Features | London Guides | | Leave a Comment

With its rainbow of terraced houses and famous residents, Notting Hill has long been considered one of the most fashionable and sought-after areas of London, even before Hugh Grant made it famous in his film of the same name.

If you’re not lucky enough to have a few million pounds spare to buy a property here, it’s still a great area to wander and do some shopping at the area’s many designer stores and independent boutiques.


Here’s our guide to some of the best shops in Notting Hill:


1. Aimé

Designer boutique, Aimé, offers a curated collection from French designers including Isabel Marant, APC, and Forte Forte. If you’ve got kids, you’ll want to head next-door to Petite Amié, which stocks an equally adorable ranch of French fashion for babies and kids.

The shop was opened by French Cambodian sisters, Val and Vanda Heng-Vong as they could not find anywhere locally to shop their favourite European luxury labels. As well as clothing, the boutique also stocks a small range of jewellery, accessories, and homewares
