On their final evening in Stockholm, William and Kate attended an event at the Fotografiska Gallery, which at night boasts glittering views over the city. The event was a celebration of contemporary culture with guests representing the worlds of music, film, television, theatre, tech, dance, art and sport, with live music, drinks and canapés.
The Duchess opted for another floral patterned Erdem dress tonight, not dissimilar to the gown she wore for the black tie dinner hosted by the British ambassador yesterday evening, only this one is a midi length and made from blue velvet.
The 'Christina' dress (£2,690) is a runway piece, shown as part of the designer's A/W 2017 collection. Crafted from a medium weight silk-blend velvet-devoré, it features a mock neckline with banded waist, long bell sleeves, and a fluted godet hemline.
Kate, the sartorial diplomat, arrived at the venue wearing a new black coat by Swedish fashion designer Ida Sjöstedt. The couturier, who has long been a favorite for Swedish Royals, graduated from London’s University of Westminster in the year 2000, and set up her own label in Stockholm the following year. The piece Kate wore is the 'Antonia' coat from the A/W 2018 Collection.
Kate accessorised the coat with her Troy London faux fur collar and faux fur cuffs first seen yesterday.
On her feet were the Gianvito Rossi 'Mila' Black Suede Ankle Strap D'Orsay Pumps, previously worn on tour in Paris and Poland.
Kate completed her evening look with a pair of glittering statement earrings.
They are the Robinson Pelham Aspen earrings from the jeweler’s Oxygen collection. The £4,900 hoop earrings are set with white diamonds in 18ct gold.
