Last week, Princess Hisako of Takamado visited a chrysanthemum exhibition at Daikakuji Temple in Kyoto. For this visit, she wore a petite black wool boater hat trimmed in a band and bow of the same metallic fabric as her suit. This fabric looks like it time traveled straight from the 1980s but as it brought both colour and sparkle to this ensemble (something we seldom see on the Imperial royal ladies), I’m going hold my reservations silent. The boater shape of this hat is quite smart on Princess Hisako, isn’t it?
Previously Worn: I believe this is a new hat
