King Willem-Alexander and were in the Dutch region of Neder-Betuwe yesterday where they visited Opheusden and Culemborg city halls, a tree farm, and a fruit auction/distribution center. For this day away, Queen Máxima wore a new hat, one of her signature wide brimmed ‘slice’ designs with high upsweep in deep, magenta straw.
First up- the colour is divine. This is Máxima’s 26th version of this hat style (17th in straw) and she wears the jewel tone SO WELL. I’ve said all I can say about the scale and shape (still SO GOOD) which leaves me quibbling about the finishing. The fantastic Mode Maxima Koningen blog post on this hat includes some great back views which show brim binding that is a little lumpy and, appears to be pieced (see seams at both 4 and 6 o’clock positions), something that should not happen on a couture hat.
Designer: Fabienne Delvigne
Previously Worn: This hat is new
What do you think about Queen Máxima’s new hat yesterday? I haven’t even mentioned the styling- I’ve warmed up to it in the past 24 hours because the neutral skirt and blouse make the hat stand out as the ensemble’s centerpiece!
