The number of creative happenings crammed onto the social calendar at Art Basel in Miami seems to grow exponentially each year, yet there is one place in the city that stylish art enthusiasts will always find time to visit, and that’s the Webster . “The gallerists will come by on Monday to check out what’s in store first,” says boutique CEO and cofounder Laure Hériard Dubreuil, “because they know it might be gone by the end of the week.” With a slew of special capsule collections on the shop floor especially for the fair, we asked expecting mom Dubreuil to pick the pieces she would put aside for the whirlwind of upcoming parties and exhibit openings. Here, some of her favorites and how she’d coordinate them with a busy Art Basel agenda.
1. “My favorite T-shirt from the Gap X Visionaire collaboration is the one with Maurizio Cattelan’s portrait of Linda Evangelista. I would buy it in a size XL and wear it as a minidress with flats for day. It’s a great look to wear to the fair, since it looks like it could have come right off the gallery wall.”
2. “I really like the cut-outs on this dress (pictured above), which is part of a capsule collection designed by Suno especially for the Webster. I can show off my tan a little that way. I’d wear it with a sparkling Eddie Borgo five-finger ring to the dinner for the opening of Charlotte Perriand’s house on the beach. We’re lucky the weather is so good here because lots of events can be taken outside.”
3. “I don’t like to carry a heavy bag during Basel because you’re on your feet all day, so Olympia Le-Tan Webster’s Dictionary clutch will be with me all week. I’ll definitely bring it along to the Tracey Emin opening at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami.”
4. “The Rubell Family Collection is having an exhibit of Chinese art and a red Anthony Vaccarello dress would be perfect for the opening, given that red has such powerful significance in Chinese culture.”
5. “Ligia Dias makes incredibly creative jewelry, her moules-frites necklaces, for example, are so fun. There is a local art space called Gallery Diet and I think it would be pretty ironic to stop by wearing one of her foodie pieces.”
