Queen Máxima was at the Spoorwegmuseum in Utrecht yesterday to attend the Sciencemakers Awards given to young people who have won national or international competitions in science, technology and making/inventing during the past year. For this year’s ceremony, the Dutch queen repeated her muted burgundy melusine felt fedora with relaxed brim, trimmed with a hatband of the same fabric as on her coordinating dress.
There’s a chic effortlessness about this hat, I think that comes from its relaxed shape and slightly fuzzy pile of the felt. On their own, the hat and dress could easily read as one note, boring or flat, but the styling here, with this fantastic necklace, works so well, especially at a less formal event such as this.
Designer: Fabienne Delvigne. It is the “Borsamalia”
Previously Worn: Jan 31, 2019
I’ve warmed to this hat since its first outing. On its own, I’d probably it pass over in a millinery shop but today, it topped a great working royal ensemble. Are any of you warming to it as well?
