Simon and Mary

Simon and Mary is a heritage brand for a new generation. Launched in 2014 by their family of milliners who have been in the business since 1935, Simon and Mary honour the past but are inspired by the contemporary.

Family is in the bones of their business; their factory in Johannesburg stands as it did half a century ago. New designs or classic shapes are made with the same trusted machinery from the ‘60s by experienced machinists whose own children have inherited their skills and now work and grow within the business decades later.

The first Simon and Mary collection was presented on the heads of Johannesburg’s creative class; the brand has always been inseparable from the city. Over the years they’ve partnered with local creative collaborators like Jana+Koos and Trevor Stuurman to visually tell their story.

Simon and Mary has cultivated a community of loyal enthusiasts who, like the brand, uphold individuality, style, and the finest quality.
