The opening of "Crown Princess Mary Center – solving problems through research and partnerships"

02 February

The "Crown Princess Mary Center - solving problems through research and partnerships" is the name of a new science center at University of Copenhagen. On February 2nd, the Crown Princess was accompanied by her husband Crown Prince Frederik, when attending the grand opening of the new center.

The Crown Princess Mary Center aims to build an interdisciplinary knowledge environment. To focus on new solutions to current societal challenges where people are at the center. The Crown Princess will also be part of the Advisory Committee connected to the center.

After the couple arrived to the University of Copenhagen, Crown Princess Mary gave a speech on occasion of the opening. Among others, she included the Danish tradition of partnerships and how this will be a central part of the new Crown Princess Mary Center.

I do like Mary's outfit from the opening, but in my opinion, it was a bit clumsy. Maybe too many layers? She was wearing a brand new black "vest-dress". The details are so sharp and well-made. Danish designer Søren Le Schmidt is the master behind her new dress. The simple white blouse is a Briit Sisseck design. Worn before at, among others, the opening of the "Fashion Fair 2021" (here). The black coat looks old, but I cannot figure out when or where we have seen it. Do you recognize it?

Mary embraced the style with a lovely golden brooch featuring the most amazing purple stones. We have seen it before, but I have never been able to identify it. I think it could be purchased on an auction. The diamond studs are still mystery to me. They are so beautiful, but I do not know where they are from. Her rather large golden ring is by Dulong Fine Jewelry.

Last but not least. She accessorized her outfit with Tom Ford glasses and an exclusive black leather clutch from Quidam. A loved pieces in her wardrobe. Once again, Mary wore her purple Aquazzura boots. The colour is absolutely outstanding. One day I would really like to see them in full length. Without anything covering them. Do you like such knee-length boots?

  1. I agree with you about this outfit, not one of her best. I thought that the coat and dress looked too big on her. I guess she was going for a smart, professional type of look but it didn't quite work. A rare fail though and we all have our off days! Thanks for your fantastic coverage of all the birthday events, they must have kept you very busy!

    1. You are very welcome! I have been busy ha ha and still is. I try to keep up, but it ended up almost impossible :D
