Shoppers searching for a touch of Gallic chic on London’s streets should make Aimé – the offspring of French-Cambodian sisters Val and Vanda Heng-Vong – their first port-of-call. Inside you’ll find the crème de la crème of French designers, with labels like APC, APC Madras, Isabel Marant and Forte Forte. Also check out the Sarti range of tasteful scarves. Biker jackets and boots are big news again as are all items inspired by the 1970s Jane Birkin look. Bath products and seductive home accessories, including Aimé’s range of scented candles, are equally attractive. Next door, Petit Aimé stocks an adorable range of clothes for babies and children.
