The famed South Beach shopping spot opens its first West Coast outpost.

A piece of South Beach has landed at South Coast Plaza, where the stylish Webster boutique has opened its first West Coast outpost.

The new 4,000-square-foot spot features a curated assortment of men’s and women’s clothing and accessories from Valentino, Dior, Stella McCartney, Proenza Schouler, Aquazzura and Edie Parker, set amid South Beach-inspired decor (mint green marble floors, blush wool carpets, palm print chairs and pink flamingo displays).

Established in Miami in 2009 by former luxury fashion brand merchandiser Laure Heriard Dubreuil, the Webster has quickly grown into one of the most respected independent fashion retailers in the world, now with locations in South Beach, Bal Harbour, Houston and Costa Mesa.

The boutique has become a brand, too, collaborating with Target, Le Bon Marche and Eres on capsule collections and products.

Dubreuil was in the O.C. on Tuesday to celebrate the opening of her store with a lunch and fashion show, styled by Victoria Sekrier. "We're so happy to be in our new home," said the retailer, who was wearing a tropical print dress by Loewe.

Stylist/fashion consultant Erica Pelosini, with her dog Cashmere in tow, made the trip down from L.A. to fete her friend Laure. “I love the Webster. I always find something I’ve never seen before,” she said.

Statement earring designer Rebecca de Ravenel was also in the mix, wearing her limited edition flamingo pink Les Bonbons earrings made exclusively for the store.

Other guests included fashion designer JC Obando, interior designer Alexandra Von Furstenberg and her husband Dax Miller, newly-signed model Destry Spielberg, model/swimwear designer Tori Praver, South Coast Plaza partner Anton Segerstrom and his wife, Jennifer Segerstrom.
