      At Bondi this morning...

       

      Spring is in the air at Bondi this morning, 10.30am. Clear skies, a gentle, salt-scented breeze, 15 degrees.

      The calm of long horizons.

      Springtime white; white surf, white daisies.

      Old Bondi.

      New Bondi.

      Tluxe La Baule top spring/summer 2012

       

      Today at Tluxe it's all about stripes. Pictured above are just a few of the reasons why we’re loving the classic Breton stripe, which this spring we’re offering in classic navy and white and for a splash of 2012 now, we’ve freshened up the look with ocean-inspired emerald green.

      Spring preview!





      Today we saw some daffodils. And some magnolias. In the sun. Then the clouds descended and reminded us that it’s not quite spring. Yet. But we’re close. Close enough to get excited and give you a preview of our new spring collection By the Ocean, which is hitting the site in a little over a week’s time.

      For spring/summer 2012 we’ve been inspired by the many colours of the sea from deep and moody navy to jade and Bondi blue. We’re also excited to introduce a digital palm print story, based on the lush semi-tropical tones and textures of our local Sydney beaches (pictured above on our Arraial d’Ajuda trousers and Cayo Largo dress). Botanical prints are not only a theme close to our hearts but are a great way to update your summer wardrobe, being one of the more fashion-forward trends to come off the catwalks this season.

      Continuing the green theme we’ve created a new spin on a classic Breton stripe with our St Tropez maxi dress (pictured above) in emerald. We're also rather proud of our new super luxe silk T-shirts. Be the first to take your pick from chic and sexy black, navy, or bright and perky flamingo by signing up to our news alerts here.

       

       

       

      Block to the future

      We know you’re a forward-thinking lot, so we’d like to give you the heads-up on a key look that will see you well into next summer and beyond. Yes, we’ve talked about colour blocking before – wearing big blocks of complementary colours – and it’s a trend that keeps on keeping on.

      One glance at the current pre-summer 2013 catwalk collections and you can see the likes of Pringle and Prada (pictured above) have opted for a chic and simple take on the trend in black and white. But why wait for summer when you can be ahead of the curve and buy now?

      The Tluxe Empire top in classic monochrome will not only bring your style bang up to date, it’ll look fantastic with your tuxedo-inspired blazer, and those wide-leg trousers we know you’re already considering investing in, if you haven’t already. Oh, and did we say it’s also 60% off, along with the rest of our winter collection? What are you waiting for?

      The perfect day


       
      A bit of fog

       
      A bit of wind

        
      And a whole lot of disco

      This week we’re loving Sydney’s biennale. A great excuse to jump on a ferry, feel the wind in your hair and culturally saturate yourself for a few hours as you wander through the industrial wastelands of Cockatoo Island. Our top tips? Fujiko Nakaya's fog sculpture and Tiffany Singh’s bamboo wind chimes, both of which leave you with a pervading sense of calm.

      And as the sun sets on our ferry ride home the soundtrack to end our most perfect day would have to be Ashford and Simpson’s Bourgie Bourgie, as played by Larry Levan at the infamous Paradise Garage. Not a bad way to start the week. Enjoy!
