Initial reaction:


Game, set, match: street cast models hit the courts in pinstripe sweats and quilted shorts, before changing into double-breasted, pristine cream suiting.

How it was worn:


Tennis court patches adorned jumpers and jackets, while scarves hung around necks like gym towels. Racket handles poked out of leather sports bags and tan backpacks – and everything was worn with crisp white pumps.




Sophisticated sportswear:


The inspiration of socialite photographer Slim Aarons was apparent throughout the collection. Deep pile dressing gowns and supple suede trenches appeared lifted off the back of Aarons’s celebrity subjects as they lounge in their villas. The Umit Benan SS15 man is privileged: a jet setter, an athlete – one who likes his sportswear tailored, and his tailoring crisp and sporty.

Last season, Umit Benan paid homage to Jackie Robinson, the first African American baseball player. See it below:
