HELLO SUNSHINE: Laure Heriard Dubreuil has designed a 12-piece collection for Eres. “I was inspired by Miami’s sunshine,” said Heriard Dubreuil. The founder and chief executive officer of The Webster Miami worked closely with the head of Eres’ studio, Marie-Paule Minchelli, to design the line, which has eight suits, two beachwear pieces, a clutch and a sarong.
“One print is inspired by sun umbrellas of the Fifties and Arts Deco pastel colors,” explained Heriard Dubreuil. “For the other one, I was inspired by the Fairchild Botanic Garden in Miami and its gorgeous tropical flowers. In addition, there are two plain colors: pink flamingo and anise green.”

The collection is to make its debut at The Webster Miami during Art Basel in early December, before rolling out to Eres stores in February 2015.
