Besler's Florilegium, Shoe Salesman Hoodie
This sublimated all over print, unisex hoodie features imagery pulled directly from Kehinde Wiley’s painting, Besler’s Florilegium, Shoe Salesman. Luxuriously crafted with comfort, warmth and durability in mind, this sweatshirt has a plush cotton interior, satin-lined hood and a shell of soft, ring-spun poly.
Reimagined and redesigned specifically for this limited-edition hoodie, Wiley selected his painting Besler’s Florilegium, Shoe Salesmen (2012) for its dramatic design filled with uniquely stylized lush greenery and scarlet hibiscus against a background of vibrant, celestial blue. The design wraps around the garment’s arms, pockets and back, surrounding a new narrative version of this visionary portrait of the everyday hero.
