King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia attended the opening of fall session of Riksdag (Swedish Parliament) in Stockholm yesterday. This year’s event was scaled back because of the coronavirus and additional family members did not attend.
Queen Silvia continued the black and white dress code traditional to this event, topping her bouclé with a repeated white straw calot hat. The hat is trimmed with a multi-looped white bow on the side studded with silver sparkles and wrapped in burnt white feathers. While the textured suit may lend itself more naturally to a more wintry hat, this one stands on its own for a warm late summer day, the silver trim picking up faint sparkle in the weave of the bouclé.
Designer: Fabienne Delvigne. It is the “Premier rendez-vous” design.
