Istanbul’s own Les Benjamins continue to dominate the year, closing with a collaboration with masters of the bomber jacket, Alpha Industries

A late addition to its AW16 collection, Les Benjamins’ Creative Director Bunyamin Adyin has worked alongside Alpha Industries Europe to create a simple yet stunning take on its original MA-1 bomber jacket. The MA-1 was the first Alpha Industries US government contracted jacket back in 1963, complete with a reversible Indian Orange lining so that pilots could signal rescue if they crashed.

The two brands have now come together to replicate the original specifications of the jacket, including the reversible lining. Bunyamin has, however, put his twist on the design in the form of a front and back embroidery and branded logos. This again shows how effortlessly he can combine Western and Eastern urban cultures.

The jacket is available now worldwide at www.lesbenjamins.com
