Want to make a refreshing fashion statement? Ready to unleash your inner style superstar? Well, it’s about time you set a brand new craze! How? With the new Coca-Cola Originals by Bench!

A trendy thank you gift by the Coca-Cola’s Happiness President in line with the brand’s centennial celebration in the Philippines, the power forces that brought us the much talked about Coca-Cola Smile Statement Shirts are once again teaming up to bring a complete, new line of hip, energizing fad for the new breed of Filipino teens and teens-at-heart.

In this second groundbreaking partnership, the world’s beloved icon of happiness, Coca-Cola, and the phenomenal proudly-Pinoy lifestyle brand, Bench, guarantee that the fashion domination will be much greater- a hundred times the excitement, a hundred times the fun! With these two pop icons in creative collaboration, the collection is a confident badge of Filipino youthfulness.


Of course, a partnership so epic could only bring nothing less than breakthrough surprises. First up is the much-awaited reveal of the new league of Coca-Cola’s happiness ambassadors in the name of four of the hottest teen idols of today: Enchong Dee, Julia Montes, Joseph Marco and Kathryn Bernardo. Together, they will lead the youth all over the nation to wear their bright hopes for the future and declare what makes them happy. “The Coca-Cola Originals by Bench is our generation’s way of making a remarkable statement. Wearing it affirms our choice to join Coca-Cola’s uber exciting 100th year celebration and to continue spreading happiness among others,” says Enchong.

Indeed, opening happiness wherever, whenever is fashionably much easier this time around as we’d all get to fash up with a full line co-branded apparel and merchandise collection. Imagine not only having the coolest, uniquely designed tees to flaunt around but also matching bags, key chains, caps and even tumblers! If that doesn’t excite you yet, you might also want to grab accessories of all kinds to pump up your style. And the best part is, they are all available at Bench stores nationwide the whole year round, starting February 1, 2012.

With a bottle of our favorite Coca-Cola in hand, now all of us have the power to show our indestructible spirit through fashion and be happiness ambassadors, ourselves. As how chic star-on-the-rise Julia Montes says: “I want to wear it because it shows that I enjoy life to the fullest and that I’m a happy person. Every piece is just a daily reminder of how resilient and optimistic we are as a nation, just like every bottle of Coke. That’s why I love it.”

If you are a sucker for graphic tees, fashionable art or simply a fella who loves staying in style, the Coca-Cola Originals by Bench will suit you perfectly. More so if you are a big fan of Coca-Cola! Many of the iconic elements we’ve known for decades such as the Spencerian script, the contour bottle and bright red color patterns, have been fused with Bench’s youthful, dynamic vibe that Pinoys all over the country and the world have loved throughout the years. The result? Chic designs that stand out and exude that happy, uplifting energy; all you can wear wherever the party’s at or even at simple, fun hang-outs with the whole gang!

Of course, the experience would be always be much more complete when you got a refreshing bottle of Coke in hand as you work every runway in your school, barangay or across town, steal the scene and show everybody what you’ve got! Just make sure it’s ice-cold so you enjoy its delicious taste and unique fizz perfected over the last 100 years!

AJ Rafael kicks Off Red Roses Tour

AJ RAFAEL kicks off his Red Roses Tour in Southeast Asia produced by Monsoon Productions. The tour kicks off on January 13 and will be visiting Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. The tour includes the AJ Rafael Band consisting of AJ Rafael, Noah Bartfield, Danny Morledge, Andrew Rhim, and guest artists Krissy and Ericka Villongco from the Philippines. The second leg of the tour, produced by Nojon Entertainment happens in Australia visiting Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. 

AJ Rafael, is a 22-year old music artist from Moreno Valley, California. AJ has garnered a worldwide audience with his original music, videos on YouTube.com, and live performances in the US, Canada, Australia, Europe and the Philippines. With over 350,000 subscribers on YouTube, 200,000 fans on Facebook, and 90,000 followers on Twitter, AJ Rafael’s fan base grows steadily worldwide. The Red Roses tour hopes to reach AJ Rafael’s fan base demand in Southeast Asia and return to one of his second homes, Australia. AJ was also included in the short-list of the Grammys last year for its non-traditional/on-line category.

It should be noted that one of AJ’s major musical influences is Gary Valenciano whom he recently performed with live on ASAP 2012 when he was formally introduced to the mainstream Filipino music-loving market. AJ also took notice of Gabriel Valenciano’s and Kiana Valenciano’s cover version of Chris Brown’s “Yeah Yeah Yeah.” AJ saw their performance on YouTube and liked it and corresponded with Kiana via Twitter. Today, AJ finished collaborating with Kiana as they recorded a song with Gab as the producer.

Alongside the tour and through a partnership with PhilDev, AJ has adopted the CRIBS Foundation, a welfare institution committed to the care and recovery of abandoned and abused children in the Philippines. Proceeds from red roses at the Manila concert will go to CRIBS. AJ, during his trip is exploring additional ways to give back to the Philippines. AJ and his team are in discussions with the Ninoy and Cory Aquino Foundation on how to partner for future advocacy and campaigns. 

“We are excited to have AJ Rafael perform for the first time for his fans in the Philippines, Southeast Asia and return once again to Australia, where they have been long time supporters of AJ. We are grateful for the opportunity to bring AJ’s music here. More importantly we are fortunate to have great partners to help us introduce non-profit organizations who need assistance in the Philippines. This first visit marks beginnings and new opportunities for many,” says Christina Luna, AJ Rafael’s manager.

AJ’s show in Manila happens at the Music Museum on Jan. 18.
