    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.

     

    High summer colour inspiration

       


      

     

     

     

    Today we're excited to announce that our new colours for high summer have just landed on the site! Inspired by the cobalt blue, gunmetal grey and flame orange tones of beachside sunsets, and, for those of you who prefer the tranquility of early morning, we’ve included some inspirational images of Bondi beach at sunrise, with thanks to photographer Eugene Tan.

    This summer here at Tluxe we've created our very own take on the classic white oversized shirt in cool, crisp and planet-friendly woven organic cotton. This stolen-from-your-boyfriend style is the perfect beach cover-up, great for throwing over a bikini while having the added benefit of protecting your skin from the harshness of the midday sun. 

    We’re also loving the clean, simple styling ideas for boyfriend shirts that we’ve been seeing via the street style shots from around the world over the last few weeks, pictured above. Update your wardrobe with a little 2012 now by picking up your own oversized white shirt from our online store today – but be quick, this is a classic that simply flies off the rails.

    Inspire me... new year, new trends

    The perfect summer hat: Ann Demeulemeester sun hat The perfect sunglasses: Persol Summer 2012 footwear: Simona Vanth

    Welcome 2012! While many of our local readers are still enjoying their summer holidays we’d thought we’d offer a few tips for keeping cool, and of-the-moment whether you’re lazing by the pool or soaking up the sun’s rays by the beach.

    The perfect summer hat:  We say stick with the classics and make it a wide-brimmed Fedora or floppy 70s-inspired sunhat a la Ann Demeulemeester's offering above – or if you appreciate the quality of handmade tradition, take a look at these beautiful Panama numbers, all the way from Ecuador.

    Moving on from the see-it-everywhere Trilby, these handmade Fedoras have a certain chic sensibility in keeping with our very own Tluxe take on relaxed glamour with a Studio 54-style twist. And let’s face it, in the Australian sun a wide-brimmed hat is so much more than just a style investment. It will quite literally, save your skin.

    The perfect sunglasses: Persols. Classic Italian heritage. Steve McQueen. Now in cool coloured frames. Need we say more?

    2012 footwear: The most down-to-earth footwear trend for this summer, and next, is all about mixing a few found objects from your beachcombing with the look of raw leather, hammered metal, and earthy, rough-edged textures. We just love the look of these sandals from young Italian shoe designer, Simona Vanth.
