“Of course, it’s not easy; we have to rehabilitate, study local laws, rules, customs, speech patterns and people’s behavior, and much more to better understand the culture and feel at home. comfortable. [this] six months we got used to our new life, a lot of things became clear and not as complicated as it seemed at first glance. But of course any change takes time,” Vikhlyaieva said.

Now that the family is settled, Vikhlyaieva said that although she misses Ukraine, her parents, loved ones and all those who chose to stay. However, she has no intention of returning home before the end of the war and said: “The children have just gotten used to school. It is difficult for them to make them come and go. It is not safe in Ukraine. the end of the war.”

For Halina Stepansova, a professional makeup stylist from Kharkov in northeastern Ukraine, the job was a constant stream of styling for fashion brands, magazines and movies. Stepansova had worked in the beauty industry for more than ten years and was in great demand throughout Ukraine. However, when the war started, Stepansova’s work came to a complete halt, and the reality that the war was real became impossible to hide. Stepansova recalls that “the first days of the war were very, very scary, and it was impossible to believe it: this is really what is happening. I was afraid for the lives of my family and friends , and every day it was getting worse.”

“The first time a fighter jet flew over my head, I thought it was the end. It was psychologically unbearable. It was getting harder and harder to get food. The explosions were getting closer and were becoming more frequent,” she added.

Just eight days after the start of the war, Stepansova decided to leave Ukraine as soon as she could. So at six o’clock in the morning, Stepansova packed a suitcase, and her cat, which she had to hand over to a friend who chose to stay in Ukraine and left to wait for an evacuation train at the Kharkov station for the take to Berlin, Germany. Stepansova, who was fleeing Ukraine with a friend, said she spent all day and night at the station, waiting for a train without a timetable or a ticket in the cold air. When the train arrived late on March 3, the station panicked and people started “pushing everyone away, [trying] to enter. We rode for 19 hours, sitting and standing in the aisles, sitting on our own suitcases. It was terrible.”

Germany has been a source of security for Ukrainian refugees since the start of the war. Many have fled to Berlin, the country’s capital, which offers services such as monthly allowances, access to health insurance, assistance in applying for a residence permit to all war refugees who have sought refuge in the city ​​and offered Stepansova a chance to seek refuge, while continuing her work in the fashion and film industries.

Two weeks after fleeing her home, Stepansova began receiving job offers from former clients she had in Ukraine. But, in accordance with German guidelines on working as a refugee, Stepansova could not start working legally until two months after her arrival. As she prepared to start working, Stepansova said she had no makeup or tools as they had all been left behind in Ukraine. However, a makeup salon in Berlin gave Stepansova a “big box of testers, and I was able to start doing what I love so much”, which is makeup. Now Stepansova received work in Berlin. Her clients include well-known fashion brands, such as Flaconi, and makeup for Berlin Fashion Week. The beauty master also recently did Michal Herzog, the wife of Isaac Herzog, the President of Israel, in what she said was her “most memorable job”.

Anyone who’s shopped at a retailer with few physical storefronts knows it can be hard to know where to start. There are many options that all seem equally valid, but the reality is that the products of any Mark are not all created equal. When you shop as regularly as we do, you learn that many brands simply do some things better than others. Target, with a massive inventory of furniture and home decoration of its many house brands, is one such brand. To help you find the best items from Threshold, Opalhouse, Project 62, Magnolia, and more, we’ve compiled all the products our writers and editors — plus the designers, artistsand other cool people they interviewed – recommended.

Bedding | Kitchen | Furniture | Lighting | Storage | Kids | Decor

Threshold 400 Thread Count Solid Performance Sheet Set

Target Plain Jersey Sheet Set

If you’re buying sheets for a college student, this set was recommended by former strategist writer Chloe Anello. “For the price, they don’t pill as quickly as you might expect, and they’re easy to maintain – basically any cheap detergent and outdated washing machines and dryers in your dormitory won’t destroy them,” says Anello. Malik Logan, lead designer of Tailored Interiors, also describes them as “super soft”.

Threshold Channel Stitch Velvet Quilt

Rated the best velor option in our roundup of the best duvets, this Threshold blanket features channel stitching, which decorator Carrie Carrollo says is stylish yet easy to incorporate into any decor. Besides the cream color pictured, there are a few more shades available including Mint, Charcoal and Green.

