After several months out of the public eye to treat lumbar spondylosis, it was wonderful to see Princess Hanako out and about today at the 42nd Asia-Pacific Festival and Charity Bazaar in Tokyo. For this visit, she wore a spring green suit with matching hat, covered in the same fabric. A modified bowler, the hat features a rounded crown and flat brim, whimsically trimmed with a wide swath of dotted white veil. The veil trim does wonders to lift the hat, which is a rather staid shape on its own, as does the colour.
Previously Worn: I believe this hat is new
It’s so lovely to see Princess Hanako again- I’m sure you join me in wishing her the very best in her continued recovery. What do you think of her fresh green hat today?
Yes, the veil is the detail that really makes this hat! Lovely color, a nice suit, and great return for Hanako!
I love this whole outfit (at least what we can see of it in these pictures) and the netting on the hat is the perfect trim. It looks like a nice little cloud of white around the hat!
Perfect scale, as well as a delightful color.
You are right Hat Queen, the charm of the hat is all in the veil trimming! Gives the outfit a wonderful spring feeling (although it must be autumn now in Japan, and not spring?)
Hmmm… I think it’s spring in Japan (Northern Hemisphere, yes?!)
Yes, northern hemisphere, I just checked. This whole outfit is lovely, and It’s great to see Hanako out and about.
She looks lovely. I always liked the color green, but it generally looks ghastly on me. I admire those who are lucky enough to wear it well, and she does.
