SUMMER TEXTURES



Wearing: Native bag by The Luxe Project, vintage knit top, Outlaws denim shorts by Oneteaspoon, wedges by Betts and mixed accessories. Photography by Kassandra Hernandez.

After discovering the vast range of native tribal bags at the Chatuchak and floating markets in Thailand, I've become instantly drawn to beautiful weaved fabrics like a moth to a flame. Whether it's their combination of colours or the raw character in each weave, my eyes light up at sight of them. Here I would like to introduce you to The Luxe Project - a label run by mother/daughter team Chutisa and Sharidan Bowman. The two creatives design beautiful bags and accessories here in Australia and source the finest hand embroidery and weaves from the hill tribes of South East Asia to create them. Each piece is rich in texture and detail, any boho, eclectic traveller and or beach girl will adore these designs. Here I've chosen this beautiful red number with loose tassels. The colours are so vibrant I could not help but to team it up with the perfect summer textures - distressed denim, a white knit and embroidered details. To see the complete range of bags and accessories, make sure you head over to The Luxe Project.


Hope you guys are having a good week! I've been hella busy doing pitch work the last few days and now can finally relax. Speaking of relaxing, here's my track of the week! The choppy vocals are just beautiful. You ready for a bliss out? Hit play.

Happy Hump Day y'all!
