UPDATED: Mirabelle Winner, A Weekend of Celebrations for the Cambridges, Resort 2016 Collections & Beulah London

We're back with a fashion-based post looking at Resort 2016 Collections and Spring/Summer styles from brands favoured by the Duchess of Cambridge. We also have an exciting giveaway courtesy of Mirabelle Jewellery! Before all that, however, we have a couple of news stories to share.

It's going to be a very special weekend for the Cambridges with several occasions to celebrate. On Sunday, 21 June, Prince William celebrates his 33rd birthday, and it's also Father's Day and Kate's parents' 35th wedding anniversary. On top of that, Michael Middleton's birthday is on Tuesday.


Last year, the family gathered at Anmer Hall for a private celebration. One imagines they'll do something similar this year - either at Anmer or Bucklebury. William and Kate enjoy low-key family dinners and no doubt the entire group will have fun spending time with George and Charlotte too.

HRH The Duchess of Cambridge / Kensington Royal Twitter Feed

More from People's story:

'And William’s Father’s Day will be twice as special now that he’s a dad of two. There is no word from the palace on how William is celebrating his birthday and Father's Day, beyond that it will be spent "privately."
 His presents are likely to remain a secret, but wife Kate, 33, will surely involve Prince George in the preparations. She talked about the little royal’s budding artistic streak when she revealed that she’s been painting with George, so dad could have a few homemade cards in store for him!' 

Also, the Royal Mint announced they will issue a range of commemorative coins to mark the christening of Princess Charlotte on 5 July. William and Kate will participate in choosing the design of the coins.

Richard Palmer Twitter Feed

For those asking about Kate's next appearance, I understand it will be Princess Charlotte's christening and there's the possibility of a Wimbledon appearance or two shortly after that :)

************

What better way to relax on a Friday evening than with a look at gorgeous designs? Roland Mouret can always be relied upon to excel at creating feminine, sophisticated, elegant designs.

Roland Mouret

For his Resort 2016 offering he focused on draping. "To be the master of draping. You have to be a slave to the fabric." he said. Inspired by Italian women and the way they move the collection has been described as "less fitted, more free". I particularly enjoyed seeing the shades of green used.

Roland Mouret

I'm somewhat surprised we haven't seen the Duchess in more of Mr Mouret's pieces considering the two successfully collaborated on the divine Ella dress Kate wore twice. The gown remains available in limited sizing at Net-A-Porter, and I wouldn't rule out seeing Kate wear it again.


Current styles available from the designer offer a multitude of possibilities for the Duchess, particularly for receptions and black-tie events. Below we see the black and white crepe Lilyvick One-Shoulder Gown, the Gazella Twist-Front Silk Gown, the strapless Calcott Wool-Crepe Gown and the Mirah Fishtail Gown.

Net-A-Porter

A selection of fitted, knee-length dresses would make stylish choices for engagements. The Afyon Dress has carefully placed darts to flatter and streamline your silhouette. We also see the Gabelle LBD, the Sesia Wool-Crepe Dress (currently reduced by 30%) and the Nepa Dress.

Net-A-Porter
************

The king of prints, Erdem Moralıoğlu, didn't disappoint with his Resort 2016 Collection. Inspired by Victorian details such as high collars and white lace bibs, details from the swinging '60's were in there too. He described his inspiration as akin to "the way that certain decades look at other eras, the 1960's looking at Victoriana, or the '70's looking at the '20's".

Erdem

There's plenty of potential in the collection for Kate in terms of floral prints and silhouettes we may see implemented for bespoke coat dresses, day-wear dresses and evening gowns.

Erdem

Spring/Summer pieces from the designer are equally promising. The Evita Printed Dress is a stunning piece featuring red, lilac and pastel-yellow floral print. We also take a look at the Loreen Printed Silk Dress adorned with cream and cobalt blue flowers.

Net-A-Porter

The very pretty Shirlette Embroidered Dress, the Vivi Printed Fit and Flare Dress, the Breeson Lace Shirt Dress and the Floral-Print Dress with Peter Pan collar.

