  1. Pas beaucoup de fantaisie ou d'improvisation .Même si les colliers de perles à 1 rang sont superbes ( 2 rangs ce serait de la folie avant 90 ans) il émerge surtout de la tristesse de ces photos .

  2. These women seem like stepford wives. Their clothing is like bad 60's mixed with 80's fashion. The younger women dress exactly alike with no individualism or personality. And when all is said and done the girls are pushed to the side once they get married. A very sexist system. I really feel no enthusiasm for this royal house.

  3. Quel héritage lourd à porter que cette rigueur protocolaire nippone! Est-ce qu'ils ont même connaissance du mot ''fantaisie''?

  4. While I respect the centuries old traditions which have shaped the Japanese Imperial Family, it is the Imperial Household run by a group of powerful old men who flat refuse to allow any hint of individualism for the Imperial Family members, along with the outdated, unflattering outfits that the royal ladies constantly wear.

  5. Princesses Mako and Kako are young girls in their early twenties, but it seems they should dress in ill fitting, nondescript clothes that ladies thrice their age would refuse to wear. And then when they marry they will be mather-of-factly dispossessed of their titles, styles and family status. With luck they have been educated to transition as smoothly as possible into the world of mere mortals that spreads out of the Imperial Palace compound.

  6. They havent adopted the western culture well according to me.... It is looking strange when they are in this attire. I would prefer them not to forgo their own tradition. They should not leave their traditional identity behind.
