From Charlotte Olympia's Domino clutch TO Tom Ford's Nikita sunglasses to Acne's new Ace bootie, the latest items added to The Webster's inventory reads almost identically to our personal holiday wish list. Since opening in 2009, the three-story superstore has fast become the It shopping destination in Miami— and beyond. Even more impressive is the fact that the store's success is pretty much entirely owed to one woman: Laure Heriard Dubreui, the store's CEO and co-founder. Originally from Paris, Dubreui spent several years in New York before finally heading to South Beach. “Miami is the door to South America,” she explains. “It's also so close to New York, and the weather is amazing!” But beyond the obvious year-round beach perks, Dubreui found Miami to be in need of high-end retail therapy.
Enter The Webster, a store for men and women, featuring an extremely well curated mix of merchandise from the best designers around the globe. “Because of the weather people want comfortable things. They want light fabrics,” says Dubreui of the range of looks and styles in store, adding, “Then at night people dress up a lot here, which isn't something you see so much in other places.” But in case you're looking to do something other than shop for chic swimwear, perfect dresses, and the latest couture piece everyone's drooling over (The Webster is Miami's destination for all three), we decide to ask Dubreui a few of her other favorite spots in town. Check out her picks below.
