Kate Middleton fans in the UK are probably going ape shit right now, because one of the Duchess' favorite designers, Jenny Packman, has announced that she'll be doing a cheaper collection exclusively for Debenhams. The line will be called No.1 Jenny Packham, and will retail between £85 to £160 (or, $135 to $254). It debuts in April, so if you're planning a springtime getaway to London or elsewhere, here's another excuse to go shopping.
The line will be hitting 72 Debenhams locations (and then another 56 after that), so if you didn't realize just how many Debenhams exist overseas, here you go. The Daily Mail adds that the collection will be composed of 19 dresses (wraps, maxis, even prom) in soft metallics, florals, and graphic prints, and that there will also be accessories and childrenswear. Throw on a pair of L.K. Bennett sandals and you're good to go.
