Simon and Miller Lookbook Pays Homage To Malik Sibede

South African milliners Simon and Mary have worked with a young team of creatives for their latest 50/50 look book. The collection of hats pays homage to the life of Malian photographer Malik Sibede, who became known as “the eye of Bamako”. His work was well recognized for his black and white documented photos of pop culture in Bamako, Mila during the 1960’s.

The collection reimagines the classic cricket hat made with hemp into a sports lux headpiece. The collaborative effort between the young creatives The Sartists, Nikki Zakkas, Jana + Koos, and Trevor Stuurman, delivers an interpretation of Sibede’s life. “The shoot was an absolute labor of love. The concepts was simple – it was a celebration of the life of the legendary photographer, Malick Sibede and doing the most with the little we have. It was all about being resourceful and about creative chemistry,” described Trevor.

The clothes modeled and styled by Nikki, Wanda, and Kabelo features brown, green earthy tones, and burgundy-blue hues that were inspired by Kabelo’s interpretation of the Netflix series Narchos, a story which follows the rise and fall of the Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar.

Much can be said about Malik Sibede work. “No African artist has done more to enhance photography’s stature in the region, contribute to its history, enrich its image archive or increase our awareness of the textures and transformations of African culture in the second half of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st than Malick Sidibé,” according to art academic curator Robert Stor. His influence as a photographer will forever live on.
