    Inspire me… the perfect travel wardrobe

     

     

     

     

    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.

    Soundtrack to the week...

     

    Today we're enjoying the cool after a hot and steamy Sydney weekend. We're wearing one of our super fine organic cotton Portofino T-shirts with a pair of Palm print silk trousers while mostly listening to the dulcet tones of Terry Callier, which is sitting so well with the laid-back summer vibe we're feeling at the moment we're making his classic 1972 album, What Colour is Love, our soundtrack to the week. Enjoy.

    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.

    High summer colour inspiration

       


      

     

     

     

    Today we're excited to announce that our new colours for high summer have just landed on the site! Inspired by the cobalt blue, gunmetal grey and flame orange tones of beachside sunsets, and, for those of you who prefer the tranquility of early morning, we’ve included some inspirational images of Bondi beach at sunrise, with thanks to photographer Eugene Tan.

    The insiders guide to… dream beaches

     


    A quick look at the names of the individual pieces in our new summer collection and you may or may not have noticed that this season we’ve been inspired by classic beaches from around the world. Malibu, La Croissette, St Malo…

    Yes we’re based in a country with some of the best coastline on the planet but it doesn’t stop us fantasizing about the beaches we’d love to go to in our dreams. It’s inspired many a water-cooler conversation this past few weeks, which we thought we’d share with you. So here we have it. Our top three best beaches we’ve ever been to:

     

    Perhentian Islands, South China Sea, Malaysia. ‘The beaches are magical but it’s more about the lack of people… and that you can see some pretty amazing turtles.’ Rebecca Powell, creative director.

    Trancoso, Bahia, Brazil. ‘Epic. I wish I was there now.’ Suzie Q, production manager extraordinaire.

     

    Whitehaven, Whitsundays, Australia. ‘I pretty much traveled the entire southern coastline of Europe only to discover that the best beaches were at home. Whitehaven was one of my first trips to a tropical beach.’ Verity Magdalino, digital editor.
