  1. I like the elegance of the saucer hat the best. As a Canadian I like her colour choice for the appropriate green hat but I think I would like it better without the slight bulk of the crin on the brim.

    I always enjoy seeing Princess Hisako’s lovely hats.

  2. I’m in complete agreement with everyone excited to see a post exclusively on Princess Hisako. She is such delight – always smiling and seems to enjoy meeting people and learning.
    My favorites are the green #4 and #2. The green because the color is so pretty on her, and the style is quite jaunty. She also looks great in the saucer #2.

  3. The only one I’m not a huge fan of is #1 since I think it looks a bit twee on Hisako (who can rock larger brims). #2 is my overall favorite, although if #4 (my runner-up of this list) had just a plain hatband, it would easily be the winner since apple green is one of my favorite shades of green. Wonderful to wake up to Princess Hisako’s wonderful smile and hats this morning!

  4. All of them! Hisako is a very elegant woman and has more of a current and distinct look than most of the other Japanese ladies.

    If pushed, the saucer hat but the last one also provides a nice juxtaposition with the stripes.

  5. What a treat to see a post devoted to Princess Hisako – thank you. I think my favourite is the black pyramid, number 2. The whole look is particularly elegant with this hat. Number 4, the green one, adds a nice element too. I’m less convinced by number 3, I think because the white overlay somehow distracts and detracts from the overall effect of the outfit.

  6. I do like Princess Hisako! Look 3 is my least favourite – I’m not keen on the crin overlay on this hat. She looks good in all the hats really, but possibly my favourite is the green one at 4 – did she borrow the hatband, which seems to have a patterned edge to it, from look 1?

    • Great catch- yes, it looks like the hatband on the first hat (which, I think is bound in the same fabric on the suit) was added to the green hat. You readers miss nothing!
