Hat From the Past

Royal Hats to the Epsom derby in June 1976 and a bumper brimmed hat in the most marvelous blue and green print worn by the Queen Mother. 1970s fashion gets a bad rap but wouldn’t you say, this is some of the best?!

  1. It’s a great hat! It looks as though the pattern is woven into the straw? I wonder how the milliner got her to go with such a departure from her usual flower-laden style?

  2. Love the color combo and that graphical pattern. I’ve never before seen this hat or any other like it on QM. I couldn’t find any other views, but if anyone else finds any, bring them on! It would also be interesting to see if the green is carried over into her dress/suit, or just the blue.

  3. I’ve never seen this one before – it’s fantastic. The Queen Mum was normally on floral patterns, so it feels unusual to see a graphic patterned hat on her. The use of the colours is great.
