It’s that time of year again. King Carl Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria, and Prince Daniel attended both the church service and the opening of the Swedish Parliament for the 2021 and 2022 work year. It’s a smaller royal crowd this year, as to be expected with the remaining pandemic concerns. However, we did get the contemporary black and white take on Swedish court dress, and it’s terrific this year.
We don’t have a lot of designer identification on the Queen’s outfit, but her hat is definitely Kerstin Carlefalk. Once again the talented folks at UFOnomore have a rundown on the elements that can be identified. The whole is very chic, though, very pulled together.
The Crown Princess is wearing some repeats as well. I particularly like the black midi skirt, which is by Dagmar. I know we have been tiring of her recent run of printed, froofy dresses, and this is a nice antidote. A soothing combination of black and white to usher in fall and political business.
