Our signature fabrics - Lustre


Lustre fabric is a technical, lightweight synthetic material designed to replicate the appearance and texture of silk, but in our design philosophy of “easy Care, easy wear, wear anywhere” style.

It has a luxurious sheen and an elegant finish, making it a popular choice within our collections, and offers that great versatility of being able to look suitable whether you want to dress up or dress down, but know that you always look chic.

  • Easy Care: The standout feature of Lustre fabric is its ease of wash. Unlike natural silk, which can be delicate and require careful handling, Lustre fabric is durable and can be machine washed without fear of shrinkage or loss of colour. It is also designed to have a slightly crinkled look which means it doesn't need ironing or steaming to maintain its appearance. Saving you time, and energy!
  • Luxe Feel: Lustre fabric is technically crafted to provide a gorgeous softness against the skin. This characteristic makes it comfortable to wear, touch and layer.
  • Breathability: Lustre fabric is moisture-repelling, meaning it can draw moisture away from the skin and allow it to evaporate. This property helps keep you cool and comfortable, making it suitable no matter the temperature, and as a bonus it also repels accidental spills!
  • Versatility: As the fabric can easily be dressed up for more formal occasions or dressed down for casual wear, it makes it suitable for a wide range of events and settings. You’ll look as good at the end of the day as you did at the start. This seasons trend of head to toe looks in co-ordinating fabrics and colours, work especially well.
  • Travel-Friendly: Lustre fabric is a popular choice for travellers, as this fabric can be easily packed without taking up much space or weight, and the lack of ironing requirements makes it a practical option for people on the go. (And easy to wash and dry quickly for repeat wears).
  • Value: Offering exceptional value in price, quality and styling; purchasing a Philosophy Australia lustre piece means you are making an investment in your wardrobe with a style that’s quality will endure.

In summary, Lustre fabric is a synthetic material designed to mimic the luxurious look and feel of silk; but its combination of comfort, breathability, easy care, and versatility makes it a favoured choice within our collection, and in our opinion a superior year-round cloth of choice in comparison.

Each piece you buy in this quality will become one of your wardrobe favourites!

We guarantee it! 

Love. Wear. Wash. Repeat.
