Two years ago my fashion and life partner brought Mr. Umit Benan to my attention with this post. A few weeks ago, I came across this Dazed Digital presentation, complete with a video; the photos copped, collaged and pasted below; and some vaguely explanatory text.
The short story is as follows: this is a menswear collection for spring 2013. It is named "I Once Loved a Woman Who Loves Menswear..." Well, that makes two of us. (Self-love is essential!) The runway presentation began with men rising from bed. The idea is that they are in love with a woman who loves menswear. So, when they get up, they put on her clothes. And they are perfect for him. They are also perfect for me.
I wanna explore these colors, work these shapes, and acquire some wide-vertical-stripe pants. But mostly, I want those vertical stripe pants.
