Q&A

Laure Heriard Dubreuil, the CEO and founding partner of The Webster, is responsible for bringing some of the most exclusive and covetable merchandise to South Beach. And her next venture—a second location for The Webster at Bal Harbour Shops this December—will no doubt become the sartorial destination of the season. Here, we caught up with the style setter to discuss her exclusive Suno capsule collection and what’s on her Art Basel agenda.

What first attracted you to Suno?
I always loved their prints, as well as their easy but strong designs and started to support them since the beginning so it was a natural progression to work on a capsule collection with them.

When The Webster has an exclusive collection like this, how are you involved in its development?
We meet at the designer showroom and ideas start to fly! It usually starts with one design or a print—I always try to keep it simple let the expert do their work, but inject some Webster DNA into it, so it feels special four our clients.

What are you most looking forward to at Art Basel this year?
Our Webster events, like the Suno capsule launch, the Dennis Hopper original photographs exhibit, Calvin Klein and Ryan McGinley, whose work I’ve been collecting for years. Of course I’m looking forward to the actual art fair, and also the Charlotte Perriand house at the Raleigh. I actually have original Charlotte Perriand doors in my home, as well as light fixtures. And I want to make time for new exhibitions at MOCA, Rubell Family Collection, Gallery Diet and more.

Can you give us a preview of what you'll have in store at Webster Bal Harbour?
Expect a very tightly edited selection from Chanel, Celine, Givenchy, Saint Laurent, Alaïa and younger designers like Cedric Charlier, Aurelie Bidermann, Maison Rabih Kairouz, Olympia Le Tan, and of course more exclusive capsule collections like we have at the flagship store.

Why was Bal Harbour the ideal place for The Webster to open its second location?
The Bal Harbor shops was my first shopping experience in Miami. It is the American Dream and a very luxurious experience. So when the opportunity came up, it felt very organic.

Will the new store have a similar feel in its decor and design?
Very similar in feel. The same color palette, art, vintage wallpaper and made-to-measure designer furniture. We’re going for the same living room feel where you want to spend your day and consider it your dream walk-in closet.

Any plans to bring children's clothes into the mix?
I already designed a little girl’s collection for Target which was such an amazing experience! I am now expecting a little boy of my own, and I spend my life at Bonpoint at Bal Harbour. So, not in the near future, but why not, never say never.