Threshold 20-Piece Stainless Steel Silverware Set, Gold

Photo: Retailer

In our comprehensive guide to the best place settings, Heather Goerzen of online interior design service Havenly recommends this gold set for its “simple form, sophisticated finish” and, of course, price. The rust-resistant 20-piece set includes dinner and salad forks, knives, spoons, and teaspoons.

Brightroom Slim Step Bin

Associate Strategy Editor Jenna Milliner-Waddell opted for this Brightroom trash can, our pick for best slim trash can, to go in her studio kitchen. After two years of stepping on the pedal, it still hasn’t failed him, says Milliner-Waddell. And with a glossy, fingerprint-resistant finish similar to Simplehuman’s, the box costs just under $50. “If you want a large, relatively inexpensive stainless steel trash can, this one won’t give you anything you’re complaining about,” says Milliner-Waddell.

Pillowfort Jersey Bean Bag Chair

Anne Sanger, artist and owner of the Pinkwater Gallery, recommends this structured bean bag chair from Pillowfort. Named our top pick for small kids, it has two handy side pockets big enough for picture books, toys or even a water bottle. Sanger says that for toddlers who can’t sit still, this chair will hold its shape better and provide more support than other beanbags.

Threshold Windsor Counter Height Bar Stool, Hardwood

This bar stool looks like the Shaker-style one on our list of the best dining chairs but taller and a quarter of the price. New York Associate Editor Alexis Swerdloff has five in the (now discontinued) light wood finish, but the black shown is just as impressive and will look great on any kitchen counter or island. Plus, says Swerdloff, “they were extremely easy to put together.”

Verdin side table — Opalhouse designed with Jungalow

This woven side table, which is on Strategist Editor-in-Chief Jen Trolio’s favorites list, would make a lovely plant stand.

Regency Hill Jenson Aged Brass Pharmacy Floor Lamp

In our roundup of the best floor lamps, we named it the best task lamp thanks to a recommendation from Alessandra Wood, vice president of style at online interior design service Modsy. Because of its classic look, Wood says, it won’t go out of fashion. “It has the perfect blend of vintage and industrial charm, and the distressed brass introduces a warm, upscale feel to any rustic space,” she says.

Threshold Crosby Glass Shade Floor Lamp

If you’re looking for a more affordable floor lamp that’s great for bedtime reading, Strategist Junior Writer Brenley Goertzen owns this one, which has an adjustable arm and a clear glass shade.

Gray Threshold Fabric Office Tool Holder

weird eyeBobby Berk loves this desk organizer from Threshold, which is upholstered in a light gray fabric that he says looks stylish. “I love how this has a dedicated space for everything; you can put your notepads, post-its, pencils,” he says. “I don’t think anyone needs a bigger organizer because do you really have that much stuff?” It will end up being boring.

Pillowfort Stackable Wooden Storage Bin

These Pillowfort organizers were recommended to us by professional organizer Britnee Tanner specifically for storing children’s toys. Available in small and large sizes, they can be stacked to avoid taking up floor space, says Tanner. Or you can place several side by side on a shelf, which will make it easier for toddlers to grab their LEGOs, dolls or books.

Brightroom Square Base Decorative Tapered Coiled Rope Basket

Strategist editor Maxine Builder has several of these baskets to organize her wardrobe, though she says they’re “cool enough to leave out.” You can choose from three colors, all of which are accented with contrasting handles.

Cloud Island silicone placemat with self-adhesive rainbow screen print

Trolio uses these placemats for “Play-Doh, paint, or whatever messy art stuff” his kids have in class. They can also be used during mealtimes – Trolio says if you’re “going to leave them on the table most of the time and wipe them down there, they clean up really well”.

Mondo Llama Jungle Craft Bucket 273 Pieces

Swerdloff says that even though this bucket contains 273 pieces, it’s “not an overwhelming amount of little bits to add to an already cluttered apartment.” Containing wooden craft sticks, googly eyes, pom poms, fuzzy sticks and felt shapes, the kit “comes with a bunch of super easy craft projects for particularly uninspired parents”, explains Swerdloff.

Pizza Mondo Llama to paint yourself

Mondo Llama’s smaller individual craft kits range from $5 to $15, making them “great birthday gifts when your kids are invited to parties,” says Trolio. She especially likes this one because you can use it in a play kitchen after painting and drying it.

