The exclusive bag will feature a (RED) inspired design and photograph by Helena Christensen, who personally attended the launch at Maasmechelen Village, one of the nine Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages near Brussels, on Tuesday 6 November.

Visitors to the nine Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages will discover a lively programme showcasing the very best promotions from international luxury fashion and lifestyle brands, as well as unique in-Village animation to create a world where the colour red truly comes alive.  

Chic Outlet Shopping® and (RED) are working towards a larger partnership for the month of February, in conjunction with Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year, where all nine Villages will be transformed into all things (RED) with special activities to raise awareness and funds in the fight against AIDS.

"We are proud to partner with (RED) in collaboration with Helena Christensen to help support the Global Fund in their pursuit of an AIDS-free world. Our goal is to leverage the power of our global platform to raise awareness of this important cause amongst our international shoppers. This partnership is in keeping with the Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages' ongoing commitment to supporting humanitarian projects around the world."

"When Chic Outlet Shopping approached me with this project I was excited to get involved. I have been a longtime supporter of (RED) and am thrilled that the sale of the bag will contribute to the goal of achieving an AIDS-free generation by 2015."

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
