One of my favourite areas to explore in London is Bank / City of London. City of London is actually a city and county within London itself so the name may be a little confusing. Regular readers may have already seen me cover City of London in one of our photo journals but the diversity of the area keeps me coming back.
Bench is a British streetwear brand that was founded in Manchester in 1989 and has gone from strength to strength in recent years. They have their own stores all over the world including UK, Germany and Canada where they sell denim, trousers, sweats, hoodies, belts, bags and more. Keeping ears to the streets is a staple of any modern brand so when Bench partnered up with Brit Award winners, Rudimental to be the new faces of their Autumn/Winter 2016 campaign I was beyond excited.
‘Baby’ and ‘Feel the Love’ were some of my favourite tracks produced by British artists last year and it’s great to see bands you’ve followed for a while go from strength to strength. Keeping up the streetwear aesthetic I picked out some items from their AW16 range (which you can grab below) and set out exploring Bank on a quiet Sunday morning.
Hoodie – MARL HOODIE BILL WITH RUBBER PRINT
Trousers – TAPERED SLIM SWEATPANS
Shoes – MENSTAN SUEDE AND LEATHER BROGUE BOOTS
Sunglasses – RAYBAN LIGHT HAVANA
