Bernstock Speirs discuss DIY punk culture and three decades of design. Interview by Carla Seipp.


Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,

Bernstock Speirs (one part Paul Bernstock, one part Thelma Speirs) have been creating their well-crafted yet whimsical headwear for over three decades. Especially known for their veiled beanies and bunny ear baseball caps, the two designers have become so well-versed in working as a duo that they even finish each other's sentences.

In the comfort of their Brick Lane flagship store and design studio, Bernstock and Speirs discussed their latest menswear collection, 'accidental' foray into the world of millinery and the evolution of the fashion industry.
