First of all, no shopping on an empty stomach, so we start the day with a good breakfast to get our strength back. Direction “le Fédéral“, “Casa di Nonna” or “Maison Charlotte Busset”, all three located on Rue Hoche. As we are on Rue Hoche, we will start our shopping day at the “Charlot” boutique (10 rue Chabaud +33(0)4 93 39 95 98) to find vintage Levis jeans or unique pieces such as jackets or a pair of trainers.
Shopping, food :Claire's favourite addresses!
Rue Hochestart of the shopping tour!
We’re still shopping second hand, but this time to find certified luxury items at very attractive prices, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for at “LuxuryandPrim” (9 rue d’Alger +33 (0)4 93 99 47 14) accessories, bags, jewellery, watches and even clothes from the big fashion houses. I love going there without looking for anything in particular and discovering nuggets! A nice selection, sometimes with new pieces.
The shop is also a store, you can drop off the pieces that are sleeping in your wardrobes to give them a second life and finance new purchases!
I like the idea of consuming differently, less but better.
For a few years now I have preferred to have one beautiful piece with a nice composition that will last over time than several that will not. Doing good to the planet and to one’s wallet, the famous adage, quality over quantity will make sense.
Rue d’Antibesthe must-have!
We start with the COS boutique, rue d’Antibes (105 rue d’Antibes +33 (0)4 89 12 95 50), which offers basic and timeless pieces made from sustainable materials. They have recently launched a range of recycled cashmere!
Well, we have clothes, bags, accessories, shoes are missing! Let’s go to the “ Jonak ” shop (131 rue d’Antibes +33 (0)4 93 68 76 74) a little further up the rue d’Antibes, since 1964 the brand creates shoes, it’s a family adventure, if you have time, you can find the history of the house on their website. Aesthetic lines, singular codes and above all a real craftmanship, moreover their factories are mainly located in Europe (Portugal, Spain and Italy) and all this at reasonable prices! In short, you will have understood, I am a fan of this brand and I have owned a few pairs for many years.
We move on to a fashion accessory that is a must in Cannes: sunglasses! Let’s go to Jimmy Fairly (43 rue d’Antibes), you will find sunglasses mainly made of Eco Acetate, a vegetable and biodegradable material. Unique design collections.
Then, let’s go shopping for the kids at Monoprix (9 rue du Maréchal Foch 04 92 99 61 61), Natalys (9 rue Buttura +33 (0)4 93 39 14 32) or Petit Bateau (50 rue d’Antibes +33(0)4 93 38 05 82).
This article is coming to an end, I hope you will enjoy this trip to Cannes to discover my good addresses, to recover from your emotions and regain your strength, I advise you to have lunch on rue Hoche at “Le Cirque” you won’t be disappointed.
