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.
Monsoon no longer stocks them.
UPDATE MARCH 2018 – Monsoon has re-released the wedges with a new style name, EVA. They appear to be identical in design, except for a slight tweak to the colour. They now come in nude instead of taupe. Click here to shop.
If it’s the original taupe colour you’re looking for, the best place to try is eBay.
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.