Mondo Llama 502 Piece String a Bling Jewelry Set

Like the kit above, the quantity and variety of this set provides excellent value for money, says Trolio. Her 7-year-old was thrilled to make a bracelet with the name of the beads, while her 4-year-old could manage to string the biggest beads.

Target Project 62 Stripe Tufted Doormat

When we asked cool people about the best doormats, former strategist writer Leah Muncy recommended this one as the traditional coir option. Even after four months of constant use by three roommates, the rug “hasn’t yet shown any significant wear,” says Muncy. And it’s “just fancy enough for my entry without looking too Bohemian.”

Project 62 Dauntless Curtain Rods

Photo: Retailer

Taking the top spot in our roundup of the best curtain rods, this adjustable steel style from Project 62 is “simple and timeless,” says Dani Mulhearn, senior designer at Havenly. With a sleek, streamlined silhouette, this cane looks more expensive than it is, which is helpful if you’re buying it in multiples. It is available in four finishes, including matte black and brass, with cylindrical end caps and matching hanging hardware.

Metal Napkin Holder — Hearth & Hand With Magnolia

Trolio has this rack, which it says is useful for bathrooms that don’t have an intuitive place for a wall-mounted towel rack.

Bath hook - Hearth and hand with magnolia

And these hooks from the same collection can be “hung by the back door, in the kitchen, especially at a child-friendly height for backpacks and jackets,” says Trolio.

Project 62 Cradle Brass Decorative Hook

If your style is more modernist, Milliner-Waddell has three of these hooks in her apartment entryway and says they can hold “tons of purses, tote bags and a few jackets and hats.”

Threshold designed with Studio McGee Light Woven Vase

Rattan is having a moment, and this vase from Target’s recent collaboration with Studio McGee (you might recognize Netflix founders Shea and Syd McGee Dream home makeover) offers an affordable version of the trend. In fact, Strategist editor Chelsea Peng says she first noticed this vase when it was touted as a dupe for an urn and pedestal combo coveted by fashion and design folks alike. design. Pair this vase with the coordinating Jungalow table above for a similar effect.

Opalhouse Outdoor Ceramic Family Planter

“I limited myself to just one,” says strategist writer Latifah Miles of this smiling six-inch planter, which she considers more of a “decor piece than a functional plant holder.” Add a small fake plant it and place it on a shelf.

Project 62 Artificial Banana Leaf 36 x 26 inch in Pot

Target sells some of the most beautiful (and affordable) artificial plants we’ve seen, like this impressive banana leaf plant.

10 x 10 inch Threshold Artificial Eucalyptus Arrangement

If you’re looking for a tabletop greenery option, this plant has silver-green eucalyptus leaves, comes in a modern white melamine pot, and is sort of only $5.

Target Wondershop Pin-Sprig Dew-Drop LED String Lights

Strategist writer Dominique Pariso bought these lights with pine sprig pom poms to hang around her apartment for the holidays. Although they’re “definitely more decorative than useful,” Pariso says the soft glow is nice to have on winter nights. They’re also battery-powered, so you don’t have to worry about outlets when hanging them above your bed or in an entryway.

The strategist is designed to surface the most useful expert recommendations on things to buy in the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural remedies for anxietyand bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that offers may expire and all prices are subject to change.

Chinese buy Rolexes and Birkins to satisfy luxury cravings amid downturn https://coachfactoryoutlets2014.com/chinese-buy-rolexes-and-birkins-to-satisfy-luxury-cravings-amid-downturn/ Wed, 28 Sep 2022 01:08:00 +0000 https://coachfactoryoutlets2014.com/chinese-buy-rolexes-and-birkins-to-satisfy-luxury-cravings-amid-downturn/ SHANGHAI, Sept 28 (Reuters) – China’s coronavirus-induced economic slowdown is proving to be a boon for Zhu Tainiqi, the Shanghai-based founder of second-hand luxury goods marketplace ZZER, who is now seeking store space to develop its business.

SHANGHAI, Sept 28 (Reuters) – China’s coronavirus-induced economic slowdown is proving to be a boon for Zhu Tainiqi, the Shanghai-based founder of second-hand luxury goods marketplace ZZER, who is now seeking store space to develop its business.

The former venture capitalist is seeing an increase in people looking to sell their Hermès Birkin bags or Rolex watches to raise cash, as well as renewed interest from belt-tightening buyers.

“More and more people are now aware that they can sell luxury goods for money, and buyers are noticing that they can get a good deal,” said Zhu, 33. “They think, ‘Why not give it a shot?'”

