It was in November 2019 that the Cap 3000 shopping center in Saint-Laurent-du-Var (Alpes-Maritimes) presented a whole new face turned to the sea, after a four-year renovation-extension that cost 650 million euros. euros. But then there was missing a last space that had not yet opened to the public, “the Corso”, a wing dedicated to premium, luxury and designer brands inaugurated on July 19.
Covering 8,000 square meters, “le Corso” accommodates around forty brands in this shopping center managed by Altarea Commerce. Some had already opened their doors, such as Maison Christian Dior (perfumes), Lancel, Mauboussin, Pablo or even Reiko.
Twenty new boutiques are unveiled in July and August: include Vanessa Bruno, Scotch & Soda, Falconeri, Pinko, Gérard Darel and Katie Jacobson in the women’s ready-to-wear department, while Hugo Boss, De Fursac or JM Weston s flourish in men’s fashion.
To this must be added Auberi and APM Monaco in the jewelry / watchmaking segment, Fratelli Barri (high-end furniture) as well as Joseph Restaurant and Fauchon on the food side. A second-hand luxury concept store, called Corso Collector, is also due to open soon.
With a large ceiling height, this space with sea view, all in curves, was signed by the designer agency Jouin Manku, which has chosen to combine noble materials such as Murano glass, terrazzo black and brass blades. “Its sensual lines evoke the movements and reflections of water”, exhibits the shopping center which emerged from the ground in 1969 near Nice.
A new offer to seduce the upscale clientele of the Riviera, but also international visitors, who have been few in recent months, but whom the shopping center hopes to attract again if health restrictions still allow it.
