in the Okanagan Valley as part of the Royal Visit to Canada. She visited the University of British Columbia and sampled food and drink at the ‘Taste of British Columbia’ festival.
About the green Dolce & Gabbana dress:
Kate is wearing a bespoke version of the Italian label’s ‘Pocket watch-applique’ midi dress. (Kate’s dress does not feature the pocket watch embellishment, otherwise it is identical).
The bottle green coloured dress features a self-fastening neck tie, gold buttons and a nipped in waist. It is midi length and cut in a fit and flare silhouette with ruffled detailing on the sleeves. It’s made from stretch crepe.
A look at the back of the dress:
Here’s how the green dress is described at MatchesFashion.com where it retails for $3,545 USD / £2,150 GBP
“Dolce & Gabbana is inspired by the magical world of fairy tales for AW16. [The dress is] playfully embroidered with a pocket watch motif in reference to ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ … Wear it with sparkly heels and a ladylike tote for an enchanting evening look.”
It can also be purchased for the same price at MyTheresa.com
