In May 2017, Kate wore the wedges again, for a children’s garden party at Buckingham Palace.
About the Monsoon Fleur Espadrille wedge:
The espadrilles feature a suede effect upper and a rope wedge heel. This is how Monsoon describes them:
“A versatile choice for warm weather looks, our Fleur espadrille wedges are crafted with almond toes and gripped soles that ensure a comfortable stride. Wear this pair with everything from dresses to off-duty denim”
Where to buy the Monsoon Fleur wedges:
Sadly, the wedges are from a past season. However, Monsoon has re-released the shoe in two new colours for 2017. The Fleur wedges now come in Taupe and Navy Blue. At the time of writing (May 26th, 2017) the shoes remain in stock, in most sizes. Click here to shop.
Kate Middleton and Monsoon:
Monsoon is a British high street brand, but not one Kate has ever worn publicly (at least since getting married to Prince William. I suspect she might have worn one or two pieces by the company in her younger days).
Monsoon is a company known for its beautiful fabrics, intricate prints and high impact colours. In the early days of the company, Monsoon sourced products from India, Afghanistan and East Asia. Today, the team’s talented designers still gather inspiration and ideas from around the world to create their signature “Boho” look.
