The second day of the Dutch state visit to Indonesia continued yesterday with Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X and Her Highness Radu Hemas welcoming King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima to Kraton Palace in Yogyakarta. For this visit, and a stop at a community development project, Queen Máxima repeated her picture hat with upswept ‘slice’ brim in muted leaf green straw.
Later in the day, the royal couple visited the Prambanan Temple. For this, Queen Máxima changed into her textured, natural straw hat with wide cartwheel pleated brim trimmed witha flat, multi-looped bow in caramel satin.
The pleats on either side of the brim significantly alter its shape and, together with the roughly woven straw, make the look of the hat decidedly less formal. It gives this design interest, and while it’s not my favourite millinery shape in Máxima’s hat closet, it’s nice to see something out of the ordinary.
