Markle & Middleton: in Alexander McQueen they trust

Alexander McQuuen might just be the official go-to brand for the new generation of British Royalty, as long as you consider Megan Markle and Kate Middleton the two versions of what a princess should look like today -they are.

 From Markle’s androgynous powerful trouser suit -a nod to Saint Laurent’s Le Smoking- to Kate Middleton’s grecian chic gown Alexander McQueen speaks volumes in diplomatic dressing and the renowned British fashion house is the label in favour for regal style circa 2017. Markle’s protocol in style is “not straight-up patriotic. They appeal to something broader – not to geographical borders, but to of-the-moment concepts” notes The Guardian.
“As an actor, from Los Angeles, she didn’t grow up steeped in the traditions of the monarchy. She has fresh eyes on diplomatic dressing. Her approach feels comparatively unconventional, even unpredictable, as a result… Her clothes speak to something very different from the royal’s usual flag-waving smartness: they appeal to universal markers of decency among the godless liberal elite”.

The eco-chic and social conscious style of Markle -“she wore a black coat by the British designer most closely associated with that movement, Stella McCartney, with a pair of jeans by sustainable Welsh brand Hiut denim and a handbag by a brand, DeMellier London, that trades on being “socially conscious” notes Hannah Marriott– combined with the posh yet friendly elegance of Kate Middleton in her latest Scandinavian tour are the best way to sell Britain today with style and class.
