This all over print, limited-edition puffer coat features imagery directly pulled from Kehinde Wiley’s painting, Kern Alexander Study. Luxuriously crafted with warmth, comfort and durability in mind, the exterior shell is sublimated poly, insulated with recycled polyester from Primaloft Black Label. Cut and sewn in LA.
Reimagined and redesigned specifically for this exclusive puffer coat, Wiley’s Kern Alexander Study (2011) creates a dynamic and playful exchange between artist, model and wearer. Through a contemporary conversation about adornment and diversity, the design wraps around the entire garment and features unique and stylized multi-cultural textile patterns which beautifully support the vibrant portrait, that decorates the back of the coat.
Wiley will donate all net proceeds from the Kehinde Wiley Shop to directly support Black Rock, his artist in residence program in Dakar, Senegal.

Established in 2019, Black Rock Senegal is a multidisciplinary artist-in-residence program founded by Kehinde Wiley in Dakar, Senegal. The program brings together international artists to live and work at Wiley’s coastal compound for 1-3 month residencies. Designed by Senegalese architect Abib Djenne, the complex includes a residence and studio space for Wiley along with 3 single-occupancy residency apartments with adjacent studio spaces. Our mission is to support new artistic creation through collaborative exchange and to incite change in the global discourse about Africa.
