No offense to the sisters Kardashian and their new Dash location, but the biggest boutique opening on Miami Beach this season will be the long awaited opening of The Webster's permanent location.
The boutique has operated out of a temporary location while the three French owners (Laure Hériard Dubreuil, Frederic Dechnik and Milan Vukmirovic) spent untold millions renovating the eponymous, historic Art Deco building at 1220 Collins Ave. The store has already generated buzz from GQ, V, W and other initialed magazines.
Lesley Abravanal reports that the guest list
for the June 1st opening bash will include Naomi Campbell, interestingly
coiffed singer Cassie, and Pharrell Williams. The guest list, alas, will probably not include you, as it's a private thing. Sorry.
The party will also offer guest the first look of Solange's latest collection (the sophisticated jewelry line, not the Beyonce sibling.)
Once open, the shop will carry oh-la-la worthy merchandise by the likes of Maison Martin Margiela, Alaia, Balenciaga, Lanvin and other brands I respect for their creative integrity but will never be able to afford.
