In 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) visited Yukon in Canada.
She looked chic in a casual grey wrap coat with ribbed sleeves by Canadian brand Sentaler.
About the Sentaler coat:
The grey wrap-around coat features Sentaler’s signature ribbed sleeve design. It is crafted from a mixture of alpaca and sheep’s wool.
It features two slit pockets at the front and ties at the waist with a belt.
Sentaler decided to rename the coat after the Duchess wore it during the Canadian tour. It’s now called the “Kate coat”.
