King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of The Netherlands began their inauguration tour with a visit to the provinces of Groningen and Drenthe (they are visiting every province in Holland over the next month). Máxima repeated the interesting metallic pillbox hat she wore in April 2011 while on a state visit to Germany.
This is the most interesting hat as it appears to be entirely covered in either metal snaps or washers. The effect and texture that is created is quite striking and truly unique. With matching metallic trim on her dress and coat (and another lovely chignon), this edgy metallic element lifts the ensemble from boring beige to eye-catching.
Designer: Jan Taminau
