(Dubai, United Arab Emirates) 19 July 2011 – Marks & Spencer Al-Futtaim, a leader in family fashion, beauty, food and home ware, today announced the partial availability of its special Back to School range of children’s clothing in all fifteen Marks & Spencer stores in the UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait and Oman.


Built for work and play, the new Back to School collection offers the unique combination of style, comfort, durability and affordability expected of Marks & Spencer children’s school clothing, together with the latest innovative features that benefit both children and parents. New features include Stain DefenceTM and Ultimate Non-Iron, both of which bring extra convenience for parents and children. Parents no longer need to worry about tough stains or ironing school wear, and children gain the freedom to enjoy and have fun in school.


Sapna Kumbhani, General Manager for Al-Futtaim – Retail Marketing said, “Our new Back to School collection re-iterates the Marks & Spencer commitment to provide superior quality products at reasonable prices. We know that while our customers want their children to be neat and tidy, they like getting messy while working and having fun. That’s why the collection has been designed with both style and durability in mind. We’re positive that by letting kids go back to school in style, but with the freedom to do what they do best, the collection will appeal greatly to our customers.”


The first wave of the Marks & Spencer Back to School 2011 collection is now available in all fifteen Marks & Spencer stores across the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt, Qatar, Kuwait and Oman. The full collection will be available by the end of July.
