The new Umit Benan collection for the Fall/Winter 2016 season does well in blending styles which draw from different cultures and historical moments.

A designer who's now based out of Turkey but was born in Germany, Umit Benan is a talented creative who's never afraid to supply his apparel with unconventional components -- some of his past work taking ques from retro sportswear, ski gear and fishing wear.

For the new Umit Benan collection, the designer takes from American and Japanese heritage, combining styles that were most prominently worn in the past. Despite the time that his style inspiration was taken from, Umit Benan manages to imbue the pieces with a modern feel -- with mismatched ensembles that flaunt bold patters and colors.
