SS16 'Comandante' - This one maybe a little too literal, possibly controversial, imagining Fidel Castro and Che Guevara celebrating a victory over the Batista regime. Lovely looking clothes though.

W16 'Tokyo Diaries' - A kind of dark night in the Tokyo backstreets collection, inspired by repeat visits to the Japanese city and stylized Martial Arts films.

W16 Tokyo Diaries was his last European show, saying he wasnt going to do fashion shows anymore but was then invited to Tokyo Fashion Week and decided to show his latest Spring 2017 collection there.

SS17 'Los Bastardos' - A Mexican in Texas.

The new season looks really good. It's such a shame there's no bigger sizes on his webstore and outside of Japan it's nearly impossible to find, which is likely why he only has smaller sizes.
If anybody knows stockists other than Park in copenhagen please let me know.
It doesn't look like KM20 in Russia has stocked him for a few years now, I don't think Simons in Canada does either. The Loit stopped carrying him (@LOITDan if you have any kind of info, like if he as has pulled out of the North American market if you just stopped stocking him cos he didn't sell well, it would be good to know)

Yeh there is some nice looking stuff in the new collection. As for stockists it seems like they've all disappeared outside of a few obscure Japanese ones, there was a place called Jogging in Marseille that had a decent bit of stock but dont seem to have stocked Umit for 2017, Colette had some SS17 stuff but seeing as they're closing in December I doubt they will pick up anything new. His own online store seems to be the only place to buy Umit Benan now.
