Princess Beatrix as at the Hermitage Amsterdam yesterday to officially open an exhibition on Spanish Masters. For this engagement, she wore a silver threaded lavender straw hat with flat crown and double upturned brim.
The photo below shows the hat’s simple trim- a wide band of metallic woven straw wrapped around the brim and knotted on the side. The knot is such a great alternative to a bow or spray of feathers, providing that little bit of extra ‘something’ to the piece. The colour of this piece is so pretty on Princess Beatrix and looks wonderfully luxurious paired with her wrap.
Designer: I suspect Suzanne Moulijn
Previously Worn: uncertain
I can’t find any previous outings of this hat- do any of you remember seeing it before?
