About the L.K. Bennett Ami coat:
The Ami coat is from L.K. Bennett’s autumn/winter 2011 collection. The company described the piece as a “structured, military-style, fashion coat” that is defined by “beautiful detailing, a modern belt and a clean fitted silhouette.”
The coat is crafted from a tightly woven wool mix fabric and is fully lined. Although long sold out now, you could originally buy the coat in three colours, toffee, black and burgundy. Kate owned the burgundy (deep red) colour.
The coat originally retailed at £345 ($240 approx), before going on sale at £145 ($100 approx).
