      Behind the scenes of the Tluxe campaign

       

      Annabella signals that she's ok, even while being eaten alive by mosquitos. 

      She wears the California silk top and Raffles cotton hareem trousers.

      The lovely Margaux Fraisse reveals there's more to her talents than photography and graphic design. 

       

       

      Our illustrious creative director takes cover from the midday sun. 


      By now most of you would’ve seen our debut film on our home page presenting the Tluxe Autumn/Winter 2012 collection, Perpetual Motion.

      Shot by director Imogen Prado with campaign stills by Margaux Fraisse, our mini-movie stars New Zealand model and self-confessed nature-girl, Annabella Barber. Above, we've included a few behind-the-scenes shots of our team hard at work in the mosquito-infested wilds of Bronte Gully, near Sydney's Bronte Beach.

      The initial concept for the film stems from an image of a white owl in mid-flight, which our creative director, Rebecca Powell came across while researching the inspiration for the new Autumn/Winter 2012 range. “When it came to shooting the film we liked the idea that the fluidity of the bird’s movement when captured in slow motion could be echoed in the flow a cape, one of our key pieces for Winter 2012,” explains Rebecca.

      “We built a simple narrative around the journey of a girl through nature, travelling from the forest to the ocean and being enchanted by the beauty she sees along the way. In the finale she swirls and disappears in a flurry of white feathers, which is a reference to the white owl but also symbolises purity and freedom. 

      “In ancient Celtic times a white owl was synonymous with a Goddess so the story could also be seen as the journey of a girl as she changes into a woman. In the end, it’s a celebration of the beauty of nature, which is reflected in the clothes by our use of natural fabrics, such as silk, wool, and organic cotton.”

      Read me... Diana Vreeland

      Fashion legend and ex-American Harpers Bazaar editor, Diana Vreeland (1903-1989) has been celebrated in a recently released book, The Eye Has to Travel, which hails the high priestess of style as an enduring icon whose influence shaped the face of fashion, beauty, art, publishing and culture. Illustrations, original magazine spreads and famous photographs reveal Vreeland’s vision and her impressive ability to invent and discover fashion ideas, designers, personalities and photographers. If you didn't know already, Vreeland is also the queen of fashion one-liners - the precursor to the current king of fashion quips, Karl Lagerfeld. Keep an eye out for the documentary film version of this book, to be released next year.

      Dance into the week... with Charlotte and Alber

      We’re loving the new dance-themed films coming our way right now. One of our favourite French film stars, the effortlessly cool Charlotte Gainsbourg, isn’t afraid to shake her groove thing in the music video for her debut single, Terrible Angels on what will be her fourth album, Stage Whisper out this November. 

      And while there’s been plenty of acclaim around the new film Pina by director Wim Wenders on the late dance choreographer Pina Bausch, the prize for the most entertaining cinematic moves this month arrives care of legendary Lanvin designer, Alber Elbaz.

      In what must be a first for a luxury brand, Elbaz and models including Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann, dispense of the usual seductive posing of designer campaigns for an informal, tongue-in-cheek dance routine. We hope it makes you smile as much as we did.
