As the first days of autumn roll in we're feeling the culture today at Tluxe HQ, and what better way to spend a rainy weekend like the one we've just experienced here in Sydney, than traipsing around the art galleries for a little inspiration. This week heralds the start of Art Month, and personally we're loving the after hours gallery openings, which usually involve a cocktail or two alongside your culture.
This week the galleries of Paddington and Woollahra open up Thursday, March 7 as part of a series of 'Precinct Nights', followed by art spaces in Waterloo and Alexandria on Friday, March 8. We're loving Helen Mueller's hand cut woodblock prints of a melaleuca forest at the Brenda May gallery, pictured, and Caroline Rothwell's images of endangered Australian animals made from the black carbon residue collected from exhaust pipes.
Ok, so this is not exactly where we live, but it's on our wish list of dream homes and interiors. And with the cooler change in the air today, and the imminent arrival of autumn/winter collection online, we're feeling the love for the cosy fireside at Rose Seidler House. A mid-century modern gem hidden in one of the leafier parts of Sydney its original 1950s interior still feels contemporary. Architect Harry Seidler built it for his mother and its open plan design and feeling of bringing the outside indoors heralded a new aesthetic, which has become almost standard in many architect-designed Australian homes today. And the best part? You can visit Rose in all her originally furnished glory on any Sunday you like. Pure. Modernist. Magic.
Happy New Year you lovely people! Hope you're all enjoying one of our best summers ever - and are finding plenty of sartorial inspiration in our January sale. For those of you who may feel the need to escape the heat (41 degrees expected in Sydney tomorrow!), skip the crowds at the beach for a little cultural inspiration in the air-conditioned coolness of Sydney's MCA and the fantastic Anish Kapoor exhibition, which is on now until April 1st. Kapoor is one of our personal all-time favourite artists and this is a chance to immerse yourself in the perception-changing colour of his work up close. So do don't miss it!
The Tluxe tux and YSL's Le Smoking look.
This week, we’re watching Anna Wintour’s Obama campaign and perusing Karl Lagerfeld’s new book, Little Black Jacket while wearing our tuxedo-inspired Chelsea shirt. As the great Karl himself says, “Who can live without black clothes?". Personally we find the Chelsea a great way to add a little tux lux to a relaxed, casual look without resorting to the full tailored number a la YSL’s original Le Smoking (pictured above). We’ve styled it with our Raffles trousers but you can team yours with a pair of high waist, wide-leg pants for a touch of Bianca Jagger, or add dark skinny jeans, heels and a blazer in white or a contrast colour for a little hot, new, now.
We’ve been watching the street style blogs as much as the catwalks this last few weeks and are loving the fresh look of a long maxi skirt. From this season’s essential flowing numbers to the elongated column dress - which is being touted as the new basic shape for summer - we've selected a few of our favourite looks so you can see for yourself how easily this style can be dressed up or down. Try heels, a loose fit shirt and chunky accessories for a few evening drinks or leave it clean and casual with a simple T-shirt, slimline belt and flat sandals for weekend brunch. And don't forget you can buy the summer's all essential Tluxe maxi online here.
