Queen Máxima Opens Joure Community School

Queen Máxima was in Joure today to open the new Community School, a collaborative project that includes primary schools, a childcare organization, social welfare supports and a center for the arts. For this opening, Queen Máxima unearthed a wonderful hat we haven’t seen since 2006! In black felt, this hat features a lengthwise crease down the center of the crown, a wide brim that is slightly turned up on the side and a slim spray of black feathers. It is a fantastic hat on Máxima that paired exceptionally well with her graphic dress; I am so so glad she decided to bring it back into circulation. What do you think of this chic hat?

Designer: Fabienne Delvigne

  1. I do like it better than the “donut hats,” but then she looks very sophisticated and put together no matter what hat she wears.

  2. I can see that many people will like it – it’s a proper, dashing, well-made hat – but it just doesn’t appeal to me. Too much cowboy vibe in the essential shape.

  3. Not a fav of mine at all – the feathers seem not to belong on this hat or maybe they just are too long. I also don’t really like this style with more of a day dress like she has on. I think it would look better with a more ‘hip’ look in apre ski wear bumming around a resort.

  4. I like this hat, and I am so very glad it is not one of those bandage things with holes in the center……..time for some real hats. I also think it is fur as this hat looks similar to one I have and the cost was cost to a grand……even the shape looks the same without whiskers though, mine has a soft black veil around the top crown….anyhow she looks very chic and great for the day out. Must be warm over there……

  5. Not my favorite hat ever on Maxima, but it’s so much better than any of those faux turban wrap headpieces she seems to favor. It also looks like it’s a fur felt, not wool. Ultimately I give it 2 thumbs up!

  6. From certain angles it looked like there were cat whiskers on the hat. Not a fan of the wispy feather thing, although the hat itself is okay. HM looked lovely, and very happy.
