Taking its name from a Sixties-era radical art movement — the name is Latin for "to flow" — the women’s clothing brand fLuXuS treats the act of getting dressed as a creative endeavor. Founded in 2007 by Los Angeles-based designer Martin Paquette, fLuXuS has won a celebrity following for its understated elegance and trademark burnout patterns, which hint at urban grunge. For fLuXuS, functionality is key: its striped tops, sleek dresses and other separates are easy to match or layer under your favorite V-necks and jackets. Plenty of Hollywood’s glamorous residents (Jessica Alba, for one) like to wrap up in fLuXuS's signature oversize cardigans, flattering cotton and polyester dresses, and loose-fitting printed T-shirts — all designed and produced in LA.
Summer’s sunny days call for a new version of the classic LBD. Why not lighten things up with flattering styles in white-hot shades? Outfit yourself in easy, romantic silhouettes, from flirty crocheted drop waist numbers to gauzy silk maxi dresses, embroidered cotton tunics, and floral lace shifts, ideal for pairing with simple sandals and delicate jewelry.
Now that you've picked a few hot trends to try this spring — peplum dress, graphic black-and-white top, neon accessory — it's time to stock up on some luxe basics. Keep your wardrobe well-balanced with draped jersey tees, sleek skinny jeans, silk blouses, and expertly tailored blazers, all ready to carry you stylishly through the season.
Give slouchy sweaters the cold shoulder this season—the hottest knits are fitted and sleek. Brands Leroy & Perry (a West Village favorite) and 525 America (the trendsetting lifestyle brand) have come together, along with a few other brands, for this don’t-miss selection, which includes pointelle cardigans, gauze-y wraps, mismatched striped crews, and much more.
Exuding an easy-breezy elegance has never been simpler, thanks to this super-chic collection of basic cotton separates from the L.A. label whose name is Latin for "to flow." From figure-flattering tops awash in classic stripes and neutrals to versatile dresses that need nothing more than a great pair of heels to turn heads, Fluxus guarantees a wardrobe of effortless mixing, matching, layering, and never having to think twice about what to wear.
