Umit Benan cited repeated visits to Tokyo and its martial arts culture as the source of inspiration behind the collection — knowledge you would be hard-pressed not to notice amidst diners consuming sushi on a low table in the far end of the runway.

Benan does well to carve out his interpretation of Japan, albeit on a martial arts note.
