In April, Banana Republic announced a collaboration with Issa London, the design house that created the royal blue dress Kate Middleton donned to announce her engagement to Prince William back in 2010. Now, the first images of the collection have been released, and one of the dresses is strikingly similar to said engagement dress.
The sapphire blue dress, pictured above right, will retail for $130 - a fraction of the original Issa price tag of $535.
The 40-piece Issa London for Banana Republic collection launches online and in select BR stores on August 8. Prices will range from $39.50 to $150.
