King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima continued their state visit to France today with a meeting with the mayor of Paris, a look at sustainable transportation, meetings with business and economic initiatives, a symposium on peace and security and a visit to Le Carillon, the café targeted in recent attacks on Paris. For this busy programme, Queen Máxima repeated the brown mohair calot hat we first saw her wear last fall.
I have reservations on this piece. The first time we saw it, I questioned its material. Today, I question its pairing with this Natan coat. The calot shape works so well for Máxima (her hairstyle is showing it off to perfection today) but the mix of textures in this ensemble simply don’t work and I’m left wishing she had left the coat at home.
