When the Duchess of Cambridge boarded the royal train for a feel-good holiday blitz covering stops in Scotland, England and Wales — everyone was prepared for Kate to dress to impress. The future Queen consort is always on the right track when it comes to her style choices. And for the Cambridges railroad adventure — the busy mom of three packed her best winter weather coats, festive tartan skirts and scarves as well as tall high heel Ralph Lauren suede boots circa Christmas 2018. But perhaps the style standout of the tour was Kate’s new Roma bag by Métier.

Crafted in Italy from supple suede with a curved front flap the twisting gold lock bag in a camel-y color was the ideal choice to complement an all navy military-esque ensemble. The earthy chain bag helped to soften Kate’s austere long tailored coat and dark pants. Offering a bit of modern luxe — the handcrafted shoulder bag has an accordion silhouette containing a trio of compartments and multiple card slots to help with organization.

Kate’s Marrakech suede bag was also seen in the HBO series The Undoing with Nicole Kiman’s character Grace Fraser carrying the decadent shoulder bag.

As the Duchess of Cambridge is conscientious of turning the style spotlight on British brands — the Roma is a perfect choice for showing off the classic craftsmanship found on the high streets of London. The elegant bag also represents Kate’s love of modern and timeless pieces with an eye on architectural elements and artisanal methodology. Each Métier piece takes on average 20 hours to make and construct — the durable bags are made with strong threads commonly used for designing shoes to give their leather panels more reinforcement and sustainability.
Kate carried the brand’s Métier Roma Small Tan Suede Shoulder Bag. The bag features a removable carry chain handle along with back slip pocket which provides easy access to a cell phone, while a custom-forged chain handle and adjustable strap—both removable—offer versatile styling options.
