Hat From the Past

Royal Hats to this day in 2002, seventeen years ago, that saw Princess Nobuko wear a wide-brimmed, cream straw hat wrapped in net veiling to open an exhibition celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Japanese Red Cross Society. It’s a far larger scale Imperial royal hat than we usually see these days and I’d love to see more of this!

  1. I can appreciate the practical reasons for small-brimmed or brimless hats, but this is a great look for Princess Nobuko.

  2. Gorgeous – the whole outfit in fact is lovely. It’s almost as if an edict has been made that no larger brims may be worn now. I would love to see more variation in hat styles worn by the Imperial Family.

    • In my opinion, the proportions of a large hat on a small person can be tricky. Also if everyone is taller than you, your face is virtually hidden under a large brim. But this looks really successful and I’d love to see more !
