Once again, Japan fills a niche that I found lacking back home. I love hats….pretty much any style, or colour of hat.

In Japan, the color purple often signifies wealth and position and was restricted for the use of those of high rank.
While purple was often worn in the winter months as a kimono color, it seems that it’s catching on a spring color in Japan. Check out this recent post by Japan Streets on how murasaki (purple) is taking spring fashion by storm.
I wonder if this traditional color system unconsciously influences the color choices of young people who are often not aware of these old Japanese customs, but are still exposed to them in their daily life.
