Whistle launches Spring Summer 2018 collection

A wardrobe fit for an adventure comes to Whistles this spring — with travel at the heart of the collection. France is a source of inspiration — both Paris and the wilds of the French coastline — fed into pieces with a certain “je ne sais quoi.” The collection features oversized striped blouses, Seine wide-legged pants and a reworked Breton.
Silhouettes are loose and free-flowing, keeping things cool in both senses of the word. A classic blazer and oversized boilersuit are work-ready in an effortless way, best worn with “don’t-care hair.” Tie-front striped skirts, raffia bags and easy chic parkas provide the kind of off-duty insouciance that speaks of seaside living on the continent. “At Whistles, we say Vive Les Vacances and this season’s slogan tote bag make our feelings known. We dress to frill too — pretty flounces are beguiling over dresses and jumpsuits,” a press release said.
Print is part of the brand’s DNA and this season it is graphic, with the kind of luscious, vivid colors found in African countries. A tulip print is scattered across classic jumpsuits — in a wide-legged shape, cropped or strapless — or on chiffon asymmetric-hemmed dresses, with cut-out detailing on the shoulder. Turquoise is a color of the season — on vintage-looking prints worked into midi-dresses and wrap-around blouses that tie things up just so. A cropped white jacket is the stealth outerwear game changer for spring.
For a new take on a summer palette, the store has sun-bleached colors that signal long languid days. A barley-colored suede jumpsuit provides an easy impact and a wide-sleeved sand-colored denim jacket has an artist-in-the-studio feel. Blush-colored flared jeans feel romantic when paired with a tie-back blouse covered with floral print.

FNRCO signs partnership agreement with TUV NORD

The First National Company for Human Resources (FNRCO) has signed a strategic partnership agreement under which it will represent the National Inspection & Technical Testing Company (TUV NORD), a company specialized in management systems, certification and HSE training in the Middle East. The agreement seeks to explore a business relationship that will bring value to FAHSS/TUV NORD, the FNRCO and its mutual customers in Saudi Arabia, in terms of HR services and recruitment of Saudi and non-Saudi cadres.

The agreement was signed by Ali Jaber Al-Mahan, chairman of the board of directors of FNRCO, and Jamal Al-Baeejan, CEO of FAHSS/TUV NORD Saudi Arabia. 

FNRCO said in a statement that the partnership is part of the company’s strategy to exchange expertise in different fields with international institutions and companies, in line with Saudi Vision 2030.

“The strategic partnership aims to enhance the levels of joint work between the two companies through the exchange of information and engage in future activities and projects in the fields of Saudi and non-Saudi HR services,” it said.

The FNRCO has considerable experience in providing business and project development services in the Kingdom.

The company is registered and licensed by the Saudi Ministry of Labor and provides training for all professional and administrative specialties under the authorization of the General Organization for Technical Education and Vocational Training. The training covers maintenance and inspection services for electrical, mechanical and electronic works for industrial, petroleum and petrochemical companies.

FNRCO works in cooperation with the Human Resources Development Fund and Saudi Ministry of Labor to support the national vision and increase the employment of Saudi nationals.
