Bench Collaborates with International Designer Rafe Totengco - Lifestyle Asia

Manila’s fashion set gathered at Bench Tower’s The Playground for the launch of the Rafe x Bench collection, a collaboration between Filipino – American Designer Rafe Totengco and Bench. Celebrities and Bench endorsers Gabbi Garcia, Derrick Monasterio, and Diego Loyzaga walked the runway together with personalities Chef JP Anglo and Interior Designer Nix Alañon to showcase Rafe’s capsule collection that paid homage to New York City, a place he has called home for the last 21 years.

The collection was created for fashionable Filipinos with practicality in mind, Rafe says “The pieces are meant to be worn multiple times, with as many combinations as possible.” The collection would not be complete without Rafe’s signature bags that range from graphic pouches to black multi-pocket tote bags.

Lucy Torres Gomez, Dawn Zulueta, Tessa Prieto Valdes, Belle Daza, Raymond Gutierrezm Victor Basa and Rajo Laurel were some of the famous personalities that were seen at Rafe’s homecoming show mounted by Bench’s main man Ben Chan.
