LONDON FASHION WEEK S/S 15. In collaboration with SIBLING, Bernstock Speirs have designed straw-mesh bandeau hats with oversized bows.
These hats combine the grandeur of the1950’s ballroom with the down-town, street attitude of the 1980’s girl groups…think Madonna, Banarama et al.
Those girls could really rock a messy hair-do with a bow!

Read all about Paul and Thelma in the October edition of Vogue Japan. If you can read Japanese, that is.
Otherwise, the pictures are great too!
A film by Romain Sellier
There is a girl.
No one sees her face behind the curtain of her hair.
Wherever she goes and whatever she does, she hides her face behind her hair.
As will happen to those who are different, she is bullied by some other girls.
She has a secret crush on a boy who rides a bike.
One day she changes her habits: to avoid the mean girls, she takes another way home, and discovers a cute little shop, the walls and shelves arrayed with Beanies and Caps… joyful, happy hats.
She steps inside.
The shop keeper, smiling, hands her a mysterious box.
And what is in that box will change her life……
