Umit Benan's Cuba Collection

July 5, 2009 |

Umit Benan's Spring/Summer 2010 collection was inspired by Cuban luxury lifestyle. With the use of traditional colors and fabrics all coming from the Caribbean nation, the big volume and exaggerated silhouettes were the highlight of his collection with the addition of linen, jerseys and rough fabrics . "Though the collection features also a few overalls, they are not inspired by workwear, but they represent the wealthy lifestyle of my characters. As a whole I would define the collection purposely tacky yet modern." explained by Umit Benan on an interview with Dazed Digital. "Many men are afraid of wearing garments with feminine details and in my collection they represent the antitheses to my more masculine designs."