Join now for FREE unlimited access to Reuters.com

He said the number of ZZER shippers, or people putting their wares up for sale, is up 40% so far in 2022 compared to the same period last year. The platform now has 12 million members and expects to sell 5 million luxury pieces this year.

The trend indicates a significant shift in the $74 billion luxury goods sector in China, where the second-hand luxury sub-segment has been slow to take off compared to other markets such as Japan and the United States. United States due to a preference for novelty and fears of buying unsuspectingly. a fake.

This could have ramifications for the China-focused strategies of major global luxury goods makers, which are grappling with slowing demand in the key market.

“I think because of the interest from China…it can really get some brands thinking about how they’re going to handle this (resale) market and what role they’re going to play in the whole market. process,” said Iris Chan, partner and head of client development at consultancy Digital Luxury Group.

China’s second-hand luxury market is expected to reach $30 billion in 2025 from $8 billion in 2020, consultancy iResearch said late last year. New estimates for this year have yet to be released.

HANDBAGS, JEWELRY

Office worker Wang Jianing plans to buy second-hand luxury goods, given the economic climate.

“My consumption will definitely go down (this year), but I still like what I like, and I can’t control the desire to buy it,” she told Reuters, standing in front of a wall displaying Louis Vuitton and Gucci bags in ZZER’s cavernous downtown Shanghai warehouse.

ZZER is banking on feelings like Wang’s for growth. The company, which started as an online platform in 2016, began opening offline stores in Shanghai and Chengdu last year and is now seeking more store space in Beijing, Guangzhou and Shenzhen.

Besides ZZER, other top platforms are local names, such as Feiyu, Ponhu, and Plum. Each of them has attracted tens of millions of dollars in venture capital funding in 2020 and 2021 with the goal of improving authentication practices, expanding customer reach and, in some cases, moving from online models only to offline online models.

According to analysts, the Chinese luxury resale market is likely to remain dominated by local players for the time being. International companies such as Vestiaire Collective and The RealReal have yet to enter the mainland Chinese market and confirmed to Reuters that they have no immediate plans to do so.

Although handbags remain the top-selling category on luxury platforms like ZZER, Zhu said sales of watches and jewelry are also growing rapidly.

While a Prada Messenger or Fendi Baguette nylon bag sells for 30-40% less on resale platforms than in luxury boutiques, some products have seen the price gap widen further as more and more shippers rush to sell goods online.

Veteran vintage saleswoman Ou Huimin, who opened her Ding Dang store in Guangzhou a decade ago and also sells nationwide via live streams, said market speculators had caused prices to skyrocket. leading luxury goods.

Ou said prices for Rolex Submariner watches rose nearly 250% between 2020 and 2021, but fell as much as 60% this year. “Now consumption has become more rational,” she added.

Fall has officially arrived and we are ready to celebrate. The fall equinox has arrived – September 22, 2022 – and that means it’s time to indulge in some of the pumpkin spice products we’ve seen on the shelves of grocery stores, drugstores, and more.

It’s a rookie mistake many of us have been guilty of – carrying luggage that’s too big, too heavy, or too uncomfortable to carry. I’m ashamed to admit that despite having worked in the travel industry for over 10 years, I recently, and accidentally, overpacked my hand luggage on an Australia-London flight. Much to the frustration of my fellow Qatar Airlines passengers, I had to go through the embarrassing rush of throwing what I could grab from our check-in suitcases. All that time spent organizing was wiped out in a moment of panic.

“It’s an easy mistake to make,” says aviation expert Jordan Rozario. “Especially since there is no industry-standard carry-on baggage allowance, and that’s where many travelers get caught.”

If, like me, you were surprised at check-in, you’ll know that the wrong carry-on can ruin a trip before it even begins. That’s why thought and research are needed to choose the right hand luggage for your flight – even more so than a check-in suitcase. To save you the administration, we’ve listed the best UK hand luggage options along with our top tips for choosing the right style for your trip.

Which bag is best for carry-on luggage?

As mentioned in our guide to the best suitcases in 2022, for carry-on luggage, we prefer soft-shell suitcases over hard-shell suitcases, as they tend to be more generous in terms of space. Some styles also have easy-to-reach exterior storage pockets that can be useful during transport. While it may be easier to fit more items in soft-shell suitcases, you should be careful not to exceed your airline’s weight limit and carry-on dimensions.

