We often take our undies for granted at the thought that no one will really see them anyway. But at the Bench show, undergarments are all there is to see. Leaning in a little closer, we delve into the details of how the looks were styled and put together to create something so elaborate with just very minimal clothing. Scroll down and let's get started.
The show started off with a white wipe out as models came out clad in "X" marked separates, embellished caged corsets, neoprene cardigans, and chunky shoes.
Dubai-based designer Michael Cinco took the second segment of the show by storm with a 360 degree turn by going black. Sheer panelled shape wear, pegasus-printed boxers, knee-high gladiator heels, silver lace appliqued capes, and embellished intimates took center stage with Solenn Heussaff taking the lead.
Color came in with a bright flash of red for the third segement with bold striped, floor-sweeping sleeves, and bum-grazing braids. Check out utilitarian skirt on Shaina Magdayao and jackets wrapped around the waists of Julia Montes and Jessy Mendiola.
Moving over to the denim side of the show, girls like Sarah Lahbati and Max Collins were spotted in high waisted shorts and wide-legged pants that referenced a '70s vibe,m while the boys Sam Conception, Richard Gutierrez, brothers Jeron and Jeric Teng, and Andre Paras sported loose, shorts and jeans with track stripes reminiscent of the '90s.
The Teen King and Queen, Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo had a look all to their own with their matching outfits of appliqued denim.
A full specturm of colors lit up the stage for the last half of the show starting with pastel neon undies on Allison Harvard paired with highlighter-colored PVC shifts and raincoats. It then transitioned into cyan, magenta, and yellow neoprene jackets and sporty, candy-colored body suits. The segment finished off with Marian Rivera in popping pink.
To close, as all the models came out for their final tableu, we saw a vivid display of floral brassieres and printed bottoms playfully styled with holographic brogues, polarized sunnies, and candy-like sneakers.
