Our Spring Trunk Show season is underway, and as always, it is such a pleasure to welcome shirtmaker extraordinaire Hinson Wu to Dovecote for a few days. In a previous post this Fall(thinking we might include a link to the previous post here), you may recall my expounding on our love affair with Hinson – his superb craftsmanship, custom-like fit, attention to detail, exquisite fabrics and on and on and on. It is no secret that we LOVE this collection, and look to him as our most important resource for classic, everyday luxe shirting.

As I collected my thoughts in preparation for NY market a few weeks ago, I was thinking about Hinson and wondered what he might have up his sleeve for the coming season. I mean, once you have perfected perfection in every basic silhouette for almost every body type….what next? We are a fickle lot – always looking for the next best thing – so growth and change seem to be a requirement if one expects to remain the object of our affection. We are a tough crowd!fabric positions for hinson wu shirt

I noticed early on in our relationship that Hinson was an astute listener. He works his own trunk shows, engages with customers, asks lots of questions, values every opinion and returns to his drawing board with a wealth of input as he charts his next collection – and it shows! Don’t be surprised to see something you may have chatted about coming to fruition the following season!daneen and hinson wu

Hinson continues to “Wu” us, delivering so much newness in his amazing Spring20 collection! The two standouts for me: (1) Hinson’s extraordinary “Wash, Dry and Go” Linens – you will not believe this fabrication!!!….game-changing for linen loversand (2) Hinson’s ingenious combination of luxe woven components with luxe knit features – think of a tunic with a luxe cotton woven front and luxe knit jersey sleeves and back and you have just met “Lizette” – talk about comfort and wearability! My first purchase this Spring!hinson wu meghan shirt at dovecote
