NEW YORK, Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Webster is pleased to announce the opening of its fourth boutique. Located at The Galleria in Houston, Texas, the 5,000 square foot, newly constructed, freestanding building with its own, dedicated valet service, is referred to as the "Jewel Box".

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to open my fourth location, and first outside of Florida, at The Galleria. 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," said Laure Heriard Dubreuil.

The boutique offers a refined and unique selection of various men's, women's and accessory brands including Alexander Wang, Aurelie Bidermann, Chloe, Givenchy, Pierre Hardy, Maison Rabih Kayrouz, Olympia Le Tan, Rosie Assoulin, Sonia Rykiel, Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, Valentino and many more. This location's collection of luxury fashion houses mixed with emerging designers recreates The Webster DNA, providing a one-of-a-kind retail experience.

Design elements from the Miami and Bal Harbour stores have been incorporated into this new location featuring 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. The decor integrates the ambiance of an opulent living room-like space or the ultimate walk-in closet, complete with luxurious vintage wallpaper, a mix of custom and antique furniture and artwork from Houston native artist Max Snow.  Photography from Ellen von Unwerth and Dennis Hopper also features prominently.

"We are excited to be able to share the unique point of view offered by The Webster where it joins 75 other exclusive to market brands found only at The Galleria," said Vicki Hanor, Simon's Managing Director of Luxury Leasing.  "With its curated array of brands and products, The Webster's cutting-edge fashion aesthetic is sure to appeal to Houston's most discerning shoppers."
