KATE-LKBennett250edit2.jpg3. The accessories
What makes Kate great? It's all in the extras.


Aristoc: What, never heard of them? Frankly, neither had we. Turns out they're the Duchess' favourite source for silk stockings - yes, the nude hosiery that she's famous for. While the fashion brand isn't available in Canada, we hear Wolford's transparent sheers are another favourite of her Highness's great gams.

LK Bennett: To call Kate a fan of the brand would be an understatement. HRH made no less than nine repeats of those taupe patent sling-backs during the Canadian tour and she's also been snapped in the London label's black patent wedges, blush bow-trimmed stilettos, red strappy sandals, navy court shoes, and nude platforms, as well as a burgundy coloured coat on a trip to Denmark. We estimate a new fashion trend has been born.

Mulberry: The luxury label has developed a cult-like following for its highly crafted leather bags (the Alexa, named after Alexa Chung, has achieved it-bag status with Brit girls), and Kate has been known to carry several of their classic carryalls and clutches as well as making a recent appearance in Mulberry's emerald peace-sign patterned dress.

Next label to look out for: Tabitha Simmons
A favourite of the fashion set (Simmons started out as a stylist), the Dela lizard pumps Catherine wore in Canada proved a welcome break from the ubiquitous LK Bennetts.
