These are not the classic printed teardrops of the past. Brands have reinvented the retro print to fit into the modern world. Taking the past for a spin, the new paisley designs plays with the original shape in scale, texture, and color combinations. Brands like Andres Velasco, Björn Borg, Frank Dandy, Happy Socks, and Perry Ellis have all put their own twist on this kidney-shaped design so an entire new generation can enjoy the classical print in a new way.
