Here at Luxe Isle, we describe ourselves as embodying the bohemian surf culture style.
Given that our location in Phillip Island (read more about it here) is the heart of the surf culture community, it only makes sense that we’d combine this with the timeless fashions that come along with bohemian style.
We’ve coined bohemian surf culture to best suit our vibe. Boho summer looks with wearable festival feels and a beachy lifestyle, we feature high-end brands such as Spell and the Gypsy Collective, Celeste Twikler and Kinga Csilla to name a few.
So when you’re deciding to shop with Luxe Isle, you might be wondering what bohemian surf culture actually is.
To best understand the Bohemian Surf Culture, let’s dive into the separate meanings of the terms.
When we think of bohemian or boho, we think feminine flowy styles. Sometimes the bohemian look is perfect for festival styles, however, the more muted styles offered by brands that Luxe Isle stocks like Spell and the Gypsy Collective, Briony Marsh and Stevie May bring a wearable twist to these popular trends.
The bohemian style is thought to represent the unconventional.
Bohemian culture is for those who want to stand out from the crowd and make a statement in every way possible. It is the essence of art, culture and true personal taste.
Luxe Isle aims to celebrate every individual as unique and we cater to those who live by their own rules – and want to look and feel good while doing so.
You can’t visit Phillip Island without being surrounded by surf culture, and quite frankly, we think you’ll really fall in love with it.
You’ll see surf culture embedded in a lot of sport & surf stores, but it’s still missing an element.
It’s been picked up by concrete cities and changed to a more mainstream element, while traditional surf culture is carefree, fun-loving and just oozing with uniqueness of character.
Surf Culture is widely debated, with some claims that it has its roots in early Hawaii. We love this theory, because the floral patterns, free moving materials and exotic vibes that come from the bohemian surf culture rhetoric are so fitting of this tropical dream destination.
Other sources claim that surf culture is Californian, and the sunny, sandy beachy vibes that are thrown out from that idea soothes our souls. We think of Cali and can feel the sun on our faces, the breeze in our hair – yeah, we may be picturing riding down Route 66 in a convertible.
The last theory is that surf culture is a part of Australian history, and when we step outside in Phillip Island, it’s easy to see where the thought process stems from.
Here at Luxe Isle, we think surf culture belongs to the world, and we supply to most stylish, up to date fashion for anyone who feels at home in their own skin.
