ABOUT MUNDERINGSKOMPAGNIET / MDK
The danish designer and founder of Munderingskompagniet/MDK Stine Busk, has since 2006 had great success in creating fashionable must have leather jackets for all ages. The focus has always been on creating the highest quality at affordable prices.
The name Munderingskompagniet is composed of the word "mundering", an old term for a soldier's uniform and the word "kompagni" which also has military references. Since 2009, the name has been abbreviated to MDK to accommodate our foreign customers, as “Munderingskompagniet” can understandably be a bit difficult to pronounce.
A leather jacket from Munderingskompagniet is created to be worn for any occasions. It's the jacket you wear when you go to work, and the jacket you wear when your party dress needs a some edge. It is the jacket that hangs faithfully in your closet season after season - the sustainable alternative that only gets more beautiful with age.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Danish Stine Busk grew up at the countryside, with horses and the Danish nature right outside her front door. It has played an important role in Stine’s life and influenced her approach to working with her brand. Stine loves contrasts; she loves nature and walks in the woods, but loves the city’s life and opportunities just as much. She loves peace and quiet, but also noise and laughter.
Stine started her career working as a stylist at film productions, after which she worked for a long time as a location scout for large customers such as Porsche, Mercedes, BMW and Nivea. A burning desire to create “functional fashion” led to the creation of the leather goods company Munderingskompagniet / MDK.
Stine loves the color black, and the idea that black is a mixture of all colors. Simple on the surface, but with more layers and more depth than the eye sees - one of the reasons why Stine has fallen in love with the classic black leather jacket. Nevertheless, both colors and suede have crept into the collections, and now everything from jackets, pants, skirts, dresses and shirts are offered in a carefully selected assortment of beautiful colors.
"WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET"
Stine works at the principle that a product must be functional and not just nice to look at. This mindset is one of the fundamental values in Munderingskompagniet’s DNA, and the approach from which all designs are created. It requires a sharp aesthetic sense and a special artistic approach to create as timeless pieces as Munderingskompagniet does. Stine creates her unique and timeless designs with great passion, heart and soul - with an eye for the woman on the street, but never compromising on her own personal style. She never compromises from the belief in her brand's DNA - "What you see is what you get" - you do not compromise on quality, nor do you add a detail without an actual function.
