Fashion for the Countryside

With Spring really here a lot of us will want to get out in the country whether it be to do some serious walking and sporting pursuits or just be comfortable and fashionable.  One shop that can make sure we are set to go is Aston Bourne of Brighton.

Predominantly stocking Barbour since 1982, Aston Bourne is also the home to Hunter boots, both of which are known for their British heritage, high quality and Royal Warrants. Alongside these lines, they also stock Dubarry of Ireland, the best waterproof boots for exploring the British countryside.

With the continued support of their loyal customers and ever growing brands, Aston Bourne is pleased to announce the expansion of their small shop to much larger premises in East Street, Brighton.

They will be showcasing Barbour’s new International Range, alongside the Spring/Summer Country and Lifestyle collections. Expect to see more collaboration’s with the brilliantly intricate artwork of William Morris, newcomer Julie Dodsworth and other inspiring artists. The International range, it's sticking with its motorcycle heritage this season infused with a nostalgic undertone.
