    Tluxe Blog — colour block

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Inspire me... the tonal colour block

    This autumn we’re more about evolution than revolution. With this in mind we’ve taken last season’s trend for wearing vibrant blocks of colour and turned it into a subtler look by using tones of charcoal and navy blue.  We’ve also taken the hard work out of matching individual colours for you by combining them all into one piece. Cue our W t-shirt, Clarence maxi-dress, and One Aldwych pencil skirt.

    And with our choice of blues a hit at the most recent round of catwalk shows for next autumn/winter, as seen above at Anne Valerie Hash (right) and Gianfranco Ferre (left), the Tluxe take on a more subtle, tonal colour block is a fashion-forward look that’ll see you well into next year and beyond.
