Friday’s Eco Fashion Pick: Tluxe

Tluxe White Shirt Dress
.
Coco Chanel once said “Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.” Tluxe embodies this concept. Creative director, Rebecca Powell sought to create a label that was firstly comfortable and secondly, she wanted it to be chic and luxurious, while maintaining a high quality. With Tluxe, it looks like she achieved just that.

Rebecca designed for Top Shop and a host of Australian brands before forging out on her own with her vision. She founded Tluxe on a kitchen table in Tamarama Beach, in Sydney, back in 2006. She wanted to show a care and love for the environment and encourage loyalty to the local Australian industry. She works with bamboo cotton, cashmere and Merino wool, as much as she can. She takes the idea of a basic tee and makes it comfortable, luxurious and, might I say, elegant, all while keeping the work local to Australia.

Cayo Largo Dress Tluxe

One of my favorite pieces from the line is the Cayo Largo dress. It’s made locally in Australia and the print is a fun take on a palm leaf print. I love this dress because it speaks of that comfy elegance that the line embodies. The silhouette is so easy to wear. Pair this with heels for a date or sandals during the summer. I would even layer it with leggings and boots for the chillier months. The draped element is really beautiful and it takes a simple printed dress to that other level.

Prado Top Tluxe

I’m a little bit obsessed with the Prado top. The V-neck can be quite flattering and the asymmetric hemline adds a bit of interest to an otherwise simple top. The color is to die for. It is hard to go wrong with this warm shade of orange. It also comes in green, turquoise and black. I’m always on the lookout for black tops to wear with jeans or dress up for work so the black version is a hot item, as well.

No matter what country you live in, supporting the local industry is a major plus. For all you lucky Australians, Tluxe is a great go-to brand for your basics wardrobe. For the rest of us, thank the heavens for online shopping.
