Umit Benan - Menswear Autumn/Winter 2014/2015 Show in Paris

Umit Benan advocates his rejection of racism through his clothes. His inspiration starts with the 1940s, with the Brooklyn Dodger’s Number 42: Jackie Robinson, an American hero who fought for freedom, the designer also paying homage to Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela. The baseball-pitch setting creates an authentic atmosphere with each model sporting a baseball-glove as a mask. Other sporty traits appear throughout this thoroughly American collection: letters are sewn-on like badges whilst quilted baseball shirts are omnipresent. A promoter of peace, Umit Benan, makes a memorable arrival at Paris Fashion Week, having presented for many seasons in Milan.Music from the show
