Hat From the Past

Royal Hatsto this day in 1997, 23 years ago. Princess Christina of Sweden attended the unveiling of a monument dedicated to Raoul Wallenberg in an ivory wool cloche with sidesweeping mini-brim and a mass of ivory looped bows on the side. I love it when a small hat in a neutral colour makes a strong statement, as this one did!

  1. Just saw this in a retrospective of Princess Alexandra and had to share it. There’s rope trim and then there’s ROPE TRIM.

  2. Princess Eugenie posted a throwback pic of her and her husband from August 2010

  3. I love this hat. The loops imitate an ostrich plume, but with more weight, suited to the blanket style coat the hat was worn with. The multi-coloured scarf ties the outfit together nicely.
