      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.

      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.

      We love... lighting up Sydney

        
       
       

      With the official start of spring our cultural calendars are set to overload. First up is Sydney’s Fringe Festival, which kicks off this week. Our personal favourites? The Fringe Art Forum for a supermarket sweep of all that’s happening on the Sydney art scene and In the Night Garden, a collection of light sculptures illuminating the back streets of St Peters, pictured top.

      The other cultural event on our radar is Art and About, which launches later this month (September 21). Our wow factor bets are on Emergence, pictured above, where artists Craig Walshand Steven Thomasson bring the trees of Hyde Park to life in a luminous late night 3D installation. Magic.

      Here comes the sun...

       

      This week, with spring now definitely in the air, we will be mostly listening to the latest album from Quantic and Alice Russell. Particularly loving the title single to the album, Around the Corner. You can almost feel the sun's rays warming your skin as the intro sweeps in. Delicious.

      Inspire me... for the new season!

       

       

      We're super excited this week to announce the arrival of our spring/summer 2012 collection, By the Ocean, now available to buy online. To get you in the mood for the coming summer we've included a detail shot of our new digital palm print (along with our inspirational mood board for the season), which we've featured on some rather lovely signature drapey tops, dresses and a pair of the season's must-have printed trousers (available soon!). In the spirit of the Tluxe brand of easy Australian style, we suggest wearing your hot-new-now palm print with nothing more than a pair of classic Persol Rattis, and some fabulous flats, like these very on-trend silver mirror wedges. You can almost feel the sand between your toes...
