“I’ve long wanted to design a series of socks inspired by the swirling beauty of Art Nouveau paintings, posters, and decorative motifs.

“Once I saw the new ShibuiKnits Sock color Kiwi, I immediately thought of all the absinthe advertisements I had seen in Art History classes and while traveling across Europe.

“These socks are tribute to the Green Fairy and all my favorite period artists.”
