how to research trends But is the only place you find cashmere wool coat from Kashmir? Not at all, although the origins of the word came from the Kashmir area from the Persian times, we are fortunate that many other locations are now producing cashmere. One in particular is in Inner Mongolia, northern China. This area is the biggest producer of cashmere goats in the wool. Vary the pressure when working with color to give the sketch shadows and highlights. Never mind coloring outside the lines, because neatness in drawing doesn count much compared with the tangible creation that results from the idea. Some designers even purposefully color outside the outline, making the sketch more artistic and abstract. Many films of the 1940s centered on the trials and tribulations of the brave men and women fighting for freedom in Europe and the Pacific. In order to express its support for the hardships and rations endured during the War by regular citizens, Hollywood created simple and subdued costumes during this period. Women dressed in simple suits or slacks with sensible shoes. Batman Forever Return of Swamp Thing (Truly bad but I couldn make a strong enough case to call it a superhero film) Elektra Meteor Man (This film almost made my list but I left if off since it is mainly a spoof) Ghost Rider Dick Tracy And finally, I have to mention one film that was excluded that perhaps deserves the number one spot and that the 1994 Fantastic Four film that was never released theatrically or on video although it been heavily bootlegged. Intending it to be a $40 big budget film, the producer, Neu Constantin was about to lose his rights to the film and had to produce something. He hired director Roger Corman to make the film but not for $40 million. Matchy Matchy doesn't always work in the fashion world because sometimes you have to mix and match your outfits along with a little color. With the rules of wearing white after labor day doesn't really apply anymore. In fashion, you'll need to take certain risks without being afraid to strut your stuff in those outfits that you own. Are you one of those people that know exactly what you want but you have trouble finding it. Try looking for it on Ebay. You will be shocked to find exactly what you are looking for in a very reasonable price. Should petite women buy, tweak, or skip the animal influences trend for fall/winter 2010/2011? I say tweak on this fall fashion trend. Furs, whether real or faux, tend to be quite bulky, so petite women should wear them with care. For example, a fur lined hood may work better than a full length fur coat.

2013 Mazda Atenza Launched in Japanese Domestic Market

Mazda Motor Corporation has officially launched the all-new Mazda Atenza in Japan. This model is also known overseas as Mazda6. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the all-new Mazda Atenza ranges from 2,500,000 yen to 3,400,000 yen including tax. Likewise, Mazda expects to sell 1,000 units per month in their domestic market.

The all-new Atenza is Mazda’s flagship model and adopts the company’s new-generation SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY and new design theme, KODO – Soul of Motion. All model grades are equipped with the full range of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY in order to provide powerful and refined driving with a comfortable and high quality ride. The engine line-up includes the SKYACTIV-D 2.2, a highly-efficient and powerful new-generation clean diesel engine. All models come with i-stop, Mazda’s idling stop system, and i-ELOOP, a new brake energy regeneration system.

 

The all-new Atenza also incorporates i-ACTIVSENSE, a series of advanced safety technologies designed to support safe driving. Using cameras and millimeter-wave radars to detect obstacles, i-ACTIVSENSE includes systems which automatically apply the brakes in an emergency, sound an alarm if the vehicle drifts out of its lane, and prevent the car from taking off if the driver mistakenly steps on the accelerator instead of the brake. The all-new Atenza offers an ideal driving environment. The driver’s field of vision has been widened by moving the A-pillar rearward and positioning the tire house farther forward has allowed a natural pedal layout with no offset. Make no mistake, the all-new Atenza is exactly the same look as the upcoming Mazda6 in our shore.

World Premiere of Lexus LF-CC Concept @ 2012 Paris Motor Show

Lexus will unveil the all-new hybrid coupe concept at the 2012 Paris International Motor Show, which points to future mid-size luxury vehicles to come from the luxury marque. This concept named as “LF-CC”, it draws inspiration and design elements from the award-winning LF-LC concept, which debuted at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show earlier this year.

The coupe design also draws influence from project LFA, with careful attention paid to aerodynamic design that combines form with function. It is powered by an all-new, highly efficient 2.5-litre hybrid drivetrain driving the rear wheels.

