Miami-based retailer The Webster has opened at The Galleria in Houston, Texas, the retailer’s first location outside of Florida. The 5,000-square-foot freestanding building , complete with its dedicated valet service, is referred to as the “Jewel Box”. The boutique offers a unique selection of various men’s, women’s and accessory brands including Alexander Wang, Givenchy, Pierre Hardy, Saint Laurent, Valentino and many more.

Design elements from the Webster’s existing Miami and Bal Harbour stores have been incorporated into this new location, which features a mint quartzite entry, signature ‘Webster brown’ walls and blush wool carpet throughout. Additional custom details include clothing racks featuring a combination of Rosso Levanto marble and antique brass; there is also luxurious vintage wallpaper, a mix of custom and antique furniture, artwork from Houston native artist Max Snow, and photography from Ellen von Unwerth and Dennis Hopper.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to open my third location, and first outside of Florida, at The Galleria,” said The Webster CEO and founder Laure Heriard Dubreuil. “This is truly a labor of love and I look forward to sharing my unique and personal perspective on both art and fashion with the city of Houston. I couldn’t be happier to partner with Simon Property Group on creating this very special jewel box of a boutique in such a beautiful city.”
