    Tluxe Blog — autumn/winter 2012

    Autumn/winter 2013 inspiration

    Here's a little something we put together earlier... just one of the moodboards for our new season collection, The Journey, which lands in stores this week. To be the first to know when the latest looks arrive to our online store, sign up to our news alerts here.


     

    Block to the future

    We know you’re a forward-thinking lot, so we’d like to give you the heads-up on a key look that will see you well into next summer and beyond. Yes, we’ve talked about colour blocking before – wearing big blocks of complementary colours – and it’s a trend that keeps on keeping on.

    One glance at the current pre-summer 2013 catwalk collections and you can see the likes of Pringle and Prada (pictured above) have opted for a chic and simple take on the trend in black and white. But why wait for summer when you can be ahead of the curve and buy now?

    The Tluxe Empire top in classic monochrome will not only bring your style bang up to date, it’ll look fantastic with your tuxedo-inspired blazer, and those wide-leg trousers we know you’re already considering investing in, if you haven’t already. Oh, and did we say it’s also 60% off, along with the rest of our winter collection? What are you waiting for?

    Why we use... merino wool and silk


     
     
     
    Continuing our occasional guide to the environmentally conscious fabrics we use at Tluxe, this week we'd like to introduce you to Australian merino wool and silk.
    Both silk and wool are the most luxurious of natual fibres. In combining them in key items such as our Amour asymmetric cardigan and La Mamounia wool jumper, which features some rather lovely silk sleeves (both pictured above), we've not only doubled the luxury factor but also your comfort. 
     
    Wool is warm, super soft and breathable, making it great for transeasonal dressing. And the lustre of silk adds just that little bit of wow, along with sharing many of the practical qualities of wool such as breathability, durability and a super soft feel. And they both drape extremely well, meaning you'll not only feel great, you'll look fantastic. Oh, and being natural fibres means both silk and wool are sustainable and therefore a better choice for the future of the planet. What's not to love?

    Style solutions for work, rest and play

    Hello and happy Monday! Today we’d like to introduce you to Josefin, our multi-tasking graphic designer who landed in Sydney a little over four years ago from Sweden. Josefin is not only a dab hand at Photoshop but also loves knitting and thinking up different ways to wear her favourite Tluxe pieces, which this week is a sparkly Claridges top and a pair of super soft navy Parco di Principi trousers.

     Play

     

    For work Josefin plays down the Claridges sequins with a Burberry trench and pair of camel ankle boots. For a casual weekend get-together a cosy Kate Sylvester jacket and a knitted colour block scarf - colour block being our top tip for updating any outfit this winter. And for after dark, a silk kimono bought all the way from Tokyo is given a bit of wow with a pair of gold wedges and some gold accessories. Et voila! One outfit for work, rest and play!

    To share the joy of Josefine’s styling expertise we’re offering 50% off the look (that’s the Claridges top and Parco di Principi trousers together) – to everyone! Enjoy.

    We’ve been busy here at Tluxe putting production together for our new spring/summer collection but not so busy that we can’t find the time to do a little cultural research.

    In a warm up to Sydney’s Biennale, which starts next week, our very own Suzie Q, production manager extraordinaire, took a weekend off recently to visit the Museum of Old and New Art down in Tasmania.

    You can see Suzie pictured above sporting a Tluxe California top, a Plaza cardigan and a pair of Perfect leggings along with a rather nice Marni handbag that she assures us is just out of shot. And yes, that’s Suzie on top of Mount Wellington near Hobart, showing just how versatile the Tluxe Plaza cardigan can be. “I was in fact, above the clouds,” says Suz.

    And the results of her cultural foray? “MONA makes for a fine weekend away. The white library (pictured above) was a definite favourite. There’s something very appealing about the simplicity of it.” Yes, she may be a little biased, but we love that Suzie is living the Tluxe philosophy of simple, understated style. Go girl.
