Alexander McQueen announced the dress was a preAW11, but a study of the collection only reveals similar styles and no match. It is universally assumed to be a bespoke piece, and fashion blog What Kate Wore has identified two pieces that seem to have had the most influence on the final product. The double breasted frock coat in navy wool features buttoned epaulettes and a striking stand-up collar. Retail on the original coat: £1,333.
