But I am also loving paisley in clothes - Derek Lam's graphic 60's mod paisleys caught my eye on the runway for fall, and then the Marlon Falaise / Lucie de la Falaise family portrait in Vogue stood out in a more authentic, hippie kinda way.
For a while I've been dismissing prints as too specific or of a season, but when looking through all these photos its hard not to see paisley as a classic.
