Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, makes an Orla Kiely coat sell out

Kate Middleton in an Orla Kiely coat

Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, and Angel of Death to All Clothes, has been at it again: wearing clothes, and then prompting a complete shopping frenzy, as people all rush to buy exactly the same thing and look exactly like her. Clothes must shiver when they see her coming, no?

This time, Kate’s purchase sounded the death-knell for this brown Orla Kiely coat, which, according to the brand, sold out within minutes of the the Duchess’s appearance at Rose Hill Primary School in Oxford. For those who’re interested, Kate paired her coat with brown  suede Aquatalia ankle boots, which she has – gasp! – been seen in before. We’ve no idea what she wore under the coat, though: whatever it was, it is presumably still available: for now…

    I do love her taste in coats, but I’m not going to rush out to buy something just because she’s wearing it.

    I really do love these coat-dresses she wears, but I’ve got to admit that I would be a little unsure if I could pull one off myself. What does one wear underneath? It doesn’t look like it buttons all the way down, so is it a pullover? How do you take it off without looking ridiculous- or are you supposed to wear it all day long, and not just outside?

    I really like how she looks here and I wouldn’t mind owning this coat (not to look exactly like her but just cause I like how the coat looks itself). Maybe people are buying clothes she wears cause she has good style and not just to look like her clones? 🙂

      The link is automatically generated by affiliate softaware, I’m afraid, so I can’t do anything about that: as I said, the coat is sold out, so it wouldn’t have been able to link to it…
