San Remo, Italy (the Mall)
It may be unusual to start the guide with an outlet but this mall is a real jewel of both French and Italian Rivieras. The Mall Sanremo, located just a short distance from the French Riviera, introduces a new level of luxury shopping to the area. Stop by the Balenciaga store for something on-trend and reasonably priced. New arrivals are made frequently. Some other brands that can be found here are Bottega Venetta, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Burberry and more.
When it first opened in Cagnes-sur-Mer in October 2015, there was so much excitement that motorists were stuck in gridlock for days before they could explore the new retail paradise. Polygone Riviera’s fame has increased since then. This open-air shopping mall, which is supposed to seem like a European hamlet complete with a lake and a thousand trees, is astonishing in its diversity. It’s a full-fledged hedonistic trip on the Côte d’Azur, not simply a window show! What are the benefits? What better place to start than with the stores? Among the 170 categories are fashion, home décor, eyewear, beauty, art, literature, children’s books, and gardening. Bershka, Pull & Bear, JD, Zara, Mango, Primark, FNAC, Uniqlo, and others rub shoulders with luxury brands like Boss, IKKS, Aubade, Valentino, Calvin Klein, and others, as well as rising labels like Nue 19.04, American Vintage, Jott, La Fée Maraboutée, and Others Stories. Le Printemps is the store’s longest-running name brand, occupying a massive 9,000 square feet. Stop by a luxury second hand store in Printemps – whether it is to sell or buy.
Monaco is without a doubt the world’s luxury shopping hub. The brand-new “One” area opened to the public in March 2019, and it is just a short walk from Monte Carlo’s world-famous casino. Prada, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, and other high-end luxury labels have converted the theater into a shopping hub. Potential modern labels who aren’t quite ready for their own boutique may also be found at MC Market in the Larvotto district. And have you heard of a luxury shop of pre-loved goods SELLIER? If not, you are definitely missing out. From stunning Birkins to everyday small leather goods of different brands – everything can be found in pristine conditions.
