On Joseph’s about page, they say the brand “modernised women.”  The company was founded in the late sixties by hairdresser Joseph Ettedgui, who created a boutique that was “more magazine than clothes shop.”

Today, under the the creative direction of Louise Trotter, Joseph presents a high contemporary ready-to-wear collection with a strong core of luxury essentials.

If you’d like to recreate Kate’s effortless, stylish look you can do so with Joseph’s “Matt Silk Lynne Dress” in biscuit.

The dress comes with a coordinating belt and gold-tone clasp. Unlined silk and a single knife pleat lend luxurious fluidity to this long-sleeve, shift-style dress. While skin-baring vents create contemporary femininity contrasting with tailored, button-down cuffs – with seam concealed side zip.

At the time of writing, the dress is on sale at Joseph for £175 reduced from £425.

Pair with a pair of coordinating nude pumps.
