Smart, Casual Scandinavian Luxury with the Ilse Jacobsen Tulip
Jun 11th 2018
As spring is winding down and we start transitioning to summer, it’s time to think about the ultimate go-to shoe! This season we’re craving something with an easy style, contemporary aesthetic, and the flexible support that shoe lovers desire. What you need in your closet is a stylish flat that can withstand hours walking the corridors of an art museum or just enjoying vanilla ice cream at
a park bench on a sunny afternoon. So, we decided to look to Danish brand Ilse Jacobsen to bring us a signature summer style fit for season-long fun and leisure.
For over two decades, Ilse Jacobsen has drawn inspiration from the picturesque seaside resort town of Hornbæk. Sitting on the north coast of Sjælland, the island was originally a small fishing village around a natural harbor.
In the 19th and 20th centuries, Hornbæk became famous as a top destination for artists and honeymooners. Ilse Jacobsen embraces the port’s landscape and culture to create a luxury brand highlighted by maritime hues and elemental silhouettes modeled after Scandinavian urban living.
It is for all of these reasons that we at Hanig’s are thrilled to introduce the super-cool Tulip sneaker in our
newest collection. This casual shoe is designed with a laser-cut upper with a notched vamp for maximum
he ultra-flexible white sole supports natural movement of the foot, while the cushioned footbed and sawtooth sole lend themselves to all-day comfort. Available in on-trend mule and classic sneaker silhouettes, the charming Tulip has been re-imagined in eight fabulous colors and finishes ranging from neutral to poppy. Choose from feminine adobe rose pink, smoky grey, timeless black, rich latte brown, nautical navy blue, metallic copper and silver, and punchy raspberry red. This everyday style fits into your closet with ease and can adapt to any personal style. Slip into the sneaker version with a relaxed T-shirt and paper-bag culotte shorts for a day of hot dogs and craft beer at the baseball field. Pair the mule with a loose-fitting jersey knit jumpsuit for a refreshing, sporty look that doesn’t skimp on comfort on a laid-back date night. Our favorite way to wear either version is on vacation, though. Tulip covers all of the bases with its ease of wearability in dry and wet climates.
Whether you’re sipping on a glass of merlot in Palermo, Italy or headed to a French Polynesian beach, Ilse Jacobsen’s Tulip is a summer getaway must-have. Save room in your suitcase for travel keepsakes when you bring along the trendy, all-encompassing Tulip to team with any look. You’ll be ready for just about any activity and cut down on time choosing your daily outfit when you make sure to pack the Ilse Jacobsen Tulip in your carry-on bag.
