The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle just launched her own Smart Works capsule collection. The Duchess of Sussex has designed a line of workwear clothing in collaboration with Jigsaw as well as Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, and her designer friend, Misha Nonoo.
At the launch party, she looked effortlessly chic wearing two of the items from the collection as she opted for a crisp white shirt by designer Misha Nonoo and teamed it up with a pair of black trousers from Jigsaw. She further styled it up with tan pointy heels and opted for a matching belt to he attire.
Meghan further stunned in dainty butterfly earrings and a gold cuff bracelet featuring diamonds and blue stones that were previously worn by her late mother-in-law Princess Diana.
Now, circling back to the collection with Jigsaw, Kate Middleton has previously worked with the clothing brand back in 2006. According to People, ‘She landed the job after she personally contacted Belle Robinson, the brand’s founder and a family friend. She reportedly spent a few days a week in their London office, where she acted just like any other employee.’
Robinson told the Evening Standard in 2008, “She sat in the kitchen at lunchtime and chatted with everyone from the van drivers to the account girls. She wasn’t precious.”
“I have to say I was so impressed by her. There were days when there were TV crews at the end of the drive. We’d say: ‘Listen, do you want to go out the back way?’ And she’d say: ‘To be honest, they’re going to hound us until they’ve got the picture. So why don’t I just go, get the picture done, and then they’ll leave us alone,’” Robinson said.
Kate quit her job at Jigsaw in 2006, saying she needed “some time to herself.”
Looks like Meghan circling back to the same brand is kind of a sweet connection.
