Intermixing their ostensibly disparate passions for the Greek shipping industry, and contemporary art and fashion, the elusive members of Serapis founded the collective in 2014. Taking cues from an abundance of archival material of the culturally-rich industry, Serapis solidified their signature industrial aesthetic with a luxe twist. Inspired by traditional maritime uniforms, Serapis reimagines functional attire as refined garments constructed from superior materials. Alongside the sartorial influences of workers’ uniforms, Serapis’ design process is underpinned by their personal narratives. Honoring the rich culture and strong work ethic of ship workers, Serapis renders images from a shipping crew’s journey into poignant prints on accessories and garments constructed from locally-sourced cotton and opulent premium Soufli silk. Extending the distinctive nature of the brand, every garment belongs to a unique series of pieces, each with an individual production number written on its tag.