How much hand luggage can you take with easyJet?

According to the easyJet cabin baggage guide, the maximum size of hand luggage that fits under the seat is 45 x 36 x 20 cm (including handles or wheels). If you book a seat in the front or with more legroom or if you book a large piece of hand luggage for your flight, you may also have an additional bag to store in the overhead compartment, the size of which does not exceed 56 x 45 x 25 cm. To maximize your luggage while accommodating the allowance, try the Tripp Superlite Holdall for an underseat bag. For the overhead compartment bag, Aerolite’s cabin bag fits these exact dimensions and is one of the lightest cases on the market.

How much hand luggage can you take with Ryanair?

According to Ryanair baggage policy, all fare types passengers can bring a small bag which must fit under the seat and measure less than 40x25x20cm. If you purchase a “Priority and 2 cabin bags” fare, passengers can bring a small bag to slide under the seat and a 10 kg wheeled bag which must not exceed 55 x 40 x 20 cm. This American Tourister suitcase fits these exact dimensions and is available in a range of colors.

The best lightweight cabin suitcase

In terms of size, weight, price, design, and speedy delivery, Aerolite’s Cabin Suitcase (available on Amazon) ticks all the boxes. The dimensions of the case match most airline allowances including British Airways and easyJet, while the weight of the case is a very light 2.3kg. Of all the features, it’s the two outer pockets that make this one a winner, plus it’s excellent value for money at £99.

As with all Brics luggage, the Bellagio suitcase comes with a five-year warranty.

This Eastpak cabin suitcase has clever adjustable straps on the outside so you can make sure your luggage fits within the allotted size.

The best carry-on bags for long-haul flights

Most long-haul flights have generous carry-on baggage allowances, so bag dimensions are often less important. Instead, when your trip involves layovers, time zone changes, and multiple hours, having a comfortable, well-organized flight bag is the priority. Look for bags that are lightweight and have multiple pockets so it’s easy to grab what you need during transport and throughout your flight.

“He’s got the perfect face for makeup,” makeup artist Pierre LaRoche once said of David Bowie, whose extraordinary life is explored in the new documentary Lunar Reverie, in theaters worldwide today. This face slashed by lightning on its sane aladdin album cover; that forehead stamped with a gold sphere punctuating his celestial persona of Ziggy Stardust; that graphic electric blue gaze playing on her fiery red mullet in the “Life on Mars?” Musical clip. If the Brixton-born rocker’s love affair with makeup wasn’t a genetic predisposition, it was, at the very least, written in the stars.

As aware of what he applied to his face as he was of the poetic and lovely words he recited and the alluring and bizarre costumes he slipped into, Bowie’s makeup collection was a menagerie of treasures bought around the world. According to a 1973 music scene article entitled “David Bowie’s Makeup Dos and Don’ts”, he was a loyal customer of a small boutique in Rome, Italy, which had brightly colored multi-purpose powders, such as Make Up For Ever’s Pure Pigments, shovel. In tandem with bold shadows, he coated his lashes with black, sometimes blue, cake mascara and intense Indian smudges. kajal, or kohl, sticks close to the roots. To give his eye designs a bigger canvas, he canceled his eyebrows by shaving them off. Thus, taking her two-tone steely look to a new, otherworldly level.

LANXESS received the World Beverage Innovation Award 2022 in the “Best Beverage Ingredient” category for its natural preservative Nagardo. The 20th World Beverage Innovation Awards, launched by UK-based FoodBev Media Ltd, recognize innovation and excellence across all categories of the global beverage industry. The award ceremony took place on September 13, 2022, at the drinktec fair in Munich. The jury had previously evaluated more than 150 entries from 17 countries in 22 categories.

Monika Ebener, Global Marketing Manager for Natural Antimicrobials in the Beverage Technology Business Line at LANXESS, who has accompanied the natural preservative from discovery to product launch, accepted the award. “Receiving the World Beverage Innovation Award shows that Nagardo has already convinced beverage industry professionals. This reflects the voice of customers who are already successfully testing and using our new product,” says Ebener. The preservative is already used in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. With recent EU approval, LANXESS further expands Nagardo’s global presence.

Discovery of active ingredients by screening process

Due to its high water content combined with potential nutrients such as sugars and fruit components, a drink is an extremely sensitive product that can spoil within days if not processed by physical or chemicals. Beverage-damaging microbes should ideally be controlled by natural means. But natural ingredients, such as essential oils or certain extracts based on rosemary, cinnamon or onion, for example, provide less effective microbial protection than conventional preservatives. In addition, any influence on the taste of a drink should be avoided.

