FLINT is housed in a beautiful 14th Century building in the historic market town of Lewes and is a truly individual boutique. We set up shop in 2002 and since then have strived to find all sorts of wonderful, unusual and stylish things inspired by our love of travel. A carefully chosen collection of beautiful clothes, bags, scarves and shoes are upstairs on the first floor complemented by perfumes from boutique brands such as Molecule 01, DS & Durga, Jardin d'Ecrivains, Cote Bastide together with natural hair and skincare from Honest, Aybury, Evolve Natural Beauty, Vilda Vaxter, John Masters Organics, This Works and Bamford. Fresh flowers are available all year round, they're for sale on the ground floor where we offer our floristry service. We also sell an interesting, carefully edited selection of books and music and a range of homeware sourced from around the world.

The promise of warmer weather goes hand in hand with dressing in lighter layers. Our collection this season, as always, embraces the natural and tactile fabrics of cotton and silk, in neutral shades of stone, white, cream, pale grey and black.

Stand out pieces this season include the longline black cover up - a simple, elegant piece to throw over jeans. There are also some great tie-waisted pants in a fine check - perfect paired with a simple white shirt and a linen jumpsuit that'll be perfect for summer.

Shades of sienna, burnt umber and black, balanced with neutral cream and white all evoke that scorched Spanish terrain in the early evening light, making us yearn for those...
