The second day of the Dutch state visit to Luxembourg unfolded today with visits to an area of historic industrial buildings undergoing revitalization, a space mining university initiative, Castle Vianden and the Chamber of Commerce.
These events saw Queen Máxima in a new outfit and bandeau headpiece of overlapping gold flowers.
There’s no two ways around this- it’s an interesting look. The business and development theme of today’s events fit well with a pant suit but these linen culottes, ruffled blouse and silk jacket lack harmony, despite their unified colour. I actually like the headpiece combined with the blouse and shoes but the silk and linen piece are so far apart in terms of formality and polish that the ensemble ends up a cacophony of clashes with a bottom ready for the beach and a jacket ready for the opera. A gold headpiece was never going to bring the look together.
Designer: I join the suspicion of my esteemed colleague Josine Droogendijk at the Queen Maxima Fashion blog that it is from Argentinian jewelry brand Celedonio
Previously Worn: this headpiece is new
I don’t know what else to say about this one. Thoughts?
