Queen Máxima was in Utrecht yesterday to take part in the jubilee congress of the National Institute for Budget Information. For this event, she repeated her blocked black felt teardrop percher with deep crease, trimmed with a black quill with jewelled beads.
The hat’s unusual shape and beautiful sheen give it memorability on its own but its the combination with the beaded magenta frock that makes it sing. The two pieces are so well balanced and contrasted, they both are elevated by the presence of the other. I’m not sure I’d be drawn to this hat on its own but as part of this ensemble, it’s marvelous.
