Like a breeze blowing colourful leaves marking the changing of seasons, the chevron shapes shift as if blown in the wind in colours shading from warm to cool. The direction of the chevrons come together to create a modern stylized version of the points of the classic nordic eight point star giving a touch of nordic cool to any outfit.
