Color — SAGE
Simone is equal parts sun shield and statement piece. We’re particularly fond of the dreamy sage hue, which sets it apart from other straw hats while still being neutral. Wear it on slow Saturdays at the farmers’ market or pack it in your suitcase the next time you leave town (it’s designed to spring back into shape).
It all started with a vintage fedora that founder Janessa Leoné purchased during a trip to Paris—stamped inside were the milliner’s initials and, serendipitously, it turned out that his last name was also Leone. Leoné took it as a sign. More than a decade later, her eponymous brand has grown from a small millinery label into a full-fledged accessories line, making similarly long-lasting, timeless pieces. We first fell in love with the straw and wool hats, but today the line also includes luxurious leather goods and sumptuously soft knits. Since its inception, the brand has been committed to sourcing materials responsibly from farms and production facilities around the world—Los Angeles, New York, Pennsylvania, Madagascar, and Ecuador.
