The Tommy Hilfiger Surf Shack Makes A Stop In Chicago

The Tommy Hilfiger Surf Shack is rolling out across the country and made a stop at Chicago’s North Avenue Beach last weekend. The bus has everything one needs for a day at the beach and more! Tommy Hilfiger’s Surf Shack carries laid back classic apparel and accessories as well as hand-picked (and really cute!) vintage pieces. Creative Director for Tommy Hilfiger North America, Trent Wisehart who is the mastermind behind the Surf Shack tour was in Chicago as well. He told me every piece was carefully selected creating this eye-popping retro-inspired collection. Along with summer collection items for men, women and children were fun little extras like beer cozys, surf board wax and even Sun In (so you can create those blond streaks this summer like we did in ’79)! The Surf Shack is a little museum you must see it if it rolls into your town.

If you missed it in Chicago last weekend the next Surf Shack stop is Toronto! Or you can go to Macys in Chicago to find some of the pieces, or online at Tommy Hilfiger where you can shop and also follow the Surf Shack!
