Serses is a clothing brand that stands for quietude and introspection. For us, a life well-lived involves paring things back to their most simple, organic, and essential, while refocusing on what’s important: the lived human experience. We advocate for the role of personal writing in achieving this.
We offer a range of merchandise around this lifestyle, adorned with our signature monogram, to nurture, and to inspire.
The name Serses is derived from Circe, the herbalist of Greek mythology, although we pronounce it as a combination of search and seas (SIR-sees). We’re influenced by transcendentalism in our appreciation of the natural world as a place for quiet contemplation.
In ancient writing, squares had a rich symbolism representing the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water. We use the square in our logo to symbolize our grounding in the natural world.