In its search for suitable products in the biosphere, the Dortmund-based start-up IMD Natural Solutions GmbH (INS), which has been part of the LANXESS Material Protection Products (MPP) business unit since 2017, has developed a program based on state-of-the-art search processes and search algorithms. One of the world’s largest siftable libraries of over 100,000 natural molecules from plants, bacteria, algae and fungi was searched for suitable active ingredients.

In this vast screening process, the most interesting results came from an edible mushroom that had hitherto received little attention: the Dacryopinax spathularia, or commonly known as “Ear of Sweet Osmanthus”. This edible mushroom is native to tropical and subtropical regions around the world, is bright orange in color and grows in the form of small, ear-like spatulas similar to the osmanthus flower.

The active ingredient is obtained by fermentation through an exclusive solvent-free food-grade process. It is made up of molecular congeners in a specific ratio, all of which consist of a sugar and a lipid moiety. This class of surfactant compounds that interfere with the cell membranes of microbes are therefore called natural glycolipids.

User-friendly marketing options and reliable protection against spoilage

Nagardo shows superior efficacy against typical beverage spoilage organisms compared to conventional preservatives. In most cases, a dosage several times lower than that of conventional excipients is sufficient. The broad spectrum of activity, even at low application concentrations, also shows excellent activity against heat-tolerant spore-forming organisms such as Alicyclobacillus species or representatives of genera Byssochlamys, Neosartorya as good as Talaromyces. It is also effective against organisms adapted to conventional preservatives, such as Zygosaccharomyces bailii.

At the recommended doses, Nagardo does not alter the sensory properties of a drink: the color, the smell and above all the taste are preserved as intended by the manufacturer. Therefore, natural glycolipids can be used in a wide range of beverages. Carbonated products in particular benefit from Nagardo, as no second preservative is usually needed.

Special dosing technology is also not necessary: ​​the powder is pre-dissolved in water and added to the beverage formulation when mixing the product. Nagardo remains in the drink and thus protects it naturally even after opening.

Cost-effective solution for filling sensitive products

Nagardo natural preservative allows manufacturers to adapt their portfolio to changing consumer awareness and growing demand for natural ingredients. “Our expanded offering opens up new possibilities for preservation. We want to participate even more in the global growth of the beverage market in the future with our brands Velcorin, which is one of the leading technologies for the antimicrobial stabilization of beverages, and our new Nagardo”, emphasizes Janmarc Heitmann, Head of MPP’s Beverage Technology business. . “Individually or in combination, our two technologies provide a cost-effective solution for the microbiologically safe filling of sensitive products,” emphasizes Heitmann. All filling systems, from glass/PET bottles to bricks, cans, kegs and bag-in-box can be served with both technologies.

Using Nagardo and Velcorin can help meet a company’s sustainability goals by reducing energy consumption when switching from hot fill or tunnel pasteurization to cold fill. Second, due to the lower wall thicknesses, less PET is needed for beverage bottles than with hot fill. When the two products are combined, depending on the application, other microbiological barriers, such as energy-intensive distribution and cold chain marketing, can be removed.

Criteria for selecting the appropriate technology

In addition to production efficiency, an overall cost consideration for the producer is a decisive selection criterion for the appropriate production platform. All costs incurred, i.e. one-time costs as well as running costs, must be taken into account. Cost drivers are, for example, heavy PET bottles for the hot-fill process and rising energy prices. Factors such as brand positioning, desired claims or the regulatory situation also influence the choice of preservation technology.

The great advantage of the Nagardo and Velcorin technologies is that they can be used without problems in new lines and also in combination with existing filling machines which were not initially intended for the filling of sensitive beverages. These are, for example, fillers for beer or classic soft drinks.

Behind the funding surge in travel and lifestyle https://coachfactoryoutlets2014.com/behind-the-funding-surge-in-travel-and-lifestyle/ Sun, 11 Sep 2022 19:32:33 +0000 https://coachfactoryoutlets2014.com/behind-the-funding-surge-in-travel-and-lifestyle/ NEW DELHI : The travel recovery has refocused attention on the travel and lifestyle segment, as investors seek to profit from the growth of new-era businesses.

