As far as fashion tributes go, having a designer create something in your honor ranks pretty high. Dolce & Gabbana is releasing a dress named after Duchess of Cambridge and fashion icon Kate Middleton. And, sigh. It’s really good.
Here’s how it came to be: Middleton wore a version of the Italian fashion house’s Georgette-trimmed midi emerald green dress during a trip to Canada. The design was from the duo’s Fall 2016 collection and originally featured an Alice in Wonderland-esque pocket watch embroidered on the right side of the chest, but the version Middleton wore didn’t have it.
Apparently, Dolce & Gabbana liked hers better, because the brand is rereleasing it minus that embroidery detail and calling it the Middleton Georgette-Trimmed Crepe Midi Dress ($2,675).
Now for a little bit of bad news: The dress is available right now on Net-A-Porter and that price tag is, ahem, considerable. That’s a lot more than the See by Chloe dress or those Zara pants the mother-of-two love so much, right? As with anything Middleton wears, you better act quickly, because the “Kate effect” is in full force.
