    Default Rebecca Taylor reissues old-season blue suit after Duchess of Cambridge wears it

    Cashing in on the Kate clones: Rebecca Taylor reissues old-season blue suit after Duchess sparks surge in sales

    The suit that sold out minutes after it was worn by the Duchess of Cambridge in London last Thursday, has been re-released by New York-based designer Rebecca Taylor.
    The tweed jacket and skirt from the resort 2011/12 collection had been on sale at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, but promptly sold out in just half an hour.
    But this morning, the garments were available to buy again on the Rebecca Taylor website - albeit at the original full price.

    Sparking sales: U.S. label Rebecca Taylor has reissued a blue tweed suit after the Duchess of Cambridge was seen wearing an old-season design in London last Thursday


    In addition to the jacket, $450 (available to pre-order), and skirt, $265, the label is also selling a shift dress version of the design, for $425.

    The New Zealand-born, New York-based designer says she was thrilled to learn that the Duchess had chosen to wear one of her creations.


    She told Vogue UK: 'I am a Catherine Middleton freak - ever since she came on the scene I said: "I want to dress that girl". It's a dream come true...'She is a perfect model for our clothes. It fits her so well, it had a grown-up appeal - but it still looks youthful.'


    Back by popular demand: Just days after it was seen on the back of the Duchess of Cambridge, Rebecca Taylor's blue tweed jacket from the resort 2011/12 collection is available to pre-order







    Channeling Kate: The skirt (left) and a shift dress of the same blue tweed design (right) are also now available to women keen to emulate Catherine's look - though they will have to pay the original full price


    Reissuing the design so soon after the Duchess was seen wearing it is a canny business move on the part of Ms Taylor.

    Earlier this month Links of London admitted that it had missed out on around 8.2million in sales by not acting fast enough when Kate wore its topaz earrings for her official engagement photo.
    Caroline Rolfe, Links of London's head of online sales, told theDaily Beast: 'The counterfeiters were a lot cleverer than we were at the time of the wedding.






    Bargain buy: The jacket was on sale on the Neiman Marcus website for $270, reduced from $450, but it sold out just 30 minutes after Catherine was pictured wearing it last week







    Also sold out: The 495 Anya Hindmarch Marano clutch in navy snake carried by the Duchess was, like her suit, no longer available to buy. Fans are invited to join a waiting list for the bag instead



    'We didn't have that much stock so we started to sell out quite quickly... The counterfeiters took advantage of that by saying they had stock and people were duped into buying them.'
    The 495 Anya Hindmarch Marano clutch that was carried by the Duchess last Thursday, completing her look, was also listed as out of stock in the navy snake colourway, though one can join a waiting list to buy it when it is next in stock.




    Fashion hat trick: Last Thursday night Catherine wore a dark grey Amanda Wakeley shift and gold belt (left); Last Wednesday she won praise for her pre-fall 2012 grey Matthew Williamson skirt and peplum top (right)


    The all-blue ensemble was one of a string of fashion hits for the Duchess over a 24-hour period.

    Last Wednesday night she won praise from the style set in a pre-fall 2012 grey Matthew Williamson skirt and peplum-waisted top with turquoise embellishments at the collar and cuffs.
    And the following night she did it again in a dark grey Amanda Wakeley shift and gold belt

    I don't like the grey shift dress very much, but love the other outfits.
