As part of a long-term collaboration, Victor Antonio and SVSV Founder David Gensler
begin to explore a more tactile approach to their aesthetic story telling.

As we pursue the creation and craft of original garments, we inevitably produce waste materials.
In an effort to reduce this waste, we developed a modular system of patterns based around a single standard crew.

The modular system (15 Variations) allows for almost 100% yield of the selected fabrics, reducing all but the most superficial waste.

The system demands that each garment be cut individually with no two designs ever coming out the same. Individuality and exclusivity, achieved through process, not marketing, is a tenet of a New Luxury.

Serum Venom set out to investigate how to push the limits of a modern workshirt, without compromising its classic appeal. We focused on combining the attention to detail and strength of military specification garments with the day to day functionality requirements of an urban existence. Our conclusion is a system of design we refer to as Street/Spec, which combines extreme tactical functionality with everyday comfort.

Serum Venom adheres to no seasonal fashion calendar and develops no traditional garment collections – believing these systems are out dated and produce waste. Instead, we focus on continually developing and improving our designs. Each week we will be debuting original designs or extreme modifications and improvements to existing designs. Our goal is to develop a truly better product, not just something new.

Originally launched in 2003 as a private, bespoke brand, Serum Versus Venom was always more of an experiment in art and propaganda than a traditional fashion house.
Now, after several years of exploration into it’s own identity, practices and ambition, the brand re-emerges with more commercial aspirations.

“The ethos of SVSV has always been “anti-mass” serving as a platform for myself and my partners to communicate an alternative vision to an industry
driven entirely by sales. We have always focused on putting the concept, quality, materials and construction before the bottom line… now we are returning with a new
balance, hopefully allowing us to engage a much wider reaching audience”

Longtime friends, Osamu Koyama and David Gensler collaborated to produce a series of hand crafted, antique tailoring shear pendants. The project pays tribute to David Gensler’s extensive personal collection of tailoring shears, which number over 800 and span some 450 years of sartorial history.

Focusing on three styles of shears, English, French and American, the collaboration took 6 months to finalize, with each master design being hand carved by Osa. Limited runs will be sold directly by SVSV and will come in a variety of materials including pure gold, silver and brass.
