Today, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the SportAid athlete workshop at the GSK Human Performance Lab in Brentford, West London. Catherine has been Patron of SportsAid since 2013, reflecting her support for the charity which is helping the next generation of British sporting talent. SportsAid offers financial and practical assistance to young athletes, helping them fulfill their ambitions and potential.
At the workshop the Duchess met SportsAid athletes as they undertook a number of advanced performance assessments. Some of these young athletes are destined for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games.
After a tour of the world-class facility, the Duchess was invited to undertake two cognitive tests to experience firsthand some of the training done by the athletes.
Kate looked stylish and comfortable in the iris 'Vreeland' dress from Goat Fashion. The plum hued shirt dress is rendered in a light wool crepe and has a fit and flare silhouette. The collared dress features a buttoned bodice and cuffs, a self belt with colour matched buckle, and concealed side zip closure. The dress will set you back £450 and is currently available in limited sizes. It is also on sale at Diani Boutique for US$580 in an 'iron' hue.
This is not the first occasion Kate has worn a piece from the British designer. Previously Kate wore the Goat 'Redgrave’ coat, as well as the ‘Scarlett’ dress.
Today, Kate also wore a new pair of black suede boots, the 'Half N Half Stretch Rider' by Stuart Weitzman from Russell and Bromley. The knee-high boots have a stretch panel on the back and suede on the front, with a low 4 cm stacked block heel.
Stuart Weitzman also offers a few equivalent styles with very subtle differences. They are the Mezzanine, Mezzaluna and Mezzamezza.
Kate paired her suede boots with her black suede Stuart Weitzman 'Muse' clutch.
She completed the outfit with her sapphire and diamond oval drop earrings.
