Black Saturn is an artistic collaboration of Sandrine Leÿs and Aaron Romine, providing a platform for their joint exploration of knitting, design, art and photography.
Sandrine, ex-fashion journalist, descends from a family of weavers and wool spinners in Roubaix, France. Passionate about the use of traditional crafts in fashion and design, she enrolled in a mechanical knitting course in London in 2018. She was immediately hooked, and became addicted to her 80s Japanese handloom. Always ready for new challenges, she translates into knits the duo's creative deliriums.
Aaron, American artist oscillating between hyperrealism and abstraction, is also a photographer, author, designer, architect, polyglot, think-tank, cook, and much more. As Black Saturn's co-conspirator, he infuzes his visionnary DNA into the brand's product design and narrative. www.aaronromine.com
