Umit sagt, Männer müssen männlich sein. Ich finde, da hat er Recht. Und was er männlich findet, zeigt der in Deutschland geborene Türke Jahr für Jahr auf den großen Modeschauen der Welt. Das er das richtig gut macht, findet nicht nur Suzy Menkes sondern auch sein Idol Nino Cerruti. Seine Fans wachsen, auch wenn er mit „Pennerbart“, Baggys und NavyJacket in seiner Wahlheimat Mailand aus dem klassischen Modedesigner-Style heraus sticht. Überhaupt, italienischer Glamour ist nicht sein Ding – Umit setzt auf ausbalancierte Schlampigkeit. Das sagt er übrigens selber von sich.
Ich finde den gut, also den Stil. Und auch ein bisschen den Umit. Wegen seinem Bart. Und weil er den Metrosexuellen Waschlappen endlich den gar aus macht. 

Seine Designs kannst du hier kaufen.

Umit says that men have to be manly. I think he’s right. And every year, on all the big fashion shows worldwide, the german-born turkish designer shows how he defines masculinity. Not only Suzy Menkes thinks he’s doing a good job – no, even his icon Nino Cerruti loves his work. And even though he doesn’t look like a stereotypical designer with all his baggy pants, the navy jackets and his „Hobo-Beard“, his fanbase is growing nevertheless.  Talking about his Style: Although living in Milan, all this italian glamour is not quite his cup of tea. Umit likes a sort of balanced slouchiness. His words, not mine.
I do like his style. And, let’s be honest, I like him. One of the reasons why is his beard. And the fact, that he and his designs are finally killing off those metrosexual weaklings.

This is Umit.
