Bunyamin Aydin is the founder and creative director of Les Benjamins, a streetwear fashion label established in 2011 and based in Istanbul. The Collective name “Les Benjamins” celebrates diversity, referencing the fact that every language, religion, and nation has their derivative of the name Benjamin.

Aydin maintains a hybrid design philosophy for Les Benjamins, creating sophisticated urban separates that explore both Eastern and Western aesthetics in unexpected combinations of digital print and artisanal textures. Likewise, a keen interest in hip-hop culture has led Aydin towards artistic collaborations with music artists including Travis Scott, Skepta, Wiley or Section Boyz – promoting his strong belief in the progressive, cross-disciplinary spirit of fashion today.

Les Benjamins collection is now sold in premium multi-label boutiques and department stores worldwide, including Beymen, Harvey Nichols & Brandroom in Turkey, Layers London, Saks Fifth Avenue New York & Los Angeles, La Rinascente Milano, Le Printemps Paris,Tsum Moscow or Shinsegae Seoul. Travis Scott, Skepta, Asap Nast, Jaiden Smith, Cara Delevigne, Woodkid, Rita Ora, Barbara Palvin or Jourdan Dunn can be counted amongst Les Benjamins’ more fans.

LES BENJAMINS  X  ALPHA INDUSTRIES

 “Les Benjamins and Alpha Industries Europe know each other since a couple of years now. From the beginning on it was such a strong friendship so it was obvious that we work together on a project, in this case a MA-1 Bomber jacket. For Fall / Winter 2016 we created this piece of Art together with Bunyamin Aydin. Logo Front & Back Embroidery – simple yet stunning.”
