Anything ‘Simon and Mary‘ is anything exciting. So when the new Simon and Mary Look Book popped up in my emails I knew not to expect anything less than perfection and perfection is exactly what their latest range, 50 / 50 is.
Introducing a completely new approach and material, Simon and Mary have taken the courageous leap that keeps them top of the charts year in and year out. Experimenting with hemp and felt to achieve a more ‘sport lux product’, Simon and Mary are pushing the envelope within the millinery world. Working with the best the industry has to offer, Trevor Stuurman ( shame on you if you don’t recognise his name) interpreted the brief and product by taking a truly collaborative approach, working with various creatives to make sure the end product is what Simon and Mary’s name has become synonymous with- effortless chic.
Gaining inspiration from and creating a sort of ode to photographer extraordinaire, Malik Sidibe, the team worked with what they had ( being resourceful is the name of the game) and truly achieved a Look book worthy of international praise. I am already salivating their next collection, but I guess patience is a virtue ( or so I hear).
