After graduating from Central Saint Martins where he won the Grand Prix LVMH Scholarship in 2019, the French/Israeli designer Benjamin Benmoyal, 32 years old, gained some experience at Alexander McQueen and Hermes before founding his eponymous label in 2020. A year later, the brand integrated the official Paris Fashion Week calendar and the FHCM’s showroom (Sphère). It is now sold at retailers worldwide. In 2022, the young label was finalist of the ANDAM fashion award prize.

Combining upcycling and innovation, Benjamin defines a singular territory, marked by his personal history. As a former commando paratrooper, he wanted to transcribe through his work the desire to recover the naivety lost during his military service. Therefore, he has started his label by creating unique fabrics, woven out of his childhood Disney movies VHS tapes as a symbol of his stolen innocence. Since then, the brand has evolved and Benjamin kept exploring and developing different weaving techniques to create new fabrics entirely woven out of upcycled yarns and materials.

The Fall/Winter 2023 collection is focused on crossing boundaries between womenswear and menswear as well as introducing craft to streetwear-inspired garments. By making hoodies, sweatpants and sweatshirts out of unique handwoven fabrics, this collection aims to democratize craftsmanship and giving a luxury and creative alternative to jersey clothes.
