About Bernstock Speirs
Paul Bernstock and Thelma Speirs met whilst studying Fashion/Textiles at Middlesex University and in 1982 established the label Bernstock Speirs. Inspired by the underground club & music scene, they began creating men’s & women’s hats which challenged the traditional ideas of millinery.
A new generation of hat wearers were seduced by the witty, fashionable and innovative styles.
Today, the spirit of the brand remains vibrant and youthful. The hats are sporty and fashion forward using unconventional fabrics and techniques, crafted into unique designs with an emphasis on detail and quality
Designer collaborations include: Peter Jensen, Richard Nicoll, Emma Cook, Unconditional, Agnes B and Jean-Paul Gaultier.
