La Redoute has launched a collection with Kate’s favourite French designer

The Duchess of Cambridge has worn so many fabulous outfits over the years, it’s too hard to pick a favourite. However, one particular outfit that would definitely be up there would be her red and green floral midi dress from Vanessa Seward, which she wore back in 2017. However, the £720 price tag made it a touch difficult to emulate her classic style, until now.

Yes, the French designer has teamed up with retail giant La Redoute to create a budget-friendly collection of blouses, dresses and boiler suits, all with that same signature Vanessa Seward style that Kate loves. With prices starting at just £24 thanks to La Redoute’s current 60 per cent off sale, it’s now ridiculously easy to copy the Duchess’ favourite looks but for a fraction of the price.

Printed Round-Neck Blouse with Short Sleeves, £42, La Redoute

From pussybow blouses to flouncy dresses, ditzy prints, seventies-inspired denim and slogan sweatshirts, every piece in the collection is swoonworthy. There’s also a selection of well-cut blazers and a classic beige trench coat – a staple in any French woman’s wardrobe.

Browsing the collection is like a lesson in Parisian cool-girl style – effortless pretty basics elevated with feminine details such as ruffles and flippy hemlines balanced out with sharp tailoring and toughened up with a dash of leather and hard-working denim. If you’re looking to inject a bit of royally-approved Parisian style to your spring outfits, this Vanessa Seward collection is a one-stop shop of sartorial hits.

We particularly love the black long sleeve buttoned midi dress with tiny heart print detailing and tie waist, as it’s totally reminiscent of Kate’s 2017 Vanessa Seward dress.

To help you find the best pieces, we’ve rounded up our favourite picks from the new La Redoute x Vanessa Seward collection below.
