Marks & Spencer Al-Futtaim, a leader in family fashion, beauty, food and home ware, has announced that its special Back-to-School range of clothing for children of all ages is now available in M&S stores in the UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait and Oman.
Designed to stand up to the vigorous demands of work and play, the new Back-to-School collection is great value yet packed full of unique and innovative features that make life more comfortable for children and easier for parents.
Long-lasting and easy to care for, the clothing range includes innovations such as: ink-resistant pockets, water-repellent Stormwear coatings, Easy Close Velcro fastenings in place of difficult-to-close top buttons, Stainaway high-performance finishes, scuff-resistant shoes with Fresh Feet antibacterial finish, Ultimate Non-Iron finish for shirts; permanent pleats, and Skinkind fabric that is recognised by the British Skin Foundation.
Zainab Al Mahry, Regional Marketing Manager for Marks & Spencer Al-Futtaim said, “Only M&S offers children’s school clothing combining such style, comfort, durability and affordability. Children get messy, while parents want them to be spotless; that’s why our collection is packed with clever features that benefit everyone. We also use Fairtrade cotton in many of our cotton schoolwear garments. Combined with hallmark M&S quality, they really are the smart choice!”
The first items from the 2012 M&S Back-to-School collection are now available in all 15 M&S stores in the UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait and Oman.
