The Story of The Hippy Clothing Co. In hippy fashion since 1967!
Rudolph set up the original Park Walk boutique in London during the swinging sixties. It was an instant hit and he soon opened a second store in Brighton, East Sussex. Nestled in the famous Brighton Lanes, Park Walk has been a well-loved source of unusual street wear and unique hippy chic ever since.
A family fashion affair
These days Rudolph’s family is also involved with running the shop and online store, making Park Walk’s unique blend of Boho and festival style, hippie fashion and right-on street wear available to a wider audience.

A bit about the Brighton Lanes
Once at the heart of the tiny fishing village of Brighthelmstone, today Brighton’s Lanes is a treasure trove of narrow alleyways and twisting twittens lined with independent boutiques, bars, antique shops, jewellers, cafes and restaurants. It’s a tourist trap as well as a hot destination for local shoppers who appreciate Brighton’s legendary preference for ‘something a bit different’!
Our Shop in the Heart of the Lanes
Our Brighton store is located with in the old lanes and only a 5 min walk from the beach. Our store is full of boho festival clothing and almost mirrors our website, the main difference between the two is that we stock more one off/unique pieces in the shop which we can't do on the website. If you are heading down to Brighton please come in and say hi as we always love meeting our online customers and it is a great way for you to check out some new pieces or try on that piece you've been eyeing up on the website.
