About UMIT BENAN

Although Turkish menswear designer Umit Benan initially planned on a career in filmmaking, he translated his urge to tell stories into a clothing line founded in 2009, after working under Marc Jacobs and Sophie Theallet. With a focus on Ottoman-influenced tailoring and refined masculinity, his collections are always conceived with a fully realized character in mind. No matter what their theme, they project a quality of relaxed and confident sophistication embodied by the men who inspire them.
