Before the year ended, apparel and lifestyle brand Bench opened its flagship store in BGC and judging from its three-storey building, we’re guessing it has everything. Bench is known for thinking big — from collaborating with famous designers and bringing international stars as its ambassadors — and now it has put everything you’ll ever need in one place. Once you enter the flagship store, you’ll be greeted by a millennial aesthetic that combines minimal designs, wide space, and Instagrammable corners. The store features its usual apparel, jeans, accessories, bath and body products, shoes, and bags. But when you go up to the second and third floor that’s when the party begins. There’s a grooming room or salon and the most awaited Bench café is designed by Miguel Pastor and the food and drinks will be under the Foodee group. We’ve got a sneak peek at what’s inside the café before its official opening and right before the crowds swarm in its stylish doors.
