From always up-to-date leggings to colored and printed tights and socks to seasonal boot toppers and leg warmers, HUE brings a light-hearted approach to fashion that makes it easy to effortlessly express one’s personal style. Hue is sold in more than 3,100 stores globally and on www.hue.com.
The HUE Global Design Discovery Program aims to introduce new up and coming fashion designers, giving HUE‘s customers the opportunity to discover new talent. For Fall 2015 inaugural season, the program features designers New York City-based Timo Weiland and Shanghai-based Helen Lee and gives consumers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at their inspiration, creative process and final product through sketches, videos and photos on social media.
