Brooklyn Beckham Just Made The Ultimate Style Move
Budding photographer and superstar spawn Brooklyn Beckham was in town over the weekend for the book signing of his debut photo book What I See as well as the opening of the three-floor Bench flagship store in Bonifacio High Street as one of the retail giant's newest international brand ambassadors.
At 18, Beckham is making his own name in the game—he notably shot Burberry fragrance's campaign in 2016—and his style is all his, too. The more laidback Beckham was spotted in a Bench ringer tee in all his appearances, a design that's part of the Bench Heritage series, the vintage collection reworked for today in commemoration of the company’s 30th anniversary.
Among its first wearers is OG brand ambassador Richard Gomez, who also wore the T-shirt to the opening (wife Lucy Torres-Gomez was there, too). Beckham dressed it up with a navy bomber jacket.
Once the multi-level space officially opened, Beckham made a beeline to the Bench Design Studio, a T-shirt personalization booth exclusive to the flagship store. He went for a plain tee (P459.75 with free vinyl print) and customized it with his name at center and his birth year under it: “Since 1999.” Minutes later, it was ready for pick up.

Grooming-wise, Beckham took a departure from his slickback—arguably made famous by his dapper footballer father David—and let his natural curls loose with a shorter cut and mussed up finger-styling.
You can get the look from Bench Barbers or Bench Fix on the flagship store's third floor and then kick back at the Bench Café on the second floor, where Beckham ate Filipino street food with Ben Chan and some of the country's most beautiful, toasting with a glass of Circa 1987, the bar's signature drink.
Here's to the Brooklyn, Bench, and the future.
