​2019 Travel Resolutions: Thierry Rabotin’s Geranium & Gaura Flats

Jan 30th 2019

Easygoing fabrications are elemental in this year’s fashion forecast as they are easily adaptable in our quest to find new ways to interpret casual sensibility for varying lifestyles and environments. Our favorite Italian footwear designer, Thierry Rabotin has translated the trend for travel using a palette of technical knits and breathable wovens that carry the brand’s signature sumptuous level of comfort that you know and love. Uncomplicated silhouettes coupled with laid-back detailing strike the perfect balance in low-key styles to transport you from the TSA line to the concierge desk with ease. We at Hanig’s want to ensure that you’re prepared for takeoff with our curated selection of shoes from Thierry Rabotin’s new jet-setting collection. Fulfill your yearly travel resolutions with the Geranium and Gaura flats. Sure to become your go-to favorites, these packable styles fit snugly in your carry-on and are lightweight enough for exploring, sightseeing, and even island-hopping.

The minimalist Geranium flat is a slip-on with sculptural detailing and clean lines. Offered in navy blue or black knit, Geranium features a round toe, high throat, and a pancake heel. An asymmetrical throat seam creates an artful fold effect across the front. The Gaura flat is the designer’s laid-back contribution to the trending luxe leisure aesthetic. A woven melange upper in black or white ‘Irene’ textile is lined with a cushioned footbed and is supported for everyday wear by a bi-color wedge heel. Both shoes are constructed with nappa lined interiors and bouncy synthetic outsoles that transfer impact evenly across the bottom of the foot for everyday wear and comfort that you won’t find in most flats on the market. These Hanig’s exclusive Thierry Rabotin silhouettes are priced at an approachable $395, too, so your wallet will love them just as much as your wardrobe will!

Geranium and Gaura can be incorporated into your personal style with little effort due to their neutral color combinations and minimalist designs. Pull on a cocoon cardigan, slub knit T-shirt, and leggings when you slip into Gaura in a rush to the airport. Make a plan to ditch the sweater and switch out the leggings for a pair of cuffed jeans after your flight when you’re finally secured in your seat. Geranium’s flexible upper makes it easy to pack away in your luggage, leaving you plenty of room to fit the essentials. The body springs back into shape upon unpacking at your basecamp. Dress it up with a fit-and-flare dress and denim jacket for a youthful look that’s ready to get the party started in a foreign locale.
