  1. Thank you all who liked my hat and thank you Hat Queen Stefanie for featuring it.
    I am always very grateful for clients who are willing to pay for good, classic couture millinery. And yes, I got a few glimpses of the lady and the hat on television, although, due to Covid measures, the ceremony was somewhat thinned out.

    It is nice to see all the new hats in the weekly selection: half of them (the European part) are for Autumn and half of them (the Australian part) are for Spring, but all are colourful!

    I would like to know who made Queen Margarethe’s trilby: it is so very well done, with all the checks on the bias. And Q. M. wears it very well. I also love Queen Elisabeth’s leafy head scarf. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to dive into her scarf collection?

  2. Wow! I really like Queen Margrethe’s fedora! What a chic outfit she’s wearing. She looks phenomenal.

    Nice photos of Rebecca Bettarini. I just realized she changed her name to Victoria. Does anyone understand why? Does that happen when converting to Russian Orthodox? I’m just curious.

    – Such a pretty coral and ivory sinamay hat with pastel feather trim by British milliner Rachel Dunn. I can see this on the Duchess of Cornwall.
    – The herringbone plaited silk abacca on the deep boysenberry beret percher by British milliner Bee Smith would be a lovely Christmas hat. It’s a great style for Zara Tindall or Princess Eugenie.
    – Wies, you knocked it of of the ballpark yet again. What a beautiful sinamay hat! I agree with Catherine that this would be perfect for Princess Benedikte.

    On a side note, I just finished “Philip The Final Portrait” by Gyles Brandreth. A fascinating look at our Iron Duke. I recommend it.

  3. Joining the chorus of admiration for the stunning hat, Wies! Such elegance. Since it was a Prinsjesdag order, I hope you had the satisfaction of seeing it on the lucky wearer.

    Lots of other new designs in the berry tones this week. I especially like the Bee Smith with that herringbone base.

    No wonder Margrethe favors trilbies — she wears them so well, and this is no expectation. And Margareta looks fantastic on this happy occasion.

  4. Really enjoyed this hat, Wies. You are a creative milliner, for certain! I especially like the shape, detail, and colors in this hat. Classic simplicity!
