      Inspire me... the tonal colour block

      This autumn we’re more about evolution than revolution. With this in mind we’ve taken last season’s trend for wearing vibrant blocks of colour and turned it into a subtler look by using tones of charcoal and navy blue.  We’ve also taken the hard work out of matching individual colours for you by combining them all into one piece. Cue our W t-shirt, Clarence maxi-dress, and One Aldwych pencil skirt.

      And with our choice of blues a hit at the most recent round of catwalk shows for next autumn/winter, as seen above at Anne Valerie Hash (right) and Gianfranco Ferre (left), the Tluxe take on a more subtle, tonal colour block is a fashion-forward look that’ll see you well into next year and beyond.

      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.

      Baroque meets disco

      Statement accessories have been a catwalk staple for a few seasons now and are a great way to add a touch of wow to clean, minimalist dressing. Our current love affair is with Bottega Veneta’s new baroque meets disco jewellery, which will look great piled on with the clean lines of a Tluxe maxi dress or our Melissa O jumpsuit.

      If you love the style but not the hefty price tag, nothing beats the joy of trawling a vintage market or auction house. Our personal favourite in Sydney is Mitchell Road Antiques. Keep your eyes peeled for Victorian-inspired pieces, or if you have a little more time, check out an auction, such as the fine jewellery sale at Lawsons, held once a month.
