From the Yu Yuan Garden to La Maison: Laure Heriard Dubreuil from The Webster put together a 24-hour guide for us

Miami’s The Webster. For me the store is a world of wonder in a city that is, in its own way, so American – and one that especially comes into its own during Art Basel. We’ve been following the woman behind The Webster, Laure Heriard Dubreuil, for a while now. Her keen sense for buying specifically for her target group is remarkable, as is her sense for collaborations in general. Her current project is taking her first to Shanghai, and then finally to Hong Kong. She’s launching a capsule collection with the department store Lane Crawford in both cities, and she’s also put together a 24-hour guide for us:
