Paisley please

Jil Sander, Stella McCartney, J.W. Anderson- all used paisley this season, and in totally awesome ways I might add. But the most recognizable use of paisley in fashion has to come from the classic handkerchief design. From industry bigwigs to bikers and gangstas, its iconic design is unmistakeable. I, for one have always been a fan, so was stoked when I came across LA-based Rik Villa on Etsy. Working with actual handkerchiefs, the designer then reconstructs them into garments like shorts, t-shirts, bowties, and even kilt pants (yo Marc! did you hear that?). I'm considering the tank or shorts...so essential for my summer steez!
