ok, so it's a press release, so what? every other year, bench holds one of the most anticipated events of the year, the underwear show. we're really looking forward to this year's show because bench has yet to top the first one they held at araneta coliseum in 2002 (previous ones were held at world trade center and mars disco), which people were talking about for months! and especially since the one in 2004 was a bit of a letdown (we liked the french acrobats and the japanese drummers, but the underwear show itself, um, er, no comment). this year, the bench underwear show will be held again at the araneta coliseum on june 30, so keep the date free and make your connections now as those tickets will be the most coveted and most difficult to get (that is, if you want to sit on the front row. tickets are usually given away when you make a purchase at any bench store). this time it will be directed by robby carmona (a departure from ariel lozada who has been a bench favorite), and we heard from a reliable source that this year's theme is disco. segments will be styled by designers patrice ramos-diaz (who is now based in shanghai), rhett eala and randy ortiz, and by society-column staples tim yap and tessa prieto-valdes. hair and makeup will be by patrick rosas's team and propaganda. bring your binoculars!
