Inspired by: Chevrons

I don't know if it was started by Target-Missoni frenzy, but it seems zigzags are everywhere these days. A classic pattern—it dates back as far as ancient Crete and is used as a military rank insignia in the United States and Commonwealth nations—the bold, graphic chevron looks modern and fresh when used in expected and unexpected places.
