King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium continued their inauguration tour of their home country with a visit to Liege today.
Mathilde wore another new hat by Belgian designer Fabienne Delvigne who describes it as “a beige velvet felt borsalino like hat“. You may remember the Italian milliner Borsalino from our history on fedoras– he is credited with the first fedora in 1857, which became his trademark hat. This fedora has a slightly relaxed brim and heightened crown which makes it look more casual.
While I like the folded bow, made from the same velvet felt as the hat, this hat just isn’t speaking to me. Or maybe, what’s speaking too loudly is Mathilde’s coat. I can’t get the image of Big Bird out of my mind.
Designer: Fabienne Delvigne
