Last in Brighton

Chosen by Simon See, sales executive for footwear brands Hudson and H by Hudson

Shopping in Brighton, where I lived for seven years, is such a unique experience thanks to the diverse choice of individual boutiques, of which my favourite is Last. Tucked away on Pool Valley, near the South Lanes, the store specialises in footwear, hosiery and accessories and is owned by Alex Herdman, who makes her own bespoke and ready-to-wear shoes.

She complements her own collection, which is handmade, with brands such as H by Hudson and Narrative, and also champions local designers. Last mainly stocks women’s collections but it has a few bits for men. Every piece stocked is original and a real find.

I admire Alex’s ethos as shoemaking is a dying art, but also because I believe in longevity when it comes to fashion. Last offers products that use quality materials that wear in rather than wear out. Alex has a real respect for craft, design and artisan workmanship.

It’s a real gem of a shop and fast becoming a well-known ‘secret’.
