The Imperial Crown

Emperor Xianfeng and Monika SawickaAccording to imperial dress codes under the Qing Dynasty, court officials and bureaucrats would don required red caps known as “Rites Hat.” Two styles of the hat were worn, the Nuan Mao and the Liang Mao, the former reserved for summer, consisting of a conically shaped red cap and the latter worn during winter featuring a black fur brim as pictured in Emperor Xianfeng’s portrait c. 1855. For his Fall 2012 collection, designer Jason Wu looked to his Chinese heritage, incorporating elements of Chinese traditional dress into his ready to wear collection.
