    Inspire me... oceanic colours

      Continuing our celebration of colour, today we take a look at the cool oceanic tones that inspired us here at Tluxe HQ for summer 2012. The perfect daytime balance to the evening hues of warm sunset orange we featured last week, our emerald and lagoon shades of blue and green are inspired by the colours of the ocean sparkling against Sydney’s skyline on any given day of the week.

    Not only do oceanic tones make you feel calm and look cool it’s a very now palette worth investing in. Perusing the more directional looks on the Spring/Summer 2013 catwalks, it’s no surprise that the ocean was a key inspiration for designers from London to New York. The Tluxe top tip? Wear it with an understated sparkle of metallic silver or bronze via a pair of flats strapped at the ankle, or show your fashion smarts by sporting next summer’s hot accessory now; a chunky, transparent cuff.

    The insider... why Tluxe is good for you

    At Tluxe we try our hardest to really think about the impact our clothes have on the planet, and ultimately on you. Where we can, we use sustainable fabrics such as bamboo, Tencel, organic cotton, and natural fibres such as silk, linen, cashmere and Merino wool. We also make sure the fabrics are of the best quality, so yes, that may mean they’re slightly pricier but it also means they’ll last you beyond one season, and definitely beyond a few washes.

    We have all our products made locally here in Australia including our labels and swing tags. Less air miles in the production process means less pollution, we use less energy and as a result leave less of a carbon footprint. Keeping it local also means the people who make our clothes get fair pay and working conditions.

    If you’re keen on ethical fashion but aren’t sure where to find it take a look at our friend Matthew Paroz’s How Big is Your Eco fashion directory. A guide to all things fashionable and earth-friendly, Matt suggests a few ways to eco-fy your wardrobe, starting with the life of a garment. “Look for pieces that are well made and will still look great in years to come,” Matt tells us. “Know that organic cotton is better than standard cotton, but that cotton is a very water-intensive fabric. Educate and inform yourself.” Listen and learn.
