The nice thing about the colder months is the breathtaking crystallized water droplets that fall from the sky, which inspires many winter snowflake designs.

The frozen water droplets are widely known to decorate holiday sweaters and Nordic winter apparel. They also become the ideal silhouettes for Christmas ornaments or baked goods for holiday office parties. The beauty of snowflakes lies in the way their points extend at different angles, how fragile they are and their individuality; no two snowflakes are alike. That’s why you will proudly see them displayed on the leather upper of a pair of sneakers or shimmering on the pink shell of a Sony camera. 

Once you start to see winter snowflake designs taking over the streets, you know that the holiday season has officially started.
