Bench has overhauled its collections for autumn 14 creating two new lines across menswear and womenswear.
The Life collection focuses on style while the Performance range takes a more sportswear approach, although new technology and fabrics – such as water-repellent finishes on cotton – are being used across both ranges.
The number of pieces in each collection has been reduced by about a quarter and price points have increased by up to a third as a result of introducing higher-quality fabrics.
Wholesale prices now range from £10 for jersey tops to £92 for outerwear, with a 2.5 mark-up. Bench has 184 UK accounts.
Nick Barber, head of design for men at Bench, said: “Additional features like light reflectivity, multi-pocketing and inner details have been specifically designed to meet the needs of contemporary city dwellers always on the go.”
