Concierge.com's insider take:
When it comes to boutique shopping, less can be more. But the Webster#8212;20,000 square feet of designer-centric temptation located in a historic Art Deco building in Miami Beach—plays by its own rules. Co-owned by three fashion world veterans who have worked with the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Hermès, and Balenciaga, the multibrand boutique has been a South Beach success story since opening in 2009. Women's and men's ready-to-wear clothing and accessories are on the first two floors (the third floor is a pop-up art gallery). The wares are a little edgier than the tiny bikinis and loud prints that Miami is known for. Cool girls come for Alexander Wang tank tops, Martin Margiela booties, and Tom Ford sunglasses, while the boys opt for Band of Outsiders and Rag & Bone. The 1939 building, once a hotel, still has the original Deco flooring and gold-and-silver striped booths, where you can sip a glass of Champagne or an espresso while bracing for the cash register tally.—Terry Ward
