Umit Benan is determined to put Turkey on the fashion map. After all, his homeland is the inspiration behind his SS '11 collection. Istanbul's ultra-relaxed coffee shops and sartorial attitude take on new life in Umit Benan's collection of baggy trousers and double-breasted jackets.

Benan's SS '11 collection is very Old World, but at the same time has a modern point of view. The pieces were anchored by chocolates, navy blues and earth-inspired hues that, without a doubt, added to its Turkish charm.
