Upon entering, clients are instantly elevated to a sun-kissed mindset that affords the perfect ambiance for holiday shopping.With a second boutique opening in 2004 in Chelsea, London, and now selling in over 150 stores in 39 countries globally, Heidi Klein remains an independent brand that evolves each season with chic and elegant designs for the well-travelled client.

Heidi Klein's focus on exclusive styles and prints has earned a continued celebrity following from Kate Moss to Olivia Palermo, to Sienna Miller and Jennifer Aniston, as well as maintaining a strong following with the press and a loyal customer base.
