Big changes are coming for Japan. As we take a look back and a look ahead, I thought we should also take a look at Michiko’s Royal Wardrobe. We’re all familiar with the Empress’ tiny hats and capes from the last 20 years or better, so I’ll be featuring her early days as Crown Princess in the late 50s, 60s, and 70s.
Virtually all photo credit goes to the pinners on Pinterest.
So how do you like your Michiko? Caped and tranquil, or Dior/Chanel suited back in the day?
As a bonus I have provided a few links to various articles about both the Empress herself and her clothing. You should take a look. They provide some unusual insights into this very private institution and woman.
