The famous frock's designer, Issa London, has teamed up with Banana Republic to create a capsule collection full of colorful dresses, tops and accessories, including a recreation of Kate's blue dress — for just $130.

“The Issa wrap dress became a global icon following the engagement announcement,” Simon Kneen, Banana Republic’s creative director and executive vice president of design, told TODAY.com in a statement.

“We knew our customers would be thrilled to experience royal fashion at a Banana Republic price point!”

The collection includes numerous wrap dresses one could easily imagine on the duchess, who has been spotted numerous times in Issa couture, as well as a number of preppy, patterned separates.
