Kate looked very elegant in the houndstooth check coat, which suited the occasion perfectly.

The Duchess appears to favour the print, she wore a Ralph Lauren houndstooth check dress recently too.

About the Reiss Rubik Houndstooth coat:

The Reiss Rubik Houndstooth coat is a “wrap” style coat with a large funnel collar.  Reiss call this a “high collar”.  Kate wears it up, but the website model is styled with it down (see below).  It appears the coat can be worn either way.

The black and white check coat retails for £365 / $620.  Reiss describe the coat as being slim fit, long in length, having a concealed button front and a self-tie belt (which Kate removed).  According to Reiss, the coat works for “both day and evening looks.”

Harrods also sold the coat (it is now out of stock).  Here’s how they described the piece:

Monochrome is all over the catwalks again this season so tap into the trend with this black and white Rubik coat by English label Reiss. Styled in a striking houndstooth print, it features an asymmetric stand collar, belted waist and a streamlined tailored silhouette.
