This season LES BENJAMINS’ pays homage to the guest workers that rebuilt Germany after the war – one of whom being the grandfather of the brand’s creative director, Bunyamin Aydin.

He was a welder and was one of the first guest workers from Turkey. Him taking the courage to leave his small village in east Anatolia, where they had almost no literacy rate, still serves as a major inspiration to me.”

The campaign images were captured by the lens of Marius Knieling and styled by Neslihan Degerli + Enlil Isik.
