King Willem-Alexander celebrated his 54th birthday today in Eindhoven, a southern Dutchcity that brands itself as a hub for high-tech innovation, with a largely digital version of the annual royal walkabout. used the occasion to debut a draped toque hat in a lively green and yellow silk ikat print.
Even with the same use of pattern on the skirt and hat (contrasting on the blouse), it’s a lot of pattern for one ensemble. I think it works better with the yellow coat, which unexpectedly quiets down the overall look. It also works better, photographically, in still, posed shots rather than in-motion (see the lovely bottom two images).
