Bench is the pinnacle of my early years experimenting with brands. Every girl in my class as a young girl wanted an iconic Bench hoodie that boasted the label name either on the sleeve or arm of whatever it was they wore. Even back then, Bench evoked a certain level of status.
In today’s age, logo wear by non-high end designers (Gucci tshirts?) hardly have an audience. Or maybe I’m just not a part of this audience. Either way, Bench maintains a certain quality to their work that allows them to appear timeless. Yes, their logo tees are still in existence, but their latest 90’s inspired heritage collection takes the whole fad of logo brandishing to a trendy yet nostalgic level. My top pick from the collection are these track pants that repeat the Bench logo up the sides. A little more modest, yet decidedly 90’s with the turquoise and purple colour combination, these pants mould to the street wear/athleisure trend that’s stormed the east coast.

Another item from Bench (non-logo related) that was perfect for my summer travels is this black maxi shift dress:
It was perfect for unbearably hot Tuscan summer weather because of the loose, breezy silouhette. It could also easily be dressed up for dinner or down for traveling on the plane. My sister and mother even ended up stealing this dress from me!
