The Webster Los Angeles to be Designed by David Adjaye
Opens January 2020
LOS ANGELES (November 20 2020) – The Webster, the luxury multi-brand retailer, announced today
that their new flagship opening in Los Angeles will be designed by the acclaimed architect Sir David
Adjaye OBE, his first project in California.
The 11,000 square feet pink concrete storefront will be located on the corner of Beverly Boulevard
and San Vicente Boulevard as a part of the newly reimagined Beverly Center. The Webster LA will be
home to over 100 brands for men, women, accessories, fine jewelry, children and the newly launched
home collection. This will be the retailer’s seventh location in the United States.
Laure Heriard Dubreuil, Founder and Creative Director commented: “It is such an honor to work with
David, I have been a fan of his work for such a long time. To have him bring The Webster LA to life is
an absolute dream! Each one of our locations has its own identity from the design of the store down
to the creatively curated selection of products that furnish the rails and shelves. David truly captured
the essence of The Webster DNA and projected it into the future with this new beautiful iteration of The
Webster! I am so thrilled to embark upon this new journey here in Los Angeles."
In true The Webster fashion, the store will make its presence in Los Angeles known with a series of
exclusive products and exciting activations from the moment the doors open. It will house brands such
as Bottega Veneta, Burberry, Chloe, Dior, Gucci, Loewe, Paco Rabanne, Palm Angeles, Proenza
Schouler, Rhude, Valentino, Vetements and Versace.
“Working with Laure and The Webster was a really unique client experience. She gave us a lot of
freedom and was very trusting throughout the process which yielded a distinctive form that she can be
free with to re-sculpt for various collections or new art programming.” Says David Adjaye
“David Adjaye is widely considered one of today’s most influential and respected architects,” said
William S. Taubman, chief operating officer, Taubman. “His vision for The Webster at Beverly Center
will undoubtedly create an iconic new corner in LA, and a wonderful shopper environment for this
special luxury destination.”
The Webster Los Angeles is set to open early January 2020 at 8500 Beverly Boulevard. The store will
have a dedicated entrance and private valet parking available.

About The Webster:
Laure Heriard Dubreuil opened The Webster’s flagship location in 2009 at 1220 Collins Avenue in
South Beach, Miami. Originally the Webster Hotel, the 20,000 square-foot Art Deco building was built
in 1939 by architect Henry Hohauser. Heriard Dubreuil, who grew up in Paris and worked as a top
merchandiser for Balenciaga and Yves Saint Laurent before founding The Webster, kept the name but
reimagined the three-story interior as a women’s and men’s multibrand luxury retailer designed with
vibrant intimacy to resemble a residential space.
A decade after the Miami flagship opened, The Webster has expanded to four additional locations in
Bal Harbour, Houston, Costa Mesa and New York City, as well as an outlet at Sawgrass Mills. Each
store has its own distinctive energy, unified by Heriard Dubreuil’s uncompromising vision of good
energy, good fashion, good fun and the sunny spirit of Miami. The Webster’s logo is a pink flamingo.
The retailer has become a destination for exclusive collaborations with brands such as Paco Rabanne,
Off-White and Fenty, as well as permanent partnerships with David Mallett and Joanna Czech, who
operate studios out of The Webster’s SoHo location.
The Webster’s world is ever growing and changing.
