Kashieca & RAFE @ Bench Fashion Week 2019

Kashieca is all about the modern Filipina women of all ages. I attended the Day 2 of the Bench Fashion Week last week featuring Kashieca. They are making a statement for Summer 2019 through the most delicate of fabrics and hues.

Let your nostalgia lead you to the great outdoors as Kashieca brings you pieces made for you to live, laugh, and love in. Think practical pieces with the brand’s signature feminine flair—sheer skirts, floral dresses, ruffled tops—all crafted with care to help you feel comfortable in your own skin.

The stars of this new collection – the brand’s A-list endorsers aside – include classic houndstooth trousers, an eye-catching geometric print skirt that pairs perfectly with a crisp white blouse, a ruffled crop top in a beautiful old rose shade, a dark floral robe dress, and pretty polka dots. Lots of them.

Slipping into the season’s romantic pieces and hitting the runway for Bench Fashion Week are main Kashieca Girl Bea Alonzo, and OG Filipina runway legends, Patty Betita, Suyene Chi, Desiree Verdadero-Abesamis, Marina Benipayo, Tweetie De Leon-Gonzalez and daughter Sabina, and Keri Zamora and daughter Amanda.

This summer story is the stuff of every woman’s dreams. So pack your bags and prepare to drift off into fantasy land. This is the Kashieca daydream. Don’t sleep on it.

Take a little piece of home with you no matter where you go.

New York-based Filipino designer Rafe Totengco and BENCH/ have collaborated once again for a collection of clothing and accessories inspired by the stunning shores of Siargao. Whereas their 2016 collaboration was inspired by the sights and sounds of New York City, the new Rafe x Bench collection is inspired by our own, and is all about loving and living local.

Comprised mostly of neutrals with pops of colors, prints, and patterns, this is a collection that is sporty, playful, and ultimately wearable. It’s also not gender-specific so you can wear it just how you like it. From polos and fanny packs peppered with bright yellow gumamelas to t-shirts and zip pouches bearing slogans like “mahal kita” and “pinoy surfer,” the collection is a fun reminder of all the good things the local island life has to offer.

See it irl as campaign stars Juliana Gomez, Rhys Eugenio, Derrick Monasterio, and Kim Chiu rock the collection on the Bench Fashion Week runway along with fellow Bench endorsers Gabbi Garcia, Grae Fernandez, Michelle Dee, Marco Gallo, Andre Lagdameo, Teejay Marquez, Manolo Pedrosa, Bryce Ramos, and Kisses Delavin.

Make waves with your summer style all year long with the new Rafe x BENCH/ collection.
