NOTON × Kostas Murkudis Shirt

NOTON is proud to launch the first limited edition clothing collaboration with German fashion designer Kostas Murkudis.







Both teams have been working on the garment for over a year and now one hundred editions have been handmade in Italy and are ready for artists. The black cotton-satin, short sleeved shirt is cool and breathable, making it appealing to performers working in the creative industries. An elegant neckline comfortably folds over the chest. The cut was inspired by Japanese folding techniques and has been combined with half raglan sleeves, intricate stitching and discrete, screen-printed logo resulting in a stylish, minimal look.

Kostas Murkudis is a senior designer born in Germany, from Greek parents. He began his career as first assistant of Helmut Lang and subsequently founded his own label showing men’s and women’s collections in Paris from 1996 to 2001. He was then appointed as creative director of New York Industrie, Closed, Ter et Bantine, and Hache more recently. He has also consulted high- end brands such as Balenciaga and Pringle of Scotland, while collaborating with Johnston Cashmere, Mykita and Isaac Reina. In 2015 in occasion of his twentieth year of activity his works have been shown as solo exhibition at MMK Museum of Modern Art in Frankfurt. Since 2016 he has been focusing on his own clothing label, developing garments with special attention to their functionality and innovation in textiles.
