      Style solutions for work, rest and play

      Hello and happy Monday! Today we’d like to introduce you to Josefin, our multi-tasking graphic designer who landed in Sydney a little over four years ago from Sweden. Josefin is not only a dab hand at Photoshop but also loves knitting and thinking up different ways to wear her favourite Tluxe pieces, which this week is a sparkly Claridges top and a pair of super soft navy Parco di Principi trousers.

      For work Josefin plays down the Claridges sequins with a Burberry trench and pair of camel ankle boots. For a casual weekend get-together a cosy Kate Sylvester jacket and a knitted colour block scarf - colour block being our top tip for updating any outfit this winter. And for after dark, a silk kimono bought all the way from Tokyo is given a bit of wow with a pair of gold wedges and some gold accessories. Et voila! One outfit for work, rest and play!

      To share the joy of Josefine’s styling expertise we’re offering 50% off the look (that’s the Claridges top and Parco di Principi trousers together) – to everyone! Enjoy.

      Eco clothing tip of the week: know your fabrics

       

      We’d like to introduce you to a new friend of ours, Bemberg cotton. It's not only sustainable, being both naturally biodegradable and from a renewable, natural source, it combines two of our favourite loves; comfort and style.

      Bemberg’s breathable nature, soft-as-silk feel and ability to absorb moisture means it’s supremely comfortable. And most importantly, it looks great too, with a luxurious drape that cuts a lean, flowing silhouette. We’ve used it in our new Raffles harem trousers (pictured above with our Beverly Hills wool jersey top) and we’re loving the way it looks like silk but joy of joys, it’s practical too, being just that little bit more tough wearing than silk. So with the right care, it'll last longer, which means less clothing waste, more wear, and you’re making your own small contribution to helping save the planet. What’s not to love?

      The 'one-size fits most' top and dress

       One of the most inspiring things about working with Tluxe is the diversity of our customers. Whether you’re 60 or 20 you all have one thing in common, an inherent sense of your own style. With this in mind, each season we work on creating a dress and top, which look fantastic no matter what your size or age. 

      “A core element to Tluxe is our focus on fluid, lightweight fabrics, which we use to create a capsule range of flexible, one-size fits most pieces,” says our creative director, Becs. “This season it’s about our new colour-blocked L'Hotel top, which works well for day or night with a slim pencil skirt. And our go-to for instant style is the Grand dress. Style it up with the latest flatform shoes or your favourite pair of heels, add a slimline belt and a few of our fab new accessories. I’m loving the long chain earrings in up-cycled silver.

      “Anyone can follow fashion, “ says Becs, “but the essence of Tluxe is about providing the basics to let you express your own sense of individual style.”

      Tluxe Winter 2012 Sneak Preview

        

       

       

       

      We’re launching our Winter 2012 collection titled Perpetual Motion online this week and couldn’t resist giving you a sneak preview of our new campaign, shot on location at Sydney’s Bronte Gully and Beach.

      This season we’ve introduced silk to the range, seen above in one of our favourite pieces, the California top in the colour Flame. A little known fact about this beautifully luxe fabric is that it’s cooler and more breathable than cotton and so ideal for the Australian climate and our moderate winter weather – a key reason why you’ll be seeing much more silk in our future collections. But right now we’re sure you’ll enjoy the luxe feel of our new silk shirts, silk-trimmed merino wool cardigans and, one of our personal favourites, the silk-trimmed Le Crillon poncho, seen at top. “Layer it up with a long-sleeved top, leggings, and a pair of suede ankle boots,” says our creative director, Rebecca Powell. “It’ll be the most comfortably stylish piece in your wardrobe all winter.”
