Princess Kiko was in Hyogo yesterday to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the city’s Red Cross Society. For the occasion, the princess, who is the Honorary Vice President of Japanese Red Cross Society, wore a navy blue silk covered hat. The hat featured a bowler shaped crown, a short brim and a wide band of braided silk trim that also trimmed Princess Kiko’s jacket. I thought this hat was worthy of a post because of the trim- an element that gives much textural interest and adds life to an otherwise pretty boring hat. It’s an an interesting touch, don’t you agree?
Previously Worn: I believe this hat is new
