    Tluxe Blog — silk

    Get ready to refresh!

     

     

     

    This is the week, people, that our new autumn/winter collection lands online! Now’s the time to update your wardrobe with a hint of cool blue teal, the relaxed silhouette of a printed shift dress, the hot new shape of our cropped trousers, or the cocooning softness of one of this season’s essential pieces, the easy-to-wear cape

    Made from pure Australian wool and trimmed with the lux touch of silk, we pride ourselves that our cape, like the rest of our collection, is made and designed wholly in Australia from natural, sustainable fabrics. This means it not only feels amazing against your skin, it supports local makers and industry, and with less air miles to travel from our studio to your wardrobe, ensures we leave as little an imprint on our environment as possible so you can look great and feel great too.

    Be the first to know when new styles - such as our pure wool cape - land, enjoy up-to-the-minute styling tips and exclusive offers by signing up to our newsletter here. Happy days.

    So you’ve got your beach house booked for your summer break and with the mayhem of Christmas haven’t a second to think about what to pack? Let us do the work for you. Our top tips? Keep it simple with some mix and match separates, add a dress for cocktail hour, take fabrics that are light, roll up easily in your suitcase (like our Tluxe organic cotton and luxe silk combos) and most of all, have fun with colour and print because… you’re on holiday! Enjoy.

    Why we use... merino wool and silk


     
     
     
    Continuing our occasional guide to the environmentally conscious fabrics we use at Tluxe, this week we'd like to introduce you to Australian merino wool and silk.
    Both silk and wool are the most luxurious of natual fibres. In combining them in key items such as our Amour asymmetric cardigan and La Mamounia wool jumper, which features some rather lovely silk sleeves (both pictured above), we've not only doubled the luxury factor but also your comfort. 
     
    Wool is warm, super soft and breathable, making it great for transeasonal dressing. And the lustre of silk adds just that little bit of wow, along with sharing many of the practical qualities of wool such as breathability, durability and a super soft feel. And they both drape extremely well, meaning you'll not only feel great, you'll look fantastic. Oh, and being natural fibres means both silk and wool are sustainable and therefore a better choice for the future of the planet. What's not to love?

    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?

    Image of the week...

    Our inspiration for the Tluxe Autumn/Winter 2012 collection, Perpetual Motion started with this image of a white owl. "We’ve called the collection Perpetual Motion because that’s how we’re feeling right now, in a constant state of movement," says our creative director, Rebecca Powell. 
     
    "Looking at the big picture it’s about being always switched on, and finding a wardrobe that fits with our busy lifestyles.  On a more down-to-earth level Perpetual Motion reflects the fluidity of the clothes, and the luxe fabrics, such as silk, which make up the collection. The image of the owl represents a number of things close to our hearts, from the beauty of nature, which is reflected in the collection through our use of natural materials, to the white owl's symbolism as a Goddess in ancient Celtic folklore."
