I love local stores that offer different designs,content and styles. Each cultures has its own set of standards. Monte-Carlo is special like a jewel.
Monte-Carlo seems to be an anomaly because there are people from all over the globe that come to reside in this amazing small principality.
The stores whether international high fashion chains or local enterprises are innovative with the products they carry.
On of my favorites is a shoe store called FABRI located on 31 boulevard de Moulin in Monte-Carlo. FABRI carries their private label shoes in addition to Kenzo, Missoni, Sonia Rykiel and Givenchy to name a few.
Fabri is located on the main local shopping street away from all the tourist mayhem. Lots of local stores, cafes and galleries.
The owner Vida is really sweet and accommodating always willing to bring in sizes from her other stores in Nice and Cannes if she is out of a certain size or model. She is very en trend with her selection at reasonable prices.
If in Monte-Carlo give them a visit.
