For an inaugural lecture at the Prince Claus Chair of the University of Utrecht this afternoon, May 18, Queen Máxima recycled her black and white flower dress by Natan - this time combined with a cardigan, scarf and black stockings:

I love the look!
The scarf works well with the cardigan on but while the cardigan was off, I was not too sure about the scarf.

A beautiful dress, but Queen Máxima is IMO a bit overdressed for the occasion.

Natan undoubtebly. The yellow paint on the top: ....why?

Nice hat though, and it seemed to have been fixed well as it was rather windy today.

If the top was without the paint splash I think this would've been a great look!

It remains a mystery why so many royal ladies find the way to Edouard Vermeulen and his House of Natan. So now and then I find his creations not well-tailored, too wrinkled and lacking raffinement. Of course he has made splendid designs as well, let us not exaggerate.

On itself we can not blame him. After all it are the ladies themselves who come to him. No one says to Queen Máxima, Queen Mathilde or Grand Duchess María Teresa: "Thou Shalt Always Purchase At Natan". They do it, all voluntarily and for mysterious reasons.

The negative side-effect is that the Benelux-ladies start to look like each other. The "surprise" has gone. After all these years it has become "Seen that before" *yawn*. That is why I hoped Queen Máxima would drop Natan and choose another designer, for an example Claes Iversen.

Exactly why all of them prefer Natan?

No idea. It seems his strong point is the broad spectrum: ladies can purchase bags, shoes, gloves, jewels, hats, etc. at his shop. He gives designers of additional accessoires the chance to use his shop to display their items.

On this picture you see the Queen wearing everything from Natan except the hat (which was by Fabienne Delvigne). The dress, the clutch, the wooden necklace and the gloves were all purchased at Natan:

Máxima

Clutch and necklace from Natan

Shoes from Natan

I loved that look on Maxima- everything but IMO, the odd and hideous necklace.
Wow- Mr. Natan's store is fancy! Regal enough for 2 Queens!

I think that the royal ladies wear his clothes because they like them like anything else. I don't think any of them really know a lot about fashion so they don't realize when something is improperly made or looks bad. I think they basically stick with what they know and like.

I am one of the few people (so it seems!) that like most of the Natan outfits Maxima wears and this one is no exception. I really do not mind the yellow floral print on the top half.

I think the reason why Maxima chooses Natan a lot of the time is exactly because of the cut, fit and structure of the clothes and the unusual patterns and colour "splashes" etc that he seems to use so much. His clothes seem unconventional, rather avant-garde and arty which Maxima seems to be drawn to.
For a less subtle reason, maybe because so many people dislike his clothes, the Queens and Grand-duchess can be sure they will be wearing clothes few others will be wearing!
