Red Suit Designer has been ID'ed!

On Kate Middleton's visit to St. Andrew's last month, she wore a striking red suit. The designer has remained a mystery up until now! The designer has been identified as the little known Italian label of Luisa Spagnoli. The wool suit was purchased from a the Hollie de Keyser boutique in London.

The label is considered to be a "hidden nugget" in the fashion industry and is known for their classy day wear and knits. It is a family run business that dates back to 1928.

The label is not available in the US but they are currently considering distribution. http://www.luisaspagnoli.it/home_page_eng.htm

Update 9/26/2011

We have learned that the red Luisa Spagnoli suit is now back in production due to an overwhelming demand.
