Posted on December 25 2012
To celebrate the incredible year that 2012 turned out to be and to welcome the promise that 2013 holds, I reached out to some of the women who inspire me the most to find out their thoughts on 2012 and goals for 2013. My sixth guest is the inspiring retail entrepreneur Laure Heriard Dubreuil, co-founder of the brilliant luxury boutique The Webster. What I love most about Laure is that she’s my perfect girl’s girl: smart, super smiley, stylish, sincere and really romantic. To copy her fabulous 2013 soundtrack and see more images of her enviable style…
What did 2012 teach you?
That hard-work pays-off (but I knew it already in 2011!)!!!
Three words you would like to use more often in the New Year.
1. “J’adore!” (“I love” in French)
2. “Pura Vida” (it is the beautiful national expression in Costa Rica, meaning “Pure Life” literally but it really means “Full of Life” and is used as a greeting…)
3. “Seriously?” I used to say “I can’t believe it!” all the time but I’m going to switch it around for 2013
One person you would like to thank while 2012 is still here.
1. My Fiance Aaron Young.
2. My Family.
3. All of the people working with me, “The Webster Family”!
Someone you would like to meet in 2013.
I got to meet Martha Stewart several times as she’s a fan of The Webster and she came during Basel. I have so much admiration for her! I think I’m fulfilled for a while now….
But I’m always eager to meet creative and talented people of course and especially the next generation in Fashion including designers, editors, photographers, and stylists…
A trip you will definitely take in the new year.
I’d definitely like to take a few days off at some point to go to Big Sur, California to relax in-between the Fashion weeks with my fiance Aaron Young. It’s such a poetic place to be, above the clouds on the Pacific Ocean with Santa Lucia Mountains rising abruptly from the coast…
The first piece you will add to your wardrobe in the new year.
All of Nicolas Ghesquiere’s SS13 collection for Balenciaga!
Your top project for 2013.
Always expanding the Webster, whether that’s through branding, exclusive collaborations with designers, special projects or training my staff!
What would you like to improve about yourself in the new year?
Cooking more at home!
Your first e-mail or text of the new year. Who are you writing it to?
Wishing only the best for this New Year to all of the people I love and who won’t be with me at that time…
The dish that won’t be missing from your new year’s table.
My Grand-mother’s home-made Foie Gras!
The soundtrack to your new year.
I’ll wake-up on New Year’s day with Lou Reed “Perfect Day”, and I think Cat Power latest album “Sun” and Lou Doillon first one “Places” will be my 2013 soundtracks combined with classics like David Bowie “Let’s Dance”, George Michael “Careless Whisper”, and “Dream On” by Aerosmith to give me energy through-out the year!
