On Monday, Queen Margrethe visited the Queen’s Holiday Village in Grenaa to celebrate its 25th anniversary. For the occasion, which saw the unveiling of a mosaiac in her likeness by artist Mads Hjorth, she repeated a beige hat. A sort of stylised fedora, the rounded and sloping sides of the crown of this piece abruptly end in a squared off top. While from a closeup view the hat seems all right, from a distance the shape is clunky and awkward. Paired with a beige suit, the ensemble is very bland and makes me yearn for Margrethe’s usual approach to colour (lots of it, from head to toe).
The mosaiac of Her Majesty is wonderful but the hat… not so much.
