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 boutique 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.
