Duchess of Cambridge fave Issa London teams with Banana Republic

Kate Middleton famously wore a blue Issa London wrap dress to announce her engagement to Prince William. That was in 2010.

Fast-forward and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and her prince just took home a brand-new baby boy, destined, mostly likely, to rule Britain one day.

And Issa is prepared to invade the U.S. (and other parts of the world) thanks to a capsule collection with Banana Republic that is destined to hit select stores and online retail on Aug. 8.


The collection includes nearly 40 pieces of women’s apparel and accessories inspired by Banana Republic’s safari roots and exotic travel, combined wih Issa’s figure-flattering, modern silhouettes. Key elements include exotic animal prints infused with neutral and jewel tones. Accessories include statement jewelry and leather goods, priced from $39.50 to $150, while garments are priced $69.50 to $150.

This should make it easy to dress like a (future) queen.
