The Duchess of Cambridge's favourite British label LK Bennett arrives in New York
00:21 GMT, 10 March 2012
Manhattan's royal fashion followers will soon be able to tap into the Duchess of Cambridge's style and add some of her favourite pieces to their wardrobes.
British label LK Bennett is due to open a brand new store in the city's Columbus Circle neighbourhood this summer.
Adored by well-heeled UK office workers – and, of course, Catherine – the mid-price label has already opened stores in Atlanta, Chicago and Houston.

The Duchess is a big fan of the label, which is known in the UK for its understated sophistication and is frequently spotted wearing their nude pumps and black wedges.
Most recently she wore a fitted, jade green peplum jacket and matching skirt by the store on an official tour with the Queen to celebrate the monarch's Diamond Jubilee.

Savvy U.S. shoppers have been snapping up some of the store's offerings at Nordstrom.
They will now be able to enjoy the full spectrum of LK Bennett's designs, from clothes to shoes and handbags.

The rest of the U.S. shouldn't have to wait too long before they get a piece of the action, either.
Robert Bensoussan, LK Bennett's executive chairman, recently said that he predicts further expansion.
'We think we could go to 20 stores in the US very quickly,' he told the Financial Times.
The Duchess's endorsement of a fashion line is worth millions.
Mr Bensoussan said that the company has seen a 17 per cent increase in sales in the last year.
And, more tellingly, he revealed that online sales have improved an impressive 100 per cent year on year.
Due, no doubt, in part to Kate's overseas fans clamouring to dress just like their royal style icon.
