Yesterday, King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima’s tour of Australia took them to Queensland. For their day in Brisbane, Queen Máxima repeated a ruched black silk calot hat. While photos yesterday don’t offer great detail of this hat (see it at its inaugural outing here), it’s a small piece that is far less boring than you might imagine, thanks to interesting textural movement from the beautifully draped fabric. With Máxima’s striking black and white Claes Iversen wrap dress, the hat makes for a well balanced ensemble.
The royal couple is off for the weekend and we’ll pick up their tour in New Zealand on Monday. Until then, what do you think of this hat? And, which hat has been part of your favourite ensemble this week iin Australia?
