      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.

      The soundtrack to your week...

       

      Balmy spring evenings, strolling home with the doors to people's homes open, the scent of barbeques in the air, and the sound of music escaping onto the tree-lined streets. Ahh, it's been a magic long weekend here in Sydney hasn't it? As we prepare for the week ahead we're watching the sun set, that incredible full moon rise, and listening to the sounds of The Cinematic Orchestra. Have a lovely evening friends, and a fantastic week ahead. Much love, Tluxe. 

      What to wear gallery hopping

        

       

       

       

       

      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.

       

      We love... Tux Lux

        

      The Tluxe tux and YSL's Le Smoking look.

      This week, we’re watching Anna Wintour’s Obama campaign and perusing Karl Lagerfeld’s new book, Little Black Jacket while wearing our tuxedo-inspired Chelsea shirt. As the great Karl himself says, “Who can live without black clothes?". Personally we find the Chelsea a great way to add a little tux lux to a relaxed, casual look without resorting to the full tailored number a la YSL’s original Le Smoking (pictured above). We’ve styled it with our Raffles trousers but you can team yours with a pair of high waist, wide-leg pants for a touch of Bianca Jagger, or add dark skinny jeans, heels and a blazer in white or a contrast colour for a little hot, new, now.

      A little autumn inspiration...

       

      We thought we’d share a few images that inspired us for our current autumn/winter collection, Perpetual Motion. This is just one of the mood boards, which we put together right at the concept stage of design when we’re thinking about colour, and how the tones we find in art, nature, and just about anything we see around us, might influence our final designs. Above we have an image of the perpetual motion of nature in the form of flowing lava; a dark, meditative drawing by one of our favourite artists, Anish Kapoor; and a painting by Jennis Li Cheng from her aptly titled, Have a Nice Day series. Enjoy.
