WHAT'S NEW IN KATE'S CLOSET
The addition of Saloni to Kate's repertoire of designers is perhaps a nod to the Cambridge's upcoming royal tour of India in 2016. I suspect Kate is doing her research on designers connected to the subcontinent. Here are some other pieces from Saloni's collection which I think echo Kate's style and perhaps we will see on the tour.
