With 'Værket' in Slagelse

Monday, February 1st

Crown Princess Mary attended the networking group session with Værket, herein Slagelse.


It was a warmhearted and smiling Crown Princess, who arrived to Slagelse yesterday, to see for herself how the new project Værket of the Mary Foundation and Danish Red Cross is working. She was warmly welcomed at the arrival by CEO of Danish Red Cross Hanne Line Jakobsen. Along with the CEO of Danish Red Cross and the rest of the networking group, the Crown Princess participated in several activities. These were great entertainment for all of them. I believe they all had a wonderful time together including the Crown Princess.
Værket offer group session's for adults, who feel social isolated or live in solitude. Studies have shown that more and more Danes live a life in solitude and feel socially isolated. As Chairwoman of the Mary Foundation, the Crown Princess has made it her life's work to try to make a difference -help those who need it. Both the Mary Foundation and Danish Red Cross have experience with what solitude and social isolation can do to people, especially those who have no one to turn to. The project helps strengthen relationship's and rebuild self-esteem. Solitude is hard to talk about, but talking about the problems have been proven to make things better. In the 90s the Crown Princess lost her beloved mother and experienced the feeling of solitude for a short time. She used her own experience to express sympathy.

Mary was dressed in a cozy beige coat when she arrived to Slagelse to attend a meeting with the networking group Værket. Since the beginning of 2016 I think we have seen a very mature and modern dressed Crown Princess. A classy look with a splash of colours. After having seen the first pictures from her appearance on Monday, I am sure this new beige coat is a By Malene Birger design. I corresponded with Kate and she confirmed my ideas. The double breasted coat, very similar to the one Princess Marie wore at the opening of the parliament in 2011, is from By Malene Birger and features black buttons and a rather large collar. To match the new coat, Mary wore a brand new burgundy blouse that has a certain 70's vibe, because of the A-shape and light material. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to identify it. It reminds me a lot of the asymmetric Alexander McQueen skirt she wore here. She chose a pair of trousers with slim legs to match the blouse. Mary accessorized her outfit with several jewelleries from Ole Lynggaard Copenhage and, believe it or not, a pair of really old golden earrings from Pureheart. She's also wearing her golden Georg Jensen bracelet. In a lovely caramel colour she added her Ralph Lauren bag and grey suede ankle boots from Gianvito Rossi. I really think her outfit is inspiring. The way of mixing a burgundy blouse and the slim trousers is so pretty. Do you think we will see more of this "modern edgy style" in the future? I hope so.
