In 1999, French Cambodian sisters Val & Vanda Heng Vong found themselves living and studying in London. Whilst enjoying the creative diversity that London has to offer, the sisters still found themselves missing many of their favourite Parisian labels and products that they couldn't get hold of on the British side of the Channel.
The concept of a multi brand lifestyle boutique showcasing the best in French design was born and so Aimé opened shortly.
Almost 10 years later in 2008, after much demand from their regular clients, Val and Vanda opened Petit Aimé for children
aged 0 - 12 years.
The concept remains the same, with the addition of an array of toys and books and some beautiful handmade objects for the home.
In 2013 Aimé expanded from its original West London home, across town to Shoreditch, opening a 3rd boutique in Redchurch Street.
