Canadian Coat Kate Wore On Royal Tour Sells Out
As each and every one of Kate Middleton’s outfit is scrutinized around the world during the week long Royal Tour of British Columbia and Yukon, at least one Canadian designer got the ‘Kate Effect.’
On her last day in Whitehorse, Yukon this week, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a grey alpaca wrap coat by Toronto designer, Bojana Sentaler and within hours of the picture flooding media sites, the coat was sold out.
Sentaler coats are made of Peruvian alpaca which is coveted for it’s extreme lightweight yet warm fibres. The style Kate wore is called the Ribbed Sleeve Wrap Coat and retails for $1195 CDN.
The brand, which has been around since 2009, is sold at Holt Renfrew, The Hudson’s Bay and select Nordstrom stores in Canada. Other bold faced names that have previously worn Sentaler coats include actress Kim Cattrall and the wife of Canada’s Prime Minister, Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau.
But those still wishing to purchase the coat, can do so on the brand’s website, sentaler.com but be prepared to wait for a few months before delivery because there is a backlog on orders for that particular grey coat.