Net-A-Porter

There's some fantastic separates available too. The Signe Layered Cotton-Blend and Lace Sweater looks chic with the Safia Guipure Midi Skirt. We also see the Safia Crocheted Skirt teamed with a sleek black top and the Reesi Frayed Textured Twill Trenchcoat.

Net-A-Porter
The majority of the pieces shown above are currently on sale at Net-A-Porter. The online retailer is holding a significant sale at the moment with reductions up to 50% on an array of Kate's favoured brands.

Net-A-Porter

Beulah London are offering readers Free Shipping on purchases over £150 with the code BeulahLondonTreat. Below we look at some 'very Kate' pieces available at the moment: the Darcey A-Line Coat Dress, the Leieila Box Shift Dress and the Senna Jacket, the Elina Mint Dress and matching Senna Jacket are effortlessly elegant pieces.

Beulah London

The backless Porcelain Gown is a sweeping silk chiffon garment perfect for any red-carpet event.

Beulah London

The code is valid until Tuesday!

Ashley Marie shared a sales tip fans of Kate's Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon Wedges will be pleased to hear. The shoes are currently reduced from $398 to $288 at BlueFly.

Stuart Weitzman

The updated version of Kate's Stuart Weitzman Minx Wedges - the NuMinx Wedges are on sale at Bloomingdales. There's a significant amount of Stuart Weitzman footwear included in the Bloomingdales sale.

Bloomingdales

Also on sale - Kate's popular Mint Velvet Bibi Plimsolls are reduced from £89 to £69.

Next, our friends at Mirabelle Jewellery are giving away a pair of Kate's popular Lolita Earrings to one of our readers. The £30 gold-plated loop earrings are a stylish and affordable addition to any collection. The handmade, fair trade pieces are described as "22 carat on Brass, 4cm long. The hooks are sterling silver gold plated".
Mirabelle Jewellery

Kate debuted the pretty earrings during an engagement in January when she visited foster carers in Islington. They add a touch of glamour to day-time looks as demonstrated by Kate, however, they are also a great accessory on a night out.

Mirabelle Jewellery

Mirabelle's Jewellery is described as: "Hand made designer jewellery, fair trade, unique and unusual jewellery, made with Love and Soul. Mirabelle founder Veronique Henry has travelled extensively throughout her life, gaining a unique perspective in creating and sourcing jewellery.'

The brand has a number of stellar collections available. My own personal favourite is the charming Vintage British Collection. Original British designs from the '50's through to the '70's offered inspiration for the pieces. Below, the £30 Treble Clef Charms, Carriage and Birth Certificate Charm (designed to mark the birth of the royal baby), and the You're My Cup of Tea Charm.

Mirabelle Jewellery

The Flying Bird Pendant with a delicate freshwater pearl on top, the Pegasus Pendant with Amazonite and Pyrite, and the British Sterling Silver Apple Pendant.

Mirabelle Jewellery


Other notable pieces include the Gold-Plated Mini Cross Earrings, the Keepers Ring and the Cladagh Ring.

    with Kate on the Ella dress? Was that a bespoke piece?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello!

      Yes they worked together on it, the gown is based on the Lombard gown and with a few modifications the Ella was created. Here is a quote from Roland Mouret:

      ‘She’s a fantastic person to work with. She’s a woman of her time,’

      ‘She’s very aware of her position and she’s a really nice person. She’s human. It’s really nice to work with someone in her position. It’s…historic, yes.’

  26. I’d wear them with my new brown dress with a gold belt.

  27. I would wear it with my navy lace dress, which I bought because it reminded me of the one Kate wore on her Canada tour.

    I would wear these chic earrings with just about everything! I love gold accessories, so these would be perfect. Specifically, they'd look great with my all-black ensembles/dresses.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Victoria, Oregon20 June 2015 at 19:40

    I loved this post! I realized, looking through all the beautiful selections, that I'm drawn to black and white combos, as that was what I chose for favorites each time. I even popped over to the Net-a-Porter site and browsed (and I'm not a designer shopper). It's amazing to me that there were some things (swimsuits) that, on sale, were the same price as swimsuits you'd find almost anywhere. And you get a designer's name to boot!

