“It’s been an incredible six months for Van Mildert and we have ambitious plans for further expansion this year.”

The new boutique will provide an array fashion brands including; Burberry, Nudie Jeans, Maharishi, Vivienne Westwood, Hugo Boss, Belstaff and Evisu.

Van Mildert is part of the Delima Retail group of fashion stores, owned by brothers Eric and Cyril Williams.
