Queen Sonja of Norway and Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands joined up to attend the opening of a new exhibit at the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam (some of you may remember they also did this in Munich back in May). There appeared to be some behind the scenes fashion coordination as both women turned up in bumper hats in bright berry colours.
Princess Beatrix wore dark raspberry bumper hat with domed crown and tightly upfolded double brim, trimmed with large straw bow loops at the back. It’s a hat shape we’ve seen on her a hundred times yet stands out thanks to the warm and vibrant hue. Queen Sonja’s mangenta domed hat, clearly made to coordinate with her paisley suit, follows a more compact bumper shape. The ensemble sets off her pearls wonderfully but the amount of coordinated pink paisley has tipped over the edge here for me.
