Queen Máxima was in Haarlem on Tuesday to open a new wing of the Teylers Museum.
For this engagement, she wore a new hat in deep aubergine felt with a rounded crown and wide brim. The design is simply trimmed with a wide Petersham ribbon hatband.
The cherry red outfit works so well with the dark hat, the colours providing great contrast in a much more interesting palate than, say, red and black (Queen Margrethe has a red and aubergine hat that we’ve widely admired for the same reason!). I’m less sure about the shape of the brim on its raised side- a smoother shape would give a much more refined look to the design. Between the large hat, ruffled collar, earrings and loose hair, there’s a lot going on here. The last time we saw this coat with a hat, it was this brimless one, which I think paired better with the statement collar.
Designer: likely Fabienne Delvigne
