The shopping arcade of Cannes’ city-center that links Antibes street to La Croisette, built in 1978, has reopened late December 2015 after long years of construction work. It offers 64 stores and around ten new brands in a bright and designer setting, along with entertainment spaces such as exhibits.

“The Gray d’Albion is the centerpiece of Cannes’ attractiveness. Expanding to the world must be done through commercial attractiveness. There is no prosperity without entrepreneurs” declared the Mayor of Cannes, David Linard during the inauguration of the Gray d’Albion arcade on December 17, 2015.

“Peace, Love, World” Boutique

This is a brand-new boutique on rue d’Antibes. “Peace, Love, World” is a chic American streetwear brand that targets mostly women. Created by the American designer Alina Villasante, the brand is already well established in the United States and holds around ten boutiques in Miami, home of its headquarters.

The brand wants to send a spiritual and positive message through motivational quotes printed on its clothing, inspiring to look at the bright side. American celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez or the Kardashian sisters love these outfits.

Last May, “Peace, Love, World” opened its first boutique in France and Europe, and it didn’t pick Cannes at random… “It must be known that Cannes is the city that specifically resembles Miami in terms of image, which is the city from where the brand’s creator originates. Cannes is a party city all year long, glamorous and sunny just like Miami - explains the boutique’s Director - so it is not surprising that Alina Villasante chose to launch her first boutique at the heart of Cannes.”


The famous Italian hat brand, Borsalino, inaugurated its first boutique on the French Riviera, and the 2nd one in France, with a store on rue des Etats-Unis in Cannes, just under one year ago. Located only 50m from La Croisette, the Piedmont brand is giving itself a new impetus.
