With the opening of the new One Monte-Carlo district, the Monte-Carlo Shopping Promenade is undergoing a revival to become the most exclusive shopping promenade along the Riviera. Find out more about this new luxury treasure trove…
The One Monte-Carlo district is a new, unique and ultra-modern living space where Monegasque and international visitors alike can peruse collections from some of the top designers in the world. It is home to a total of 24 luxury boutiques, 17 of which are in the complex itself on the new Promenade Princesse Charlène and the Avenue Princesse Alice. Six others line the Avenue des Beaux-Arts to complete the experience: Dior, Piaget, Alexander McQueen, Bulgari, Prada and Cartier.
This is a one-of-a-kind display, with five of the most prestigious luxury brands sitting side by side: Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Fendi and Prada. All the luxury labels imaginable – from fashion to fine jewellery and watches – are to be found in Monaco, and all have the same aim: to offer their clientele an unforgettable shopping experience.
These luxury labels have taken this as an opportunity to think big. Whilst some have dressed their boutiques with iconic pieces, artwork, limited editions and nods to the history of Monaco, others have meticulously designed their interior décor down to the last detail, setting the scene with marble floors, hand-sewn tapestries, imposing staircases and high-tech fixtures.
With stores spanning multiple floors, monumental window displays, lush verdant façades and staff keen to lavish attention on shoppers, it’s hard to resist the area’s appeal.
The new district, with its fluid, delicate lines, has been four years in the making. Spanning a total area of 60,000 m2, it embodies the very best of the savoir-faire that Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer has to offer, with designs of becoming the most exclusive destination in Europe.
