    Inspire me... autumn brights

    There’s nothing like a zing of colour to brighten up a dull autumn day and with the international round of catwalk shows coming to an end in Paris last week, it seems many of the world’s top designers agree bold brights such as tangerine are not just for summer. Next autumn/winter vibrant shades of orange will be big news.

    Always thinking ahead of the curve our design team here at Tluxe have included highlights of tangerine in our latest autumn/winter collection, now on sale. If you fancy being a little fashion-forward why not try out some zesty flame tones right now with our new silk California top, and fresh online today, our long sleeved jersey knit and super slinky long johns both in super-soft merino wool. 

    If you’re not into shout-out-loud colour as seen at Lanvin (pictured left, above), Calvin Klein (pictured right, above), and BCBG Max Azria (pictured centre) then we suggest turning down the volume just a little by teaming your new Tluxe top with a pair of slouchy charcoal trousers or a navy jacket. Go ahead, and brighten your day.

     

     

    We love… fashion forward accessories

    Be ahead of the fashion curve this party season and style up your favourite Tluxe dress with a few of those must-have accessories that will continue to be the star of your wardrobe well into next summer.

    If the trend for all things sheer has passed you by, show your fashion smarts with a subtle yet chic nod to the trend by sporting a sheer scarf. Perfect for summer, wear it short, snug and sexy around the neck a la the ladies at Vivienne Westwood (pictured at top) or elegantly long and flowing.

    The slim-line belt is another sure-fire winner for adding some 2012 now to a classic dress, as is the addition of a simple neck bangle - or torque in fashion-speak - which looked super sleek in polished metal on the spring catwalks at Lanvin and Tommy Hilfiger. And for the finishing touch, despite the return of the classic pump as the it-shoe of the party season (alongside the block-heeled sandal) we’re loving the single-sole wedge, a day-to-evening footwear option, which will have your relaxed take on glamour all sewn up.

    Watch me... girls on film

    One of the first bands to mix fashion models and music, Duran Duran are back (did they every go away?) with a fun ten-minute super model extravaganza, featuring all the glamour, and the original supers of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Yep, Naomi, Helena, Eva and Cindy, all play lead roles in the new music video, which has been styled to the hilt in leather, studs and crystal by Dolce and Gabbana. Pure kitsch, and pure fun.

    While we’re talking girls on film, watch out for L’Amour Fou, the feature film about Yves Saint Laurent’s life from the point of view of his partner, Pierre Bergé. And then there’s the season’s top Youtube-friendly fashion shorts, which are hitting hyper drive since the success of Lanvin’s flick featuring a dancing Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann.

    Our personal favourites so far would have to be Spike Jonze’s stop-motion animation for Olympia Le-Tan’s book-clutch bags, set in a Parisian bookstore, and for a taste of the sublime, SHOWstudio and filmmakers Tell No One’s collaboration for AnOther Magazine titled Dynamic Blooms (pictured at top), which features a post-modern mix of contemporary dance, abstract flowers and beautiful, beautiful clothing. Enjoy.

     

    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.
