Queen Margrethe officially opened the new North Wing at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen yesterday. For this event, she wore a new ensemble and hat in denim blue. Covered in the same finely woven wool as her jacket, the hat features a low-profile rounded crown and moderate sidesweeping brim. The hatband and side bow are in the same checked tweed as this ensemble’s skirt.
It’s a great shape, proportion and colour on Margrethe, and I particularly like how the hat is designed to be worn at a jaunty angle. It is beautifully executed (no stitch or pucker to be found) and while I usually prefer hats in different materials to the clothing they are paired with, this look feels more coordinated and less overly matched, I think, thanks to the two fairly muted fabrics. Jump over to this gallery for some better photos and views of this design.
Designer: Mathilde Thoe Førster
Previously Worn: this hat is new
Mathilde Thoe Førster started making hats for Queen Margrethe last year and has produced some beautiful pieces. Most milliners don’t provide behind-the-scenes peeks at royal hats, and I greatly appreciate that she does! What do you think of this addition to Queen Margrethe’s millinery wardrobe?
