Hu’s Wear is open for business

March 19, 2009


If you love shoes and live in Washington you have probably stepped into Hu’s Shoes on M Street in Georgetown. One of my absolutely favorite shoe boutiques to play and splurge on more contemporary designers like Barbara Bui, Alexander McQueen and Sergio Rossi. Marlene Hu Adalba, the creative genius behind Hu’s Shoes is branching out into clothing with a new shop across the street called Hu’s Wear. I was there on Tuesday for my Washingtonian magazine photo shoot but took the time to peruse the gorgeous frocks, handbags and jewelry she had in store.

This store is the for fashionista with a discerning taste for the classic, contemporary or hard to find pieces. Marlene wants to make Washingtonian women fabulous and fresh, one party frock at a time. There are tons of designers you must get to know. Megan Park, Barbara Bui, Erotokritos, Kaylee Tankus, Veronique Branquinho, Guilty Brotherhood, Mischen and many more.

There’s been a lot of buzz lately about who she is going to pop in her store. We hear there will be designer appearances, private parties and VIP hosting. Did I forget to mention the reserved parking and back entrance just for celebs and Washington’s elite? Oh yea! There’s a grand opening party on Wednesday, April 1. Go check it out.

By the way here are two pics I snapped on Monday night on my way home from a play. The dress on the left is the Megan Park dress I wore in the Washingtonian interview photo.

    I’ve been a loyal customer of Hu’s Shoes for a couple years and I was so excited when Hu’s Wear opened. The staff are so knowledgeable and inviting, and there is clear care and intention behind the items that are for sale. I hope all DC area women who are interested in fashion take a look in this store. It looks like it belongs in New York, and will save fashion hunters a trip up north to buy the latest styles. The prices aren’t that bad, and there is wide range of styles to suite many different tastes and needs–from parties, to office attire, to casual affairs. Of course, there are shoes to match right across the street. I believe that this store is the freshest, most exciting thing to happen to M St. since Cusp opened two years ago. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for seasons to come.
