Although inspired by history, youthful fashion brand Les Benjamins could hardly be more modern, as this on-trend monochrome sweatshirt proves. Inspired by the ideas of Les Jeunes Turcs, a progressive group of youths who were active during the Ottoman Empire, the creative team at Les Benjamins injects a rebellious spirit into the art of fashion design. Fusing elements of streetwear and popular culture, the label produces beautifully made wardrobe staples with an edge. As with this intriguing printed sweater, highlights of the collection subvert iconic images. Putting Marilyn Monroe into a gladiator-style helmet might seem like a weird idea, but somehow it works.
