Concierge.com's insider take:
Pablo Picasso wore sandals from this century-old Parisian leather house, which opened its Cannes location in 2007. The sandals are still done in the trademark Venezia leatheroil-tanned and infused with spectacular color and patina that looks like it came straight from an old oil painting. The shop also carries briefcases as well as loafers and oxfords, for when you have to go back to the boardroom. The staff is thoroughly knowledgeable and eager to please, but be sure to walk in with a thick wallet: Sandals start at about $850 and shoes at about $1,275.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 10 am to 7 pm.
