Designer Daily Menswear: Serum Versus Venom a.k.a. SVSV

Edited by

There’s a rebel with a cause out in Williamsburg. The one I’m referring to is David Gensler, designer of Serum Versus Venom. With 100% of production happening in his own facility in-house, he has the resources and the drive to buck the fashion system. SVSV is created and marketed at its own pace (read, efficient), piece by piece, and the team believes “the existing industry calendar is only helping to perpetuate a archaic system which has no place in the modern, digital age.” They have no desire to enter the mass market, for that which is new will not stay that way very long. A responsible system of production involves no waste and no surplus, which is why they use interesting vintage textiles that stand the test of time. See the super innovative collection here.

The Heavy Pets get Fashionably Rocked

Edited by

FashionIndie’s styling adventure with The Heavy Pets, an explosive rock-funk-jam band, began Wednesday. They’ve got to look fly for their concert TONIGHT (3/18) at the Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg. Thus, lead singer and guitarist Jeff Lloyd came along on this sartorial journey as the band ambassador, and tried on clothes with equal parts wariness and enthusiasm. The goal was to capture the sound of The Heavy Pets through this evolving look. We ran the gamut on the levels of fashion starting on high in the Maguire Steele PR showroom, rode the fast wave biggies like Zara, and rummaged through thrift treasures at Beacon’s Closet. The Pets scored some serious swag, and also hopefully learned a thing or two about the art of shopping and dressing. Check our before post to see what we’re working with, and see their new clothes after the jump.

How to Tie a Turban in a Minute

Edited by

The abundance of both traditional and stylized turbans in existence have fallen into fashion as of late, as you may be aware. I’ve been wrapping my cashmere scarf ’round my head all fall and winter long like this. Based originally out of necessity to shelter my ears from the cold, and the terrible noise I was subjected to at Death By Audio in Williamsburg on Halloween the night of my turban epiphany, I grew to adore its versatility and insta-chic effect. Now with Spring so close, I’m adapting my personal turban-tying method to lighter materials: silk, chiffon and the traditional cotton. Watch my instructional video for a way to turn just about any scarf into a fabulous turban. Then check the authentic Indian, African and other international lessons on how to master the real shebang.

The Top 10 Vintage Haunts In NYC That Won’t Rob You Blind

Edited by

I have to sympathize with New Yorkers who don’t know how to thrift. If you’re paying $100 for a no-name sundress or $80 for Doc Martens riddled with holes, you’re doing a poor job. As a child born and bred in the Midwest, I learned that 80s beaded silk evening gowns should cost $15 and vintage Fendi bags should only set you back $30. So in a city of extremely overpriced vintage stores, what’s a girl (or guy) to do? Take it from the master and check out my top 10 vintage spots in New York City where you can get the best merchandise for the lowest prices.
