‘New’ Hat From the Past #40

Royal Hats to October 11, 1982 and a very pretty blue hat worn in Australia. We often see hats with lattice woven brims but seldom do we see one where this pattern is on the crown- a unique touch on this design, one I don’t remember seeing before.

  1. I’m sure the peach hat you’ve shown is not the same hat, Jimbo – the hat in the link has 2 folds in the brim, 1 on on each side– but thanks for a superb photo! the peach hat must certainly have been worn with one of the lovely salmon coats you added.
    I do appreciate the very appropriate simplicity of the hat styles worn by Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret in their childhood – chosen, I assume, by their mother the Queen. She had great taste.
    I couldn’t find a pic of the peach hat in action, but I did find one in 1934 showing the 2 coats, minus hats. Elizabeth, aged 8, like her mother wears gloves and carries a purse: https://ichef.bbci.co.uk/news/976/cpsprodpb/D257/production/_89174835_5509dbe1-63f0-44fd-8e38-de75242d2f37.jpg

    • Thank you Maja for keeping us up to date while our beloved HatQueen is on vacation.I enjoy seeing the millinery of the aristocracy and the royalty when available.

    • I’ve always wondered the same thing. Royals must have enormous wardrobes and a filing system so they know what items are worn with what. I imagine rooms and rooms in the palaces devoted to hat box after hat box. I would love to spend some time just looking around and admiring all the beautiful fabrics, trims,furs and jewels.

  3. I just think that “little girl” hat styles- http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/british-royalty-pic-circa-1935-hrhthe-duke-and-duchess-of-york-of-picture-id78949848 should be left for little girls to wear, not grown women. The pudding-bowl crown is so, what can I say, round…. and the brim is so, ah, even. No trim to speak of. Basic and practical.
    However, I do award points for the interesting lattice-work, which reminds me of woven pandanus-frond; and the see-through brim lightens and softens the shape quite a bit. And I can’t ignore the colour, which appears to be THE most gorgeous and becoming lilac blue. In fact, I like the colour scheme of this outfit so much, that I give this hat a pass.
