Samsonite Is Celebrating Its 100th Birthday With The Launch Of B’Lite, Its Lightest Ever Luggage Collection Available At HouseofFraser.co.uk

The new series of luggage is now available online at houseoffraser.co.uk and it boasts the lightest luggage ever produced by Samsonite.

Samsonite luggage is renowned for its high quality build and stylish, yet practical designs. Established in 1910, the branddeveloped its first suitcase range weighing around 10kg. However, Samsonite has constantly developed its products over the years to produce its lightest luggage collection to date. This has lead to the creation of the new B’Lite luggage range which includes a cabin sized case (55cm) that weighs approximately 2.3kg.

The Samsonite B’Lite range has been tested in Samsonite’s laboratory and as always customers can expect to find the B’Lite luggage range has been made to a very high standard. The luggage is constructed from lightweight twisted polyester – a super light durable fabric and the front edges of the suitcase are made with tough polyester – a strong, solid and durable material. Samsonite’s innovative construction incorporates the carry handles in the side and top panel of the suitcase, which results in a unique design that’s stylish yet functional. Samsonite B’Lite luggage also features YKK RC zippers which are well known for lasting a lifetime and it includes a TSA padlock to keep belongings secure and safe.

The B’Lite case from Samsonite is ideal for those travelling on airlines that have restricted cabin baggage allowances and the lightweight luggage can help customers avoid excess baggage fees.

The Samsonite ultra light range is now available online through the House of Fraser website.

F&F Couture At Clothing At Tesco

F&F Couture is the first foray into high fashion by a supermarket chain, and is set to banish any preconceptions about supermarket fashion. Eye-catching design features, bespoke fabrics and intricate detailing are present in every garment in the collection, which encompasses sixteen items ranging from a sheer printed racer-back vest to a heavily embellished sequin jacket.

Priced between £40 and £140, F&F Couture mixes print, texture and embellishment in a colour palette of zingy acid brights, muted charcoals and regal magenta tones.

Buying Director of Tesco Clothing Jan Marchant commented: “F&F Couture signifies a new era for supermarket fashion. It’s a high fashion-led range which will enable us to meet the increased desire for affordable yet high quality clothing, and we’re so confident that the range will be a success that work has already begun on the Autumn/Winter range.”

The standout piece of the collection is the Textured Pagoda Dress which is sculpted in a flattering hourglass shape. A ruffled collar adds detail to the dress whilst the exposed zip adds a welcome edginess.

Embellished with metallic silver sequins that highlight the muted print, the Pagoda Jacket is a dramatic cover up that will add interest to any outfit. The jacket is paired with the unstructured sequin trim Fisherman Trousers that have a flattering paperbag tie waist and slouchy oversized pockets.

Combining sharp tailoring with a feminine edge, the Stripe Shorts and Waistcoat are adorned with pintucks and origami pleats. A peek-a-boo cutout adds interest to the back of the waistcoat with the wrap-around fastening on the shorts creating a skirt-like appearance.

The Black Cropped Jacket is adorned with thousands of tiny sequins giving it a metallic quality, whilst the over-exaggerated long balloon sleeves add interest by playing on proportion. The Harem Pant in grey silk features a gathered waist and fabric is pulled in with drawstrings around the ankle.

Featuring diaphanous swathes of white fabric that drape from a high ruffled neckline, the Multi Layered Dress (£140) has an ethereal quality whether dressed up or down. The Multi Layered Skirt (£60) in the same fabric is finished with a puffball hem.

Exclusive New Kick Ass Collection By French Connection

French Connection launches exclusive range of tees and sweats to celebrate the hotly anticipated 2010 superhero action movie Kick Ass.

The new film includes Executive Producer credits for French Connection UK Chairman and CEO, Stephen Marks, and has been adapted from Mark Millar’s best-selling comic book series of the same name.

Kick Ass tells the story of an average teenager who is inspired by his favourite comic books and decides to become a real-life superhero himself. However, the self-titled ‘Kick-Ass’ is devoid of one important thing… superpowers.

Young Brit star Aaron Johnson plays the lead role of Dave Lizewski/ Kick-Ass, but no superhero is complete without a sidekick. Nicholas Cage (a.k.a. Big Daddy) plays a former cop who, in his quest to bring down an evil drug lord, has trained his 11-year-old daughter to be a ruthless sword-wielding vigilante Hit Girl.

The film’s script was written by Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman, who previously wrote the smash hit Stardust together. Vaughn directed the film, and produced it with Brad Pitt (among others), cementing its Hollywood cool credentials.

The film’s superhero costumes strike just the right balance between looking ridiculous and kind of cool – they are accessible enough for even non-superheroes to aspire to trying this at least once for themselves. But for those not brave enough to venture out in a head-to-toe suit; French Connection has launched its new Kick Ass collection that features a number of men’s t-shirts to provide the next best thing.

Stephen Marks wanted the exclusive new range to build on French Connection’s already firmly established collections of retro film inspired apparel with an exclusive set of Kick Ass t-shirts and sweats. Tops come in dark and sinister black and greys, or alter-egos can shine in Kick Ass’ signature colours of jade and yellow. Featuring iconic empowering catchphrases, film logos, and original comic book illustrations, now anyone can show their allegiance to all that is good and right in the world of style by wearing one of French Connection’s superhero t-shirts.
