We knew Laure Heriard Dubreuil for the Webster, the concept store she co-founded 9 years ago in Miami, which has been a very successful story with the opening of 4 others stores in the US. We’re now discovering LHD, a ready-to-wear line, with 100% summer chic vibes that Laure has just launched in France in a Pop up store at Le Bon Marché. Why a ready-to-wear line ? Because Laure has a very distinctive style : an excessive taste for colors, a vintage touch, an unconditonal love for printed and patterns… Her designers friends, the Webster clients, all whispered into her ears to go for it ! So here is the first collection, 100% inspired from Miami, a tribute to Art Deco buildings, grand hotels, local flora and fauna (you can spot frogs and crocodiles prints on the clothes), to Frank Sinatra and to the colored cocktails. A successful achievement for this chic globetrotter, a solar girl who makes clothes for the sun !
We met Laure during her stay in Paris for the LHD pop up opening at Le Bon Marché. Little interview special holidays !

Your 5 favorites cool address of Miami ?
The Standard hotel, for a dinner by the sea (one of the rare places where you can eat in front of the sea in Miami). C Madeleine’s, a big vintage clothes warehouse, classified by decades. The beach below the 5th street, a place for locals (no tourists, no bars and no hotels). The Mandolin, a mediterranean restaurant held by a greek/turkish couple, delicious and welcoming. The Faena bar, for a dive into a little mermaid experience!
