481267Introducing the Catherine dress from our Little Black Dress Collection.

Inspired by icons and designed for today's fashionista, the Little Black Dress Collection fuses the LBD classic heritage together with contemporary features, modern fabrics and unexpected detailing. When designing each dress for our own-label collection, we take inspiration from the glittering moments of fashion heroes past and present and are on a constant search for those of the future. The Duchess of Cambridge has become something of a style icon since the 2011 Royal Wedding. The ladies of the Royal family are often scrutinised, much like her husband’s mother and national treasure, Princess Diana. But the public’s beady eye is constantly trained on every ensemble Kate Middleton is seen sporting at the events she attends, with pieces she has worn immediately going out of stock in the shops after she has been photographed in them. Women of the world desperately rush to emanate her style, which can only be described as feminine, elegant and timeless. Known for her support of luxury British designers such as Jenny Packham, Alice Temperley and Alexander McQueen (the designer behind the iconic wedding dress), this 33 year old Princess knows a thing or two about dressing. This was no different when we were selecting the dress that would inspire our Catherine dress, as one of the most prominent pieces she has worn was the black Temperley Lace gown to the premiere of War Horse in 2012, and then again in 2013! This is something which separates Kate from not only any other royal lady, but also any other celebrity. Most celebs would consider it a crime to re-wear such a statement piece, but Kate has been known to recycle her favourite gowns, oblivious to opposing opinion. She has got both day and evening wear covered, with easy and simple midi dresses for day, followed by continuously stunning gowns for glamorous red carpet events by night. Affordability is another key word in Kate’s wardrobe, as alongside the designer labels she has also been spotted in pieces from classic women’s clothing brands such as Oasis, Joseph, Reiss, Whistles and Zara. It’s easy to have style if you focus on clean lines, classic cuts and basic prints! We like that she advocates this ethos, which is why the Catherine dress can be worn again and again to events in the social calendar, thanks to it’s classic design, inspired by the Duchess. The all over black lace is pretty and refined, while the slimline shape and maxi length create a beautiful silhouette. Worn with a black pair of court shoes and a statement black clutch bag, you would be a dark and mysterious vision in lace that Kate would be proud of.
