Istanbul-based luxury street wear label Les Benjamins has partnered with Puma to create a collection inspired by Les Benjamins’ founder, Bunyamin Aydin who has a passion for photography and travel.
The collection’s journey of discovery tells the story through the eyes of 13th Witness, a photographer from Brooklyn, New York who unexpectedly discovered his Turkish roots from a DNA test.

Each piece in this collection comes with an aesthetic philosophy that translates deep-rooted cultural influences.
