Princess Hanako Returns To Public Life

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?

  1. 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?)

  2. 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.
