Designer recreates Kate’s blue engagement dress for $130
Duchess Kate's famous engagement dress — that royal blue number that matched her 18-carat sapphire ring so well — can be yours.
The Banana Republic Issa London Collection dress is available for just $130.
The famous frock's designer, Issa London, has teamed up with Gap's Banana Republic to create a capsule collection full of colorful dresses, tops and accessories, including a recreation of Kate's blue dress — for just $130.
"The Issa wrap dress became a global icon following the engagement announcement," said Simon Kneen, Banana Republic's creative director and executive vice president of design, to TODAY.com in a statement. "We knew our customers would be thrilled to experience royal fashion at a Banana Republic price point!"
The collection includes numerous wrap dresses one could easily imagine on the duchess, who has been spotted numerous times in Issa couture, as well as a number of preppy, patterned separates.
