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.
