Lifestyle offers new trends as back-to-school season begins

 Average school expenses involve intense number-crunching exercises and plenty of budgeting. With schools gearing up to reopen, the yearly rise in prices of school fees can deter parents from spending on new school accessories. Moreover, active school lives lead to much wear and tear within a year if schoolbags and other essentials are not durable enough.
Lifestyle claims to offer value on quality products that are affordable for school life.
The company has given a guide on the latest styles and designs.
• Lines, shapes and angles in bright hues are classic styles. JWorld features printed backpacks and checkered and graphic print pencil cases. Icon’s monochrome tribal print or Sakroot’s Midnight Spirit print bags make for a fashion statement!
• Returning to school from fun-filled vacations can be a daunting experience for students. Travel-inspired stationary by Bloom, JWorld’s Ice Pop collection and plenty of nature-inspired bags from Jansport should set the mood for going back to class.
• Comic books are popular for their shades and designs that have inspired school accessories as well. Cosmic’s comic print schoolbag set and notebooks by Lifestyle brands fall in this category.
• Back-to-school season is the perfect time for goal setting and feeling motivated to work hard and stay organized. Notebooks & Stationery by Ice London and Daily Planners by Bloom help young minds prepare in advance for every lecture. To aid in note taking, Studio Series color pencils assist in coded marking and visually memorizing important points.
• Lifestyle offers colorful prints for boys and girls by JWorld, Santoro, Pepe Jeans London, Real Madrid and more. These sets cover everything from trolley bags to matching water bottles and notebooks.
Shoppers spending 250 dirhams ($68) and above will receive a Bluetooth speaker or a pair of headphones for 10 dirhams. iPhones, Bluetooth speakers, entertainment vouchers and many more prizes are just a click away and all your child needs to do is snap a selfie with the hashtag #Skoolfie to stand a chance at winning some prizes.


Bentley marks 100 years at Monterey Car Week

Bentley marks 100 years at Monterey Car Week

As part of its centenary celebrations, Bentley hosted a number of events during the Monterey Car Week, from Aug. 15 to 18.

To mark the occasion, two models debuted — the new Flying Spur luxury four-door grand tourer, and the EXP 100 GT: A vision of luxury mobility in 2035.

The third-generation Flying Spur sets new standards of driving enjoyment and luxury, showcasing Bentley’s application of modern technology, while integrating the latest British craftsmanship and innovation features.

The new Flying Spur will be the most advanced luxury grand touring four-door available. 

Alongside its totally new and advanced aluminum and composite chassis, it features optional electronic all-wheel steering — a first for a Bentley, coupled with active all-wheel drive and the Bentley Dynamic Ride active anti-roll system powered by a 48V architecture.

The Flying Spur was put on display on Aug. 16 at the Quail — a motorsports gathering and at the Home of Bentley for the remainder of the weekend.

It was joined by the EXP 100 GT concept car, which made its US debut. With the EXP 100 GT, Bentley has reimagined the idea of grand touring for the future.

The EXP 100 GT is pure Bentley, inspired by the company’s deep understanding of the desires of its forward-thinking customers. It embraces artificial intelligence (AI) as a means to reassert the car as a place for creating, experiencing and capturing extraordinary human experiences and emotions.

It displays the future of luxury craftsmanship with a seamless fusion of materials and the intelligent curation of technology. The vehicle’s battery system will power four motors that deliver superior performance. Projected performance figures include a 0-60 mph time of less than 2.5 seconds, a top speed of 186 mph, and maximum torque of 1,500 Nm.

Ahead of the EXP 100 GT’s Americas debut, Bentley launched a new and dedicated app for Apple devices.

Released on Aug. 12, the “Bentley 100 AR” app uses a printable QR code to provide an augmented reality experience of the EXP 100 GT, allowing users to explore the exterior and interior of the concept car. Users can even interact with a virtual version of the car in full scale, by using the app at selected Bentley retailers.

Bentley was a featured marque at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where numerous classic models competed in Bentley Centennial classes, including Vintage 4 Cylinder, Vintage 6 Cylinder, Derby and Postwar.
