      Eco tip of the week… Tluxe bamboo


      IMAGE: Giant Bamboo Japan by Josef Hoflehner

      The fashion industry can leave a pretty hefty environmental footprint from the chemicals used in making fabrics to the landfill required for all those clothes that wear out. Here at Tluxe we’ve tried to lessen our impact on the planet with the creation of an Essentials range, which we’ve launched this season, and plan to slowly and quietly expand on in months to come.

       The aim is to provide you with quality pieces in sustainable fabrics, which will become the core building blocks of your wardrobe. It’s all about the perfect T-shirt, the perfect skirt, or the perfect pair of leggings.

      Finding the most flattering fit and combining it with a certain timeless style is a key part of the formula for our Essentials range. So too is our focus on using high quality fabrics such as bamboo, which has a reputation for being the world's most renewable material due to it’s fast-growing nature and ability to thrive without the use of chemical fertilisers or pesticides.

      Just take a look at our wear-them-forever, super-soft and super-comfortable bamboo tube pencil skirt and maxi tube skirt. By choosing organic fibres or sustainable fabrics you’re doing your bit in contributing to a brighter, chemical-free future, and there's no doubt that's a good thing.

      The insider... Tluxe summer inspiration

      The deliciously cooling afternoon thunderstorms we’ve been experiencing here in Sydney of late has called to mind a few of the inspirational images we put together for the current Tluxe summer collection (pictured above), Basic Elements.

      The deep, dark colours of the sea and sky when the heat of the day gives way to the rolling charcoal tones of an afternoon storm was our starting point for the season’s colour palette, shot through with accents of sunshine yellow - as you can see in our carefully engineered striped Suzanne C tee and Rebecca P maxi dress, and the moody sky print on our Isabel M and Vanessa B dresses. For more inspiration of the pictorial kind, we’d like to direct you to one of our favourite resources for beautiful imagery, ffffound.com. We also love thisisnthappiness.com, and arts and crafts, among many, many others. Go ahead, take some time out this week, even if just for a few minutes and, delight your senses.

      Mamma moment... Cate Blanchett






      Environmentalist and award-winning actress Cate Blanchett, one of Sydney’s more stylish mums about town, is also one of our favourite local fashion heroes both on and off the red carpet. We love her polished red tailored look for the recent Armani show in Paris (pictured above), as much as the way she styles her hoodies and Tluxe-style track pants while out shopping round town, or with her boys, Dashiell, Roman and Ignatius Martin, in tow. Never shy of mixing a little edgy style with traditional glamour, Cate's red carpet looks while pregnant - such as the teal caftan above - would have to go down as some of the more drop-dead gorgeous mamma moments in Hollywood. Rock on Cate.
