King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima arrived in Jakarta, Indonesia yesterday for a four-day state visit.
The visit officially kicked off today with a welcome at the Bogor Presidential Palace in West Java by President Joko Widodo and his wife Iriana and visits to a Dutch cemetery and Pipiltin chocolate factory. For this program of events, Queen Máxima wore a new calot hat formed from overlapping crescent shapes made of textured golden brown straw.
The Dutch queen wears warm neutral shades so well and this hat’s hue pairs well with her printed silk georgette dress. It’s the shape that I’m not sure works- from some angles, it close-fitting scale and shape take on a helmet vibe and I wonder if the flowing lines of the dress might work better with a brimmed hat.
Designer: unconfirmed. Fabienne Delvigne has made several similar shaped designs. Dress by Natan
Previously Worn: This hat is new
