Umit Benan Menswear Spring Summer 2015 Paris

“Pablo Escobar goes to a tennis club,” said designer Umit Benan about the idea that sparked his spring/summer 2015 fashion show. It was a lethally good combination as Benan produced a collection of casual sophistication that was a serious sartorial love match.

Employing a color palette of greens and blues, which echoed the shades used on tennis courts, Benan sent out a collection of luxe activewear. There were jacquard track pants, blue or green suede “bathrobe” coats, and shirts and sweaters that cleverly incorporated the graphic image of the courts onto the garments. Striped tennis whites, both shorts and suits, smartly extended out the theme, as did some covetable leather racket and athletic bags.

Maybe it was the street casting, or the charming introductory serenade by a Colombian mariachi, but Benan’s ability each season to ground his collections in the real world is what continues to make his work feel both relevant and reliable.

This season it was game, set, and match with Benan’s man the clear winner.
