Kate Middleton owns the Reiss Rubik Houndstooth Coat.
The then-Duchess debuted the coat during a visit to the charity Action on Addiction in Warminster, Wiltshire. (Read more about that visit here). Kate looked very elegant in the garment, which suited the occasion perfectly.
Kate also wore the coat in December 2015, during a Christmas shopping session in London.
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 described 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. Simply layer it over sharply tailored separates for a clean, classic look.
