The epitome of classic meets contemporary (and now convenience!), Johannesburg-based millinery brand Simon and Mary has introduced their latest range of felt hats; a collection that is both 100% crushable and crush-worthy. Once these packable, foldable hats are unfolded or unpacked, they return back to their naturally pressed crown. This makes them great for travelling, which also happens to be the best time to wear hats. This Autumn/Winter range is available from the 1st of May in the basic Simon and Mary colours as well as in their newly introduced, and brilliant, two-tone chambray crowns.
Just as excellent is the lookbook in which the collection is presented; a signature Jana + Koos creation that’s equal parts clever, offbeat and beautiful. The hats are crumpled, moulded or balanced precariously on models’ heads and conical hatstands in photographs by Zander Opperman. Adjacent letters of descriptive, wonky words are switched around to play tricks on the eye and serve as an example of the attention to detail we’ve come to expect from the duo, and the brand.
