GIANVITO-ROSSI-PUMPS

TOUR FASHION - BERLIN, GERMANY (day three of the poland & germany tour)

The Duchess wore a Catherine Walker design for her Poland departure and the first half of her Germany engagements. It features several components of Walker styles previously worn by the Duchess. Underneath, it appears Kate wore a blue lace dress with a scalloped hem. Of course Kate didn’t select blue by chance - the blue cornflower is one of the national flowers of Germany. For accessories, the Duchess chose her trusty Gianvito Rossi Praline pumps, a cornflower blue Jimmy Choo clutch, and sweet diamond accent jewelry.

The Duchess picked out an outfit in another subdued colour for today’s commemorations.
She chose another piece from her go-to coat-dress designer, Catherine Walker. This coat-dress features an elegant and structured silhouette—very typical of the designer—along with flower detailing from the bottom up.
The ‘Melrose’ coat-dress is described as “A delicate dusty pink Venetian wool coatdress with hand applique taupe corded lace spreading up from the hem and cuff.”
I get many questions about the coat-dress. This is the sort of garment that only requires a slip dress or a lightweight dress underneath, as it’s not like a typical coat one would remove. Kate usually picks these out for various types of services such as today’s, where a little bit more sophistication and formality is required compared to her everyday engagements.
Beneath the Remembrance Poppy pin, Kate wore a brooch that she borrowed from the Queen for the first time. This one features pearls and diamonds set in the shape of a leaf.
Kate wore Princess Diana’s Collingwood Pearl and Diamond earrings for the second time. You may remember she wore them to the Spanish State Banquet this year.
She also had on a new headpiece, most likely by Jane Taylor.
Kate carried her satin pink Prada clutch.
On her feet her were some new Gianvito Rossi pumps. These ones are almost identical to her well-worn 105 style, but they have a shorter heel. They are the 'Suede Gianvito Heels’ in praline ($675) and have a 3.5 inch heel rather than a 4.5 inch (with thanks to HeavenlyLM on Twitter for spotting this).
I liked the flower detailing on the coat-dress. Flowers can serve as a symbol of hope and peace, and many of you will know that the poppy—the first flower to grow back on the WWI battlefields—is used to remember those who died in the First World War.
