Show Review: Umit Benan Fall 2014 Menswear
By Faith

Turkish designer Umit Benan makes a strong impact for his first showing in Paris, sending Jackie Robinson-inspired looks down the runway on an entirely black cast of male models. The designs harked back to the 40′s, showing that old-school expert tailoring will always be relevant.

Suiting in Fall-perfect textures including suede and tweed are given an Americana spin with fedoras, striped ties, and solid knit turtlenecks underneath.

Bomber jackets and sportcoats are emblazoned with the varsity letter “B”: perhaps standing for either Benan or baseball, the sport Mr. Robinson played so well. There’s no denying the functionality of these pieces: sure to please a modern-day dandy or two.

Quilted detailing adds to the sports-inspired feeling of the collection on the sleeves of jackets, head-to-toe plaid getups, and trousers.

Winter white has reared its head this autumn and Benan intends for it to stick around for Fall 2014. The hues gives a crisp feeling to three-piece suits, cozy toggle coats with plaid sleeves, and functional sweaters, shirts, and trousers. Camel also has a moment on a duffel coat that is sure to keep its wearer warm for the season.

I can definitely see stylish men including Andre 3000, Pharrell Williams, and the guys of Street Etiquette in pieces from this collection. The clothes are so cool that they can even work for women like myself who love an oversized jacket and sweater.

    I love this collection! Definitely well executed, unexpected, and a fresh take on the runway. Each individual piece seems to be functional in young males lives.

    SN: I did not care for the orange jumpsuit “seemed too prison ensemble inspired”. But, this collection is it!

  2. Stacey says:

    I really liked this collection! His choice of models was interesting too….from young to mature looking stylish indeed

  3. Rilane says:

    Styling with 7 photos are great :) I like guys in hats :)

  4. yonaton says:

    a few pieces are wearable. but I’m not feeling it. the designer is definitely trying to do his own spin to the urban prep/gent look, but I’m not 100 on it. detailed yes. but I’m over the ill-fitting look

  5. Jen says:

    OMG yesss! I love the man that wears these clothes. I’m so tired of the tight colorful clownish clothes these guys are calling men’s fashion. Side note…Stevie J is that you?? (14th pic down)

  6. Madpet says:

    I’ve suddenly fell in lust!! Everything about this collection is it. I believe his runway shows have always been diverse. And yes, the 14th pic down is a clone of Stevie J!!

    I wasn’t feeling it. This just is not a good line to me. Some of the pieces were too big. The quilt pants with the baseball jersey were the worse.
