Contrapposto Socks pattern - by Sorren Kerr
Many of the most iconic depictions of the human form feature a daring contrapposto, the confident and natural 'counterpose' setting the shoulders and hips at different angles. Defiant, strong, sexy--the contrapposto has always carried the weight in its own way and looked good doing it.
