    This is the week, people, that our new autumn/winter collection lands online! Now’s the time to update your wardrobe with a hint of cool blue teal, the relaxed silhouette of a printed shift dress, the hot new shape of our cropped trousers, or the cocooning softness of one of this season’s essential pieces, the easy-to-wear cape

    Made from pure Australian wool and trimmed with the lux touch of silk, we pride ourselves that our cape, like the rest of our collection, is made and designed wholly in Australia from natural, sustainable fabrics. This means it not only feels amazing against your skin, it supports local makers and industry, and with less air miles to travel from our studio to your wardrobe, ensures we leave as little an imprint on our environment as possible so you can look great and feel great too.

    Be the first to know when new styles - such as our pure wool cape - land, enjoy up-to-the-minute styling tips and exclusive offers by signing up to our newsletter here. Happy days.

    Adis Ababa trousers (top) and Saffron top (above), new for autumn/winter 2013

    We're hugely excited to announce the arrival of our new collection for autumn/winter 2013, The Journey, which hits stores next week and our online shop in mid-February.

    Inspired by trips to exotic locations and featuring a jewel-like colour palette of turquoise, teal, ruby red and dark, inky indigo we're particularly proud of our new Australian-designed, tribal-influenced print, pictured above in our Adis Ababa trousers.

    "We've looked inland, to the rich, earthy colours of Australia's outback this season, as a change to our usual coastal influences," explains Tluxe creative director, Rebecca Powell. "Our tribal dance print is a fusion of native cultural references from Indonesian Batik to African-inspired pattern, and the ancient linear artworks of Australia’s indigenous tribes.”

    Another of our favourite pieces in the new collection is our cowl-back Saffron top, which is designed to be layered, Bedouin-like, with swathes of luxurious, natural fabrics. Autumn/winter is all about layering so this season we’ll be providing you with plenty of styling tips on how to get the most out of the key pieces in the new Tluxe collection. Watch this space!


    Secret Sydney...

     

      

     

     

    There's more to Sydney than Bondi and the Harbour Bridge and today we'd like to share with you one of our favourite harbourside hideaways, Wendy Whiteley's garden. It's amazing on many levels: the water views, made famous by Wendy's late husband, Brett Whiteley's paintings; the sculptures dotted along the winding, leafy pathways; and the fact that Wendy has created this paradise herself, with a little help from a few volunteers and gardeners, on disused railway land, simply because she was tired of overlooking the weeds and rubbish, which formerly littered the site (her house is on the hill above the park, the one with the turret). And yes, it's still owned by the railway, and after many years, Wendy can still be seen working in the garden, which she admits has become a sort of obsession. To discover this magic little hideaway for yourself, simply follow the footpath from Luna Park in North Sydney, along the harbour to Lavendar Bay and turn right. And don't forget to take a picnic basket. Enjoy.

    New Year, new ideas...

     

    Happy New Year you lovely people! Hope you're all enjoying one of our best summers ever - and are finding plenty of sartorial inspiration in our January sale. For those of you who may feel the need to escape the heat (41 degrees expected in Sydney tomorrow!), skip the crowds at the beach for a little cultural inspiration in the air-conditioned coolness of Sydney's MCA and the fantastic Anish Kapoor exhibition, which is on now until April 1st. Kapoor is one of our personal all-time favourite artists and this is a chance to immerse yourself in the perception-changing colour of his work up close. So do don't miss it!

    Soundtrack to the week...

     

    Today we're enjoying the cool after a hot and steamy Sydney weekend. We're wearing one of our super fine organic cotton Portofino T-shirts with a pair of Palm print silk trousers while mostly listening to the dulcet tones of Terry Callier, which is sitting so well with the laid-back summer vibe we're feeling at the moment we're making his classic 1972 album, What Colour is Love, our soundtrack to the week. Enjoy.
