      INTRODUCING THE TLUXE WOMAN

      “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself”
      -Coco Chanel

      We can’t get enough of all the gorgeous Australian women out there representing our brand and are so proud to have them wearing our ethically Australian-made clothing. What sets these women apart is their strength, integrity, and the ability to be comfortable in their own style. They are supermums, career women, jet-setters and social butterflies. These are women that understand the importance of elegance, ignoring mainstream trends and confidently defining their own sense of classic and wearable luxury style.

      Here at Tluxe we all live and breathe the brand – we are designed by women, for women, with the value of ensuring that we put people and the planet first. Feel the quality, the comfort, and most importantly the pride in knowing that your purchase is contributing to the success of local business, and the promotion of ethical fair trade manufacturing. Because Tluxe is more than just beautiful garments, it’s a brand representing the desire to inject a little more love into the world and a lot less waste.

      Thanks, Cate Blanchett, Miranda Kerr, Delta Goodrem and Jen Hawkins for being a fan of our brand.

      Inspire me... Art Month Sydney

       

       

      As the first days of autumn roll in we're feeling the culture today at Tluxe HQ, and what better way to spend a rainy weekend like the one we've just experienced here in Sydney, than traipsing around the art galleries for a little inspiration. This week heralds the start of Art Month, and personally we're loving the after hours gallery openings, which usually involve a cocktail or two alongside your culture. 

      This week the galleries of Paddington and Woollahra open up Thursday, March 7 as part of a series of 'Precinct Nights', followed by art spaces in Waterloo and Alexandria on Friday, March 8. We're loving Helen Mueller's hand cut woodblock prints of a melaleuca forest at the Brenda May gallery, pictured, and Caroline Rothwell's images of endangered Australian animals made from the black carbon residue collected from exhaust pipes.

      At home with Tluxe

      Ok, so this is not exactly where we live, but it's on our wish list of dream homes and interiors. And with the cooler change in the air today, and the imminent arrival of autumn/winter collection online, we're feeling the love for the cosy fireside at Rose Seidler House. A mid-century modern gem hidden in one of the leafier parts of Sydney its original 1950s interior still feels contemporary. Architect Harry Seidler built it for his mother and its open plan design and feeling of bringing the outside indoors heralded a new aesthetic, which has become almost standard in many architect-designed Australian homes today. And the best part? You can visit Rose in all her originally furnished glory on any Sunday you like. Pure. Modernist. Magic.

      Soaking up summer

       

       

       

       In the mad rush before Christmas today we’re all about taking a little moment to enjoy all the Australian summer has to offer.  Even if it just means soaking up the warmth of these images taken at Sydney's Ryde swimming pool by photographer, Ingeborg Tyssen who spent a good deal of her early career documenting the suburbs of ‘70s Australia. You can see more of her work if you’re in Melbourne over the Christmas break, at the Monash Gallery of Art

      Today we’re feeling the love for our palm print, designed and printed right here in Sydney. A unique digital take on the trees that line many of our streets and local beaches here in Australia, when we think of palm trees we’re instantly transported to endless summer holidays spent lazing by the ocean and sipping cocktails as the sun goes down.

      That holiday feeling inspired by palm-tree lined promenades from La Croisette on the French Riveria to Beverley Hills and Waikiki has a long history, as you can see from our vintage postcard finds above.

      It also has a bright future with palms being the inspiration du jour for many of the prints gracing the spring/summer 2013 catwalks. To capture a little of that holiday spirit now and stay ahead of the fashion curve, dive into the Tluxe selection of palm print; silk T-shirts, dresses, shirts and super chic trousers. It's a sure fire way to instantly pep up your look and provide a hit of seaside glamour whether your heading to the office or hitting the pool.
