The Project : Le coeur des hommes à l’ouvrage (The hearts of the working men)
Roman Jehanno sheds light on the esthetics of the XXIst century men and women in their working environment. This collection is a testimony about the knowledge and human savoir-faire and let us met all the beauty of those working men that strives to accomplish a lifetime duty. The project is composed of several collections focusing on a specific trade, location, or group of individuals linked by their activity.
Weavers, metal workers, barbers, sommeliers, tatoo artists... Each and everyone of them wields a precious talent that needs to be brought to light, and holds a key to understanding a bit more of the cultures of our world.
