    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.

    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 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.

    Hot off the press...

     This weekend, dont' miss Tluxe creative director, Rebecca Powell's interview on Lifegloss, about the secrets of balancing a business and family life, and if you missed us in last month's issue of Women's Health, here's a pic from one of their great shoots, featuring our classic jersey singlet top. You can get the latest version online here, and while you're there, take a look at some of our newest pieces from the summer collection, including our hotly anticipated range of dresses, which arrived fresh to our online store this week. Enjoy. And have a great weekend! Love Tluxe.  xx
