    New season preview!

     

      

    Adis Ababa trousers (top) and Saffron top (above), new for autumn/winter 2013

    We're hugely excited to announce the arrival of our new collection for autumn/winter 2013, The Journey, which hits stores next week and our online shop in mid-February.

    Inspired by trips to exotic locations and featuring a jewel-like colour palette of turquoise, teal, ruby red and dark, inky indigo we're particularly proud of our new Australian-designed, tribal-influenced print, pictured above in our Adis Ababa trousers.

    "We've looked inland, to the rich, earthy colours of Australia's outback this season, as a change to our usual coastal influences," explains Tluxe creative director, Rebecca Powell. "Our tribal dance print is a fusion of native cultural references from Indonesian Batik to African-inspired pattern, and the ancient linear artworks of Australia’s indigenous tribes.”

    Another of our favourite pieces in the new collection is our cowl-back Saffron top, which is designed to be layered, Bedouin-like, with swathes of luxurious, natural fabrics. Autumn/winter is all about layering so this season we’ll be providing you with plenty of styling tips on how to get the most out of the key pieces in the new Tluxe collection. Watch this space!

    Today we’re feeling the love for our palm print, designed and printed right here in Sydney. A unique digital take on the trees that line many of our streets and local beaches here in Australia, when we think of palm trees we’re instantly transported to endless summer holidays spent lazing by the ocean and sipping cocktails as the sun goes down.

    That holiday feeling inspired by palm-tree lined promenades from La Croisette on the French Riveria to Beverley Hills and Waikiki has a long history, as you can see from our vintage postcard finds above.

    It also has a bright future with palms being the inspiration du jour for many of the prints gracing the spring/summer 2013 catwalks. To capture a little of that holiday spirit now and stay ahead of the fashion curve, dive into the Tluxe selection of palm print; silk T-shirts, dresses, shirts and super chic trousers. It's a sure fire way to instantly pep up your look and provide a hit of seaside glamour whether your heading to the office or hitting the pool.

     

    The soundtrack to your week...

     

    Balmy spring evenings, strolling home with the doors to people's homes open, the scent of barbeques in the air, and the sound of music escaping onto the tree-lined streets. Ahh, it's been a magic long weekend here in Sydney hasn't it? As we prepare for the week ahead we're watching the sun set, that incredible full moon rise, and listening to the sounds of The Cinematic Orchestra. Have a lovely evening friends, and a fantastic week ahead. Much love, Tluxe. 

    Eco tip of the week… Tluxe bamboo

    The fashion industry can leave a pretty hefty environmental footprint from the chemicals used in making fabrics to the landfill required for all those clothes that wear out. Here at Tluxe we’ve tried to lessen our impact on the planet with the creation of an Essentials range, which we’ve launched this season, and plan to slowly and quietly expand on in months to come.

     The aim is to provide you with quality pieces in sustainable fabrics, which will become the core building blocks of your wardrobe. It’s all about the perfect T-shirt, the perfect skirt, or the perfect pair of leggings.

    Finding the most flattering fit and combining it with a certain timeless style is a key part of the formula for our Essentials range. So too is our focus on using high quality fabrics such as bamboo, which has a reputation for being the world's most renewable material due to it’s fast-growing nature and ability to thrive without the use of chemical fertilisers or pesticides.

    Just take a look at our wear-them-forever, super-soft and super-comfortable bamboo tube pencil skirt and maxi tube skirt. By choosing organic fibres or sustainable fabrics you’re doing your bit in contributing to a brighter, chemical-free future, and there's no doubt that's a good thing.
