    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.

    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.

     

    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.

    This summer here at Tluxe we've created our very own take on the classic white oversized shirt in cool, crisp and planet-friendly woven organic cotton. This stolen-from-your-boyfriend style is the perfect beach cover-up, great for throwing over a bikini while having the added benefit of protecting your skin from the harshness of the midday sun. 

    We’re also loving the clean, simple styling ideas for boyfriend shirts that we’ve been seeing via the street style shots from around the world over the last few weeks, pictured above. Update your wardrobe with a little 2012 now by picking up your own oversized white shirt from our online store today – but be quick, this is a classic that simply flies off the rails.
