Art Deco haven: The Webster Miami Beach
A special take on fashion
A handful of retail stores reflect an owner’s heart and soul — not the homogenized safe path of a phalanx of buyers, but a single owner’s direction, desire and iron will. The Webster in Miami Beach is one such institution. And institution it is, with scores of gallerists, art collectors and arriviste Russians beating a fashionable path to The Webster’s door during Miami Basel. Or perhaps the Russians just fly in because it’s Tuesday…
Regardless, owner, founder, buyer and fashion visionary Laure Heriard Dubreuil has garnered press from every national and international publication, and has amazed too many pop-star, movie-star and designer clients to name. Why all this lead-up? It’s to tell you, you lucky readers living in Houston, that The Webster will open its first outpost outside of Miami in a special jewel box at the Galleria Houston in November, which Laure will fill with her personal interpretation of top designers for men and women, accessories, shoes and jewelry.
