MANILA – The Filipino clothing line Bench welcomed 2014 by opening a branch in its Southeast Asian neighbor, Singapore.

Bench’s first branch in the city-state is located at the Metro City Square mall, which also houses several imported brands.

The new store features posters of Bench celebrity endorsers such as Kapamilya stars Kim Chiu, Kathryn Bernardo and Coco Martin.

Founder Ben Chan said he is happy to have finally opened a Bench store in Singapore.

“Thank you for supporting our first store in the island state. Hope you continue patronizing our Filipino pride,” Chan said in an Instagram post.

Aside from the Philippines and Singapore, Bench also has branches in China and the United States.
