One millinery closet we have yet to peek into during our inventory series is the one belonging to Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden. We’re going to remedy that today with a look at all the red designs in Princess Victoria’s wardrobe. Surprisingly, there are just three for us to view- here they are in the order they were introduced:
Designer: unknown ( I suspect Britta von Koenigsegg); Fabienne Delvigne
First Worn: May 20, 2003; November 19, 2005
Princess Victoria does not wear hats to most regular engagements but even so- the amount of state functions she has attended over the years as a full-time, working royal leaves me surprised at this small group. Even more interesting is the 12 year gap between #2 and #3. I’m truly astounded have not been repeated- they are both classically styled pieces that, paired with the right ensembles, could work without looking dated today. The draped hatband on #1 is an especially lovely detail.
We’re going to have to delve further into the other hues of hats in Princess Victoria’s wardrobe to see if this trend continues- I have a hunch we’re going to be surprised by how few hats she actually has. In the meantime, what do you think of these red designs?
