The perfect shirt as a symbol of our changing times: when gender neutrality, equality, and individuality have become paramount.
Two partners, one ground-breaking collection: the capsule collection MURKUDIS / Seidensticker intertwines the expertise of traditional brand Seidensticker with the contemporary design philosophy of the creative duo MURKUDIS. Together, they have created a wholly new conception of fashion and style. The goal of this collaboration with brothers Kostas and Andreas Murkudis is nothing less than to tear down rigid rules about dressing and help the wearer move towards an expression of true identity. That’s why MURKUDIS / Seidensticker is more than just a cooperation: it’s also a statement about how the iconic button down shirt can become the symbol of a generation that values fashion freedom, personal expression and individual style.
The three-piece capsule collection MURKUDIS / Seidensticker focuses on the very essence of fashion — a completely redesigned shirt becomes the basic core of a unisex collection that sets the stage for individual looks. In the spotlight stand three oversized models made from poplin and wool — the classy shirt, the military shirt, and the long shirt — in colors black, white, and navy. New interpretations of classic detailing like patch pockets, curved hems, and button closures complete the look.
He is regarded as one of Germany’s most renowned fashion and lifestyle retailers: as owner of three namesake concept stores in Berlin, Andreas Murkudis presents curated designer fashion and sophisticated interior pieces, including home accessories, and has become a driving force in the city’s creative scene. Together with his brother Kostas Andreas Murkudis shares a passion for minimalism, quality, and craftsmanship. Since 2019, the brothers — orginally from Dresden — work in Berlin under the name MURKUDIS, developing fashion collections together with diverse international brands, as with the current Seidensticker project.Find out more about Andreas Murkudis
