Heavenly Hong Kong hats

I stopped over in Hong Kong for a few days on my way home to Australia. I stay with lovely friends who live in Mid Levels. This is their view.


The shops in Hong Kong are dressed for spring and looking wonderful. I was very impressed with a spectacular hat display at Lane Crawford in the IFC building.







The hats were continued throughout the store teamed with new season clothes.




Can you see yourself in any of these?


  1. Nothing there would go with my wardrobe !

    • I can see you in the black punk style hat. It would be excellent when riding your bike.

  2. I agree. But hey, Melbourne Cup is only 9 months away!

    • A quick trip to Hong Kong could be in order.

  3. Flowers heads are my favurite 🙂 Amazing show. Thank you dear Debra, have a nice and enjoyable days and safety voyage. Love, nia

    • There are some very pretty styles there.

  4. They are beautiful hats.

    • I think so too. I could see some of them being worn at the races.

  5. What a fun post, Debra! I have never seen so many cool hats–especially the one in the fourth photo–with the long feathers! AMAZING!

    Hugs from Ecuador,

    • The feathered hat is incredible, but it could poke eyes out.

  6. Yes please I would love one of those clusters of spring flowers at Lane Crawford Hey and welcome back Deb.

    • It is nice to be home and I could see you in that hat.

  7. A wonderful display! Thank you for sharing it with us.

    • It is a beautiful display. They were still working on it when I was there.

  8. A bit to exotic for me but I’m sure they would suit the race going fashionisters!

    • I probably don’t have an occasion to wear them either, but I can appreciate the work in them.

  9. Nothing for me, but the bull horns arrangement is interesting.

    • If you decided to take up bull fighting it could come in handy.

      • 🙂

  10. definitely melbourne cup but where to find an outfit to match??? so different

    • I’m sure Lane Crawford would have something to go with the hats.

  11. Love your views! The hats are amazing! Travel home safely. 🙂

    • Thank you. I have now arrived safely in Brisbane and am enjoying some Australia time.

  12. These are crazy! Have you ever seen someone wearing one?

    • Yes, people wear hats like some of these to the race track.

      • I can;t even imagine. I am such a boring dresser! I hate shopping too unless of course I’m traveling and its more fun! 🙂

  13. I wouldn’t like that view – give me mountains anyday!

    • Funny you should say that. The view from the back of the apartment is mountains. Eagles swoop down and fly between the buildings. I love cityscapes and oceans just as much as I love mountain views.

  14. Some of those are gorgeous, but some are outrageous – I’m not sure how you’d balance them on your head! 🙂

    • I’m not sure that some of them would be very practical, but they look good.

  15. Such beautiful window dressing, what skill they have. I love the roses, it must feel so special to wear one of those creations. That view of Hong Kong is absolutely breathtaking at nightime – I’ve never seen a nightscape like it.

    • The hats are lovely and Hong Kong is a great place to visit.

  16. Wonderful post!

    • Thanks, I love Hong Kong.

  17. Amazing pictures! Really nice hats)

    • It was a fabulous display.

  18. I absolutely love those hats! I have a bit of a thing for hats and the more elaborate the better! 😀

    • Some of these hats were amazing. They would look great sitting in the corner of a room…no need to wear them.

  19. Those are the hats celebrities wear on awards night where they get criticized for it.