    Wow, Kate's probably been busy looking for the perfect gifts for William, her dad, Father's Day, etc. Even if/though she has assistants, it's still up to her to choose the "perfect" things for them, which I think takes a lot of creativity when the gift receiver already has access to almost anything they could want.

  33. Beulah London collection looks like something every woman’s closet should keep. Yes including the blush and powder blue color and the cut according to the person’s shape (something to have). No comment on the aqua evening gown.

    Erdem round 1 recalls some past refreshed, brilliantly.
    Erdem round 2: In a row- the flower dress against black background dress seems to be in style currently. The one in the middle is a nice classic, but the color stands out vibrantly/decent cut. The third reminds me of some movies on Europe of mid-1940s.

    Net a Porter round 1: no comment
    Net a porter round 2 are classic with nice choice of the shoulder details and the knee length is decent. (Something to have)
    Net a Porter round 3: no comment
    Net a porter round 4: The first/mid length and third white lace top, something to have for season changes and totally different occasions (Both something to have). The fourth one is artistic and nice.
    Net a porter last round: No comment

  34. Hi Charlotte: Great post. A quick question from "across the pond." Mothering Sunday (UK) and Mother's Day (US) are held on different dates, but it looks like Father's Day is the same. Is this always the case?

    1. Father's Day in England was the same as in America last year, so I would guess yes it is always the same.

    I entered here, lIke Mirabelle on FB and shared about the contest on my social media. Fingers crossed!

  45. I will wear them with tiered, loose mid or maxi skirt to open air events in the summer (they remind me of part of Olympic symbol). They can be versatile from wearing them with classic dresses to using them to accessorize large dress neck scarfs.

  46. Thanks for this contest! I think those earrings could be worn lots of ways- with a fun off the shoulder top with skinny jeans and heels, with a pencil skirt and top, or with a dress- making sure to always have the hat up or half back to really show the earrings off. They are beautiful!

I'm going to prepare in a few weeks a great garden party with whole family - it's birthday of my mom, of my aunt and 25th wedding anniversary of my aunt and uncle.

  65. wow! June seems to be the Month of Cambridges!
    I love reading your posts as they are adorned with beautiful images of cambridge family. Since I have started following your blog I never felt the need to check other sites. Once my sister called me asking "hey what is the blog you keep checking on every other day to know the latest about Kate." Other sources seems crappy and insufficient to us as you provide complete input from style to substance of this Diva's life.
    If I happen to win these, i am going to wear them with this ethnic kurti, i am planning on to buy for our next get together. t i am sure these gorgeous earrings are going to enhance the evening look.

    A wonderful weekend of celebrations! I hope it was a lovely time for everyone. Happy Birthday to Prince William Happy Anniversary to the Middletons. Father's Day is always a special time, but I'm sure even more so for the Cambridges since it fell on William's birthday. There's so much to celebrate being blessed with a beautiful family and two beautiful children. Wonder what they gave their daddy on his day? Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

    There were so great potential looks for Kate in the fashion pieces above. I really like some of the Mouret pieces and the Beulah Porcelain Gown. Kate would look stunning in the gown! I'm looking forward to seeing what she wears for Charlotte's christening. :)

    Thanks for the update and post Charlotte. Happy Birthday to Mike Middleton too!

    I would love to wear these earrings casually or dressy. I think they would be great either way. Thanks for the giveaway Charlotte.

    Sometime last week Grandma Carole took Prince William to Bucklebury Farm Park near their home in Berkshire. I don't see any security people, but I'm sure they are there somewhere. These photos verify that Grandma and grandson have a close relationship.

    There is a royal special on VOX tonight. First, the Queen movie starring Helen Mirren (20:15 GMT Berlin) and then a new documentary called "Kate - the new Queen" (22:15 GMT Berlin).

  98. In one photo the protection officer walked in front of them. But I do think George is close to both sets of grandparents. Hello had a story that Charles and George planted 2 trees together in Highgrove

    1. Thanks, Joanna! I did notice that after I posted. Only a protection officer would be permitted to stand that close to Carole and George.
