Luxury handbag label Anya Hindmarch is put up for sale after £28.2m losses in latest sign of struggles for Kate Middleton's high street favourites following collapse of LK Bennett
    The handbag firm's Qatari owners have abandoned the London-based brand
    It made heavy losses in 2017 and reported a 10 per cent decline in its revenue
    Kate has often carried its clutch bags, including when she met the Obamas 
Anya Hindmarch, a luxury handbag brand favoured by Kate Middleton, has been put up for sale after losing £28.2million.
The brand, founded by fashion designer Hindmarch in 1987, made heavy losses in 2017 and reported a 10 per cent decline in revenue, at £37.2million.
A source close to the firm said the decision to sell was a mutual one between Ms Hindmarch and the Qataris.
The Qatari royal family's investment fund had bought a £27million controlling stake in the firm in 2012.   
Fashion brand Orla Kiely, another favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge, also went out of business with debts of more than £7.25m (€8.1m) last year.

Designer Duchess! Kate wows in a £790 Gucci pussy bow blouse as she visits a children's centre in London - but teams it with £130 trousers from Jigsaw

It’s pretty dumb to spend that much money on a blouse that she could’ve gotten from the high street. She’s just as dumb like the other one with wearing expensive clothes that doesn’t do anything for her.

She is aging at a rapid rate. Her skeletal appearance is so noticeable and her head looks huge compared to the rest of her body. I can't imagine what she is going to look like in 10 years.

I truly believe that Kate relishes her good image generated by comparisons to Markle.  I also believe that much to her dismay she is 1) recycling a lot of clothes to keep up that new "she's not a spender image" and 2) having to work a bit more.  The pants today were good; the dress with its new demure/conservative sleeves is still yucky.

I don't think she likes working much. And it would be a blow to her ego to have the people who overpraise her just do it to trash MEghan. Not very flattering. The same people most likely previously called her "waity" or doolittle.

I don't think she recycles much really and is not thrifty by any means.  Kate dresses rather blah.

I don't think she has a good image with everyone. People can have long memories.

Daring Duchess! Kate put her own stamp on her £790 Gucci blouse by wearing it BACKWARDS for a visit to a London children's centre
* Duchess of Cambridge, 37, wore a pussy bow Gucci blouse in London yesterday
* The £790 designer piece features delicate buttons down the back
* But Kate put her own spin on the look by wearing the blouse back to front

The purple silk-crepe pussy-bow shirt has a row of small buttons down the back, according to Net-a-Porter. But Kate noticeably put hers on with the buttons at the front.

The switch meant the seams on the shoulders and buttons on the cuffs didn’t fall exactly as they should – and the bow was pulled round her neck and fastened looser and lower.

Whether this was by accident or design wasn’t clear – and Kensington Palace weren’t commenting.

Dummy put the blouse on backwards making it I’ll fi and odd as the buttons on the sleeves are to the front. Poor thing’s so lacking in sense that she couldn’t figure out that her highly expensive blouse was on wrong.  bored3

How is anyone suppose to put that thing on with all those buttons in the back unless they have someone button it for them?

The devil's in the Duchess' details! Did Kate really make subtle alterations to an old Alexander McQueen dress at gala event or was she wearing a VERY similar version? (as eagle-eyed fans claim the flower placement gives it away)
* Duchess of Cambridge donned a stunning Alexander McQueen gown last night
* Featured the same delicate floral pattern as the one she wore to the 2017 BAFTAs
* However the off-shoulder Bardot neckline was replaced with capped sleeves
* Eagle-eyed fans questioned whether the entire top had been replaced
* Others speculated Kate had ordered an almost identical version of the dress  eating cookies

 bored3 imo, it’s an ugly dress that she most likely did order an identical version as she has no clue about how to spend money on a decent wardrobe.

What's the point of paying $$$$ for a dress that looks similar to one already in the closet?

I wonder if it's because a sign of status - that she can get the brand to make multiple versions.

Alternatively, she could be doing it to be seen as 'thrifty' - which is hilarious as even to have the bodice altered in the same fabric would have been eyewateringly expensive.

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Duchess of Cambridge drafts in former Vogue editor as her secret weapon in battle to stay stylish
The Duchess of Cambridge has secretly drafted in a talented stylist who has been advising her on her wardrobe.

Out go the stiff coat dresses and Home Counties lady look. In comes a more modern, sleek style, such as the £800 Gucci pussy-bow blouse and wide-legged trousers she wore for an engagement earlier this month.

‘Ginnie is Catherine’s secret weapon,’ a royal source tells me. ‘She has made a big difference to the Duchess’s wardrobe for public engagements and has helped give her a whole new sense of confidence.

Natasha Archer, who usually helps Kate with her wardrobe, is presently on maternity leave. 

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6866705/EDEN-CONFIDENTIAL-Duchess-Cambridge-drafts-former-Vogue-editor-secret-weapon.html

Maybe Natasha quit.
The choice in clothes has gotten better but the cost of the blouse she wore backwards is too much. Waity seems more animated now but still very lightweight when it comes to work and any impact she has.
