The Case for Paisley

This summer is all about patterns, lightweight jackets, and colours.  

One pattern you'll often find at your local department store is paisley.  The paisley design originates from Persian and Indian cultures, and typically resembles a "twisted teardrop" or kidney.  
  
Its distinctive shape takes form in multiple colours, and designers from Ermenegildo Zegna to Etro have recently used paisley in their collections.  If you're feeling bold, try one of their paisley shirts, swim trunks, ties, and pocket squares.  It'll be a sure-fire way to make a statement.
