The AW12 range combines Bench’s heritage with a functional approach to clothes. Reaching new heights and new landscapes, the line brings the hills and the mountains to the city. Nordic-inspired sweat fabrics and shaggy fleece linings give the collection a modern winter feel. Practical, down-to-earth and utilitarian details mixed with traditional finishes and features create a unique, fresh style.
The supporting theme is the culture clash. Inspired by new media, music and technologies. Always on, always plugged in, the line is created for a digital world awash with sights and sounds. The connected generation, experiencing life and friendships in full colour. Sharing the same base colour palette as the womenswear line, phase two is all about the bright lights of the skyscrapers.
Bright pop tones glimmer against black, charcoal and deep navy. Offbeat brights bring character and twist to the traditional winter palette, whilst a rustic influence comes in the form of Seal Brown, Picante and Blue Mirage for a more traditional feel.
