Simon and Mary SS15

the new SS15 collection from Johannesburg based milliners Simon and Mary has made me realise that i really need a yellow hat for summer. and a blue one. maybe even a green one if i’m feeling fancy. i love seeing their classic styles in such rad colours.

Simon and Mary is based on a family bond within the hat factory. Using machinery bought in the 60’s and continuing the legacy created by the original milliner, Simon Pozniak. The milliner title has been passed down from generation to generation. Hats are in our blood, it is more than a clothing item, but rather a way of life.

the mounty, bowler and pith helmet collections will be released and in store in SA by November. the panama collection will be released in the next few days. berets are currently at Prime Store in JHB and Smith and Abrahams. see my previous post about Simon and Mary here.

  1. the hats are super cute, but the tags are soooo big! i want the attention to be on my colourful hat, not on the label :/

  2. The shoot and the hats are lovely, but I’m not entirely impressed by their “hats stop freckles” line, as if freckles are something that all civilized ladies should avoid at all costs. I’m sure there’s a more articulate way to say this, but I’ll just call that line of reasoning disappointing.

    • i don’t think that was their intention, the entire lookbook has a healthy tongue-in-cheek vibe to it. i am sure they have nothing against freckles.