The 2.5-litre, 4 cylinder, Atkinson cycle hybrid powerplant will also feature D4-S injection (direct and port injection), which boosts power delivery and efficiency of the engine, while aiding in the delivery of a low CO2 emissions, targeted below 100g/km. Combined, the hybrid drivetrain will achieve class-leading energy efficiency, with more than 1.47kW of power (2 hp) produced per gram of CO2. The drivetrain is also set to become a feature of the Lexus line-up in the future, with Lexus confirming its intent to launch the powerplant to the lexus range in the near future.

 

Lexus will unveil the LF-CC at the Paris Motor Show on September 27 at 8:45am (Central European Summer Time) @ Hall 4, stand 120.

According to our source, both models displayed at the Paris Motor Show will feature Mazda’s new SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel engine. Sales of the 2013 Mazda6 will begin in Europe later this year.

 

The official name of the motor show is Paris Mondial de l’Automobile 2012. The show will be opened to the public from 27 September to 14 October 2012. The first two days will be press days and the remaining days will be opened to the general public.

The New Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 4S @ 2012 Paris Motor Show

The new 991 series of Porsche 911 has introduced the new generation of the 911 Carrera 4 and 4S. The 911 Carrera 4 comes with the latest version of the active all-wheel drive system PTM (Porsche Traction Management). The typical Porsche all-wheel drive with rear-focused layout in this latest 911 version guarantees maximum vehicle dynamics in wider road and climate conditions.

The new Porsche 911 Carrera 4 will make its first public appearance at the 2012 Paris International Motor Show. The new 911 models will launch at the end of 2012.

 

Porsche 911 Carrera 4 und 4S

 

The new all-wheel drive 911 is being launched on the market in four versions – as the 911 Carrera 4 and 911 Carrera 4S and each as Coupé and Cabriolet. They sport the same traits as the rear-wheel drive versions: their lightweight body design, suspension, engines and gearboxes are identical, the only exception being modifications related to the all-wheel drive. This means that despite a higher level of engine and driving performance, all four models consume significantly less fuel than the previous models; total savings for individual versions are as much as 16 per cent. In addition, the new 911 Carrera 4 is up to 65 kg lighter in weight.

 

The most distinct identifying feature of the 911 with all-wheel drive is still the wide rear section: compared to the two-wheel drive 911 Carrera models, the rear wheel housings each extend further outward by 22 mm, and the rear tyres are each ten millimetres wider. The traditional red light band that connects the two taillights has also taken on a new form.

 

IF

 

The new 911 Carrera 4 models have a 7-speed manual gearbox as standard, and the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) gearbox is available as an option. The 911 Carrera 4 Coupé with 350 hp can sprint from 0-100 km/h in as little as 4.5 seconds, 4.7 seconds for the Carbiolet and reach a top speed of up to 285 km/h, while 282/h for the Cabriolet. Fuel consumption with PDK is 8.6 l/100 km for the Coupé and 8.7 l/100 km for the Cabriolet.

 

Porsche 911 Carrera 4 und 4S

 

The Coupé and Cabriolet of the 911 Carrera 4 S each have a 3.8-litre rear-mounted boxer engine that produces 400 hp. The acceleration takes 0-100km/h in 4.1 seconds for the Coupé, while 4.3 seconds for the Cabriolet. The top speed up to 299km/h for the Coupé, while 296km/h for the Cabriolet. Fuel consumption values with PDK are 9.1 l/100 km for the Coupé and 9.2 l/100 km for the Cabriolet.

 

In the new 911 Carrera 4, a new menu in the instrument cluster informs the driver how the PTM all-wheel drive is currently distributing engine power. In addition, with the debut of the 911 Carrera all-wheel drive models Porsche is introducing the optional Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) to the entire model range, which controls distance to traffic ahead and vehicle speed. When ordered with PDK, the ACC system adds the safety function Porsche Active Safe (PAS), which helps to prevent front-end collisions. In addition, Porsche offers a new sliding glass sunroof as an optional feature for the 911 Carrera Coupé. Driving 911 cars with a manual gearbox and Sport Chrono pack can now be even sportier: In Sport Plus mode, the system automatically double-declutches during downshifts.

 

Lastly, the new Carrera 4 and 4S models replace a very successful previous 997-series, of which a total of about 24,000 units have been sold since 2008.
