​Spring/Summer Trend Report: Ilse Jacobsen Tulip

Apr 25th 2019

The nautical trend gets a grown-up twist.

The nautical trend is a timeless one, showing up on the runways in myriad ways from year to year in new interpretations. Ilse Jacobsen progresses the perennial theme by incorporating the Danish designer’s love for her childhood home of Hornbæk into its footwear collections. This idyllic seaside village and summer resort serves as constant inspiration with its raw beauty surrounding a picturesque harbor. The label draws upon organic elements and naturally-occurring hues. This atmospheric inspiration is then translated into standout styles created with premium materials, simple lines, and luxe cushioning. The Tulip is a contemporary expression of this special take on the marine aesthetic for the everyday woman whose sense of style is clearly defined. Updated for the Spring/Summer 2019 seasons, this sneaker is the epitome of cruise essentials and a must-have travel companion for seasonal excursions.

The ever-popular Tulip sneaker rejoins the upcoming lineup in two exciting colorways (raspberry red and camelia red) and a fresh metallic finish (platino gold and gun metal) with tonal stitching. The one-piece construction is rendered in recycled microfiber for sustainability. It features scalloped embossing framing laser-cut teardrop perforations that promote optimal breathability from heel to toe. Easy slip-on styling is aided by a notched collar and a reinforced pull tab at the counter. Leather lining and removable insole cushioning yield a comfortable internal environment for day to night walking. Whipstitching attaches the upper to a lightweight rubber sole. Flex grooves and a signature tread pattern stabilizing the foot and allow it to bend naturally through each step. The Tulip sneaker’s incredible price of just $79.95 makes it even more attractive.

We’re wearing our Tulip slip-ons around the world this season. The ultra-flexible profile saves space in duffle bags for quick weekend trips or snugly into a carry-on for an extended hotel stay. You can catch us in the camelia version in London. Skinny jeans with frayed, cropped ankles, a poplin blouse, and oversized butterfly sunglasses are perfect for tea at a corner cafe. The raspberry red option is best paired with denim shorts and a boatneck top to feed your explorer spirit. A striped bucket bag makes a maritime statement that’s mature yet youthful. Sporty flavor and feminine lines mix in the platino gold teamed up with a wrap dress for a romantic dinner at a fusion restaurant. Matching metals when choosing which jewelry to wear is the way to go. Finally, we love wide-legged bottoms, a shimmering camisole, and the gun metal edition for shopping. A mini tote bag caps off the minimalist styling.
