The Webster, Bal Harbour Shops

By Amanda Eberstein

“I created Z.d.G. in the spirit of family—sharing some of our best kept secrets from among Europe’s finest artisans,” says Zoë de Givenchy, who launched her home and tabletop line three years ago. “The designs we make are pieces I wanted for my own homes.” Although born in Australia, the taste-making entrepreneur got a deep dive into French style and refinement when she married the nephew of the late, great couturier Hubert de Givenchy, who she remained close with until his death in 2018 at the age of 91. “All of the artisans with whom we work I know personally,” she says of the collection, which ranges from traditional French pottery and Italian ceramics to cutlery. “They are all family businesses, with generations of skill and passion for their craft.” The jet-setting mother of two splits her time between Paris, LA, and the Bahamas, often popping over to Miami for dinner and a little shopping when on the island. “I adore the color and Latin joie de vivre in Miami. That tropical evening heat is so alluring.”

What shops do you love to visit in Bal Harbour?
Bal Harbour has long been one of my favorite places to shop in the world. I love to stop by Santa Maria Novella, Diptyque, 100% Capri, Assouline, Aquazzura, and Buccellati. And I always visit The Webster—its founder, Laure Hériard Dubreuil, is one of my best friends. I think every brightly colored piece in my wardrobe is from there.

What is your favorite Bal Harbour restaurant, and what are your go-to dishes?
Linguine Vongole, Palmito and Parmigiano and Scallopini Piccanti at Carpaccio.

What are some of the fashion pieces you are coveting for spring?
Spring has me hankering for bangles from Buccellati, kaftans from newly discovered Turkish brand Haremlique, and candy-colored satin mules from Roger Vivier. For evenings, sequins and drama, and I love the Olympia Sandal by Aquazzura—designed by my friend Olympia of Greece.

How would you describe your personal style and aesthetic?
Classic, with a twist. I am a traditionalist at heart. I adore beautiful fabrics and refined tailoring, but I love to have fun with fashion and color for evenings and resort dressing.

What is your go-to outfit for daytime?
Currently, flared jeans, Chanel flats, and a perfect white T-shirt with a short blazer.

How does your style differ between Los Angeles, Paris, and Miami?
In LA, I tend to be more relaxed and pair most things with denim or flats. But always with a European twist—jeans with Venetian slippers or a Chloe maxi dress with clogs and beautiful accessories. We head to Malibu on the weekends, and there is a different mood. I wear denim shirts and oversized cashmere from Loro Piana with Birkenstocks or cowboy boots. In Paris, I wear loafers and a classic Burberry trench with most things as I am walking everywhere. I can be more glamourous at night. And I wear a lot more color and a lot less in Miami!

What is your ideal outfit for an evening out?
A gorgeous dress from a brand like Givenchy or Galvan with delicate strappy heels or flats, always.