NEW DELHI : The travel recovery has refocused attention on the travel and lifestyle segment, as investors seek to profit from the growth of new-era businesses.

Several new-era brands have raised venture capital in this space, including luggage maker Mokobara, which is looking to disrupt with new designs and innovative features.

“The way we travel has changed, but luggage hasn’t changed in decades, and it’s time to change that. At Mokobara, we’ve achieved many industry firsts, such as a 30-day trial on all of our products and luggage with smart features like USB charging and constant engagement with our consumers, which has given us an edge. which our competitors lack,” said Sangeet Agarwal, Founder of Mokobara.

Manu Chandra, founder of Sauce.VC, which invested in Mokobara in 2020, said the return of leisure and business travel is a huge tailwind. Airports and airlines are packed and hotels are packed, even without a full resumption of international travel to and from India. Moreover, the bags are also seeing a huge demand, with the opening of offices and colleges.

According to Agarwal, the increase in funding in this category is natural and will continue since direct-to-consumer is a great starting point, but brands in the new era will eventually have to be omnichannel.

The two-year-old company plans to expand offline retail with experience centers. The industry supply chain is complex and a luggage business cannot be built in a short time, Agarwal said. “It takes a long-term vision combined with a strong back-end, distribution strategy and expertise in brand building to create a dent,” Agarwal added.

Luggage space in India has fierce competition; VIP and Safari are present in the value range, while the price of Mokobara is between them and the more expensive Samsonite.

“Samsonite targets a business traveler with its predominantly black, gray and beige palate. Mokobara is unique in its very young and international designs with very high quality components on par with luxury brands like Away, Rimowa or Tumi, but at a price much lower than Samsonite,” said an investor in the space under covered with anonymity.

Luggage maker Acefour Accessories, which raised $7 million from Sixth Sense Ventures and Volrado Venture Partners, aims to woo consumers with many industry-first features.

“Our products have many USPs like rainproof zippers, 3x more water resistant material and premium recycled fabric with quality so good that our backpacks can hold up even when not not padded,” said Sudip Ghose, founder of Acefour.

Ghose said that although Acefour is in the pre-revenue stage, it has raised capital because the funds look at three things: “One, proposal; two, product; and three, the team. Our products have cutting-edge designs that stand out in terms of appearance and functionality. Finally, we have a team of highly dedicated professionals who understand the category, consumer and business nuances very well,” he said.

On a normal day, eating and drinking is strictly prohibited inside The Strand, one of New York’s most iconic bookstores. But Matthieu Blazy, creative director of Bottega Veneta, has a way of bending the rules and to fabulous effect.

The Strand’s iconic three-story building, located beneath Union Square and known for its creaky wood floors and towering stacks of books, has been transformed for intimate dining. On the top floor, where the boutique’s inimitable collection of rare books is usually housed, a mobile kitchen has been erected. An army of cooks whipped up lobster and burrata, seared halibut, shrimp and gnocchi in a red sauce and cocoa-dusted tiramisu. As the second floor became a warmly lit dining room, soft music filled the space. A sprawling fabric-covered table for fifty Blazy-approved guests sat in the center. Euphoria star Angus Cloud, musician Kevin Abstract, artist Arthur Jafa, actress Chloë Sevigny and model Bella Hadid were all in attendance. And right next to Hadid all night? A bag resulting from the bookish and fashion collaboration that the grand affair celebrated.

Blazy decided to partner with The Strand for one of his first collaborations as creative director, a role he has held for less than a year. The result: oversized leather totes screen-printed with The Strand logo. As dinner started, Blazy opened up about his special connection to The Strand, sharing the story of spending so long in the store that he fell asleep on the third floor. “I was reading a bad book,” he joked. (Blazy is certainly a bibliophile: the brand released a capsule inspired by the Olivetti typewriter earlier this year.)

During the night, Nancy Wyden, owner of The Strand, seemed amazed. At the cocktail party, which took place downstairs, Wyden gaped at the portraits of her father’s line that adorn the walls. The pictures show how the store has gone through the family since it opened in 1924 on the former ‘Book Row’ on 4th Avenue. She seemed moved.

“My ancestors, there’s Grandpa Ben, there’s Fred Bass, and there’s me with my dad,” she said, showing the footage. “I can’t stop thinking about what they would think about tonight. Never in a million years would they have thought our logo would be on a Bottega bag. Were they really fashion people? “Not at all,” she laughs.
