We've been regaled with tales of London-based, Filipino designer Lesley Mobo's achievements since his homecoming in 2004. And much as it's wonderful to see his work in glossies or online, shuttling off to London to buy a dress from his line for Jasmine di Milo seems a bit, well, difficult.

Good news though, Filipinas finally can cease to be mere spectators and now own something by Mr. Mobo with the latest offering of Bench Body.

Mobo for Bench made its first appearance during the annual Bench Blackout earlier this year. It's taken a few months for the lingerie to finally hit the stores and those who've been anticipating its arrival can finally scoot on over.

Lesley's line is a lot less Agent Provocateur and a little more Prada Sport. Color-blocked underwires give an athletic touch to the bosom, which takes on a pin-up feel paired with panties that bear the slightest ruffled skirt. Add candy cane striped garter and dotted mesh to the mix and you're set with a line of fancy skivvies.

Mobo for Bench is now available in all Bench Body stores and selected Bench, Herbench, and Superbench stores nationwide. For more information on the Mobo for Bench line, visit the Bench website at
