Hat From the Past

Royal Hats to this day in 2006, 15 years ago, when the former Empress of Japan arrived for a state visit to Thailand in a large white saucer hat trimmed with the loveliest deep peacock blue silk flowers.

  1. This hat is beyond delightful! I’ve never seen this one before unfortunately, but it can make a comeback any day if the Empress Emerita wants to do so. 😉 That peacock blue is such a good color for her.

  2. Such a pretty and delicate hat – it looks perfect on her.

    Harking back to Mathilde’s hat of a few days ago and the puckering issues I always think the hats worn by the Japanese royals look beautifully crafted. I may not always like the design but the workmanship looks beautiful.
