The luxe 14th Street Boutique feels right at home in Georgetown. By Sarah Zlotnick

Carrying some of the edgiest, artsiest brands in a not-fully-established neighborhood, 14th Street clothing and furniture boutique Muléh has always felt a little like an ahead-of-its-time anomaly to us. Don’t get us wrong—we love it for for that (this writer may or may not live in said not-fully-established neighborhood). But we also occasionally wonder whether it would benefit more from the affluent foot traffic it’d see in a place like design-conscious Cady’s Alley.

Well, now we can find out for sure. After opening a second location in New York City, Muléh also took over the old Alessi space across from Kafe Leopold. Clothing and accessory-wise, the 670-square-foot space features a tightly edited mix of Vivienne Westwood’s Anglomania, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and By Malene Birger. There’s also killer jewelry by Lizzie Fortunato and furniture, lighting, and home accessories from Kenneth Cobonpue, Hive, and Ango.

Yes, the stuff is pricey, but at least when it’s being sold caddy-corner to Relish there’s finally some context for it. Overall, it’s a smart move—and a smart place to shop for luxury holiday finds.

3319 Cady’s Alley, NW. Open Monday through Saturday 10 to 6, Sunday 11 to 5, through April 30, 2013.
