VENIM is a luxury streetwear brand founded in 2018 by Leslie Fong and Kaycee Houchin, who bonded over their passion for exceptional craftsmanship, ethical manufacturing, and bold, unique designs during their time in design school. With West Coast roots and a spirit that embraces art, street culture, music, and science fiction, VENIM reimagines the classic denim jacket, transforming it into a symbol of self-expression and democracy.
At the heart of their philosophy is the belief in “fewer, better things,” championing quality, personality, and sustainability. They strive to preserve the denim jacket’s legacy as a universal symbol, while elevating its design with couture construction details, luxurious materials, and unparalleled customization options.
VENIM’s meticulous approach to design ensures every jacket is a work of art, hand-finished in-studio by a dedicated technician. Specialized customizations, such as metallic foil finishes, result in one-of-a-kind pieces, with no two technicians ever working on the same jacket to maintain consistency.
In their commitment to sustainability, VENIM jackets are crafted from the excess yardage of other designer denim brands, known as “liability fabric.” Sourced from premier denim mills worldwide, this practice not only upcycles materials but also mitigates the environmental impact associated with denim production. VENIM stands firm in its promise to prioritize responsible production methods, embracing sustainability without compromise.
