A chevron, in decoration is an inverted V-shaped pattern or insignia. It was traditionally used in architecture, pottery or military uniforms. Archaoelogists have found the motif as early as 1800 BCE in Crete, in modern-day Greece. Taking a cue from the classics, Burberry rules the runway with butter toffee accents, distinctive chevron stripes, cashmere jacquard and oversized geometry.
Fun fact -when shown as a smaller size than standard, it is a diminutive called a chevronel.
