Fashion house pulls its new striped outfit after criticism it looks like Nazi camp uniforms

24 Nov, 2019 10:50 / Updated 1 day ago

Luxury fashion brand Loewe has apologized and pulled a two-piece outfit from its range after complaints it looked like the clothing that Nazi concentration camp internees were forced to wear.

The black and white striped shirt and trousers set was released by the Spanish fashion house as part of a special capsule collection inspired by 19th century English ceramicist William De Morgan. The shirt alone was retailing for $950.

Spanish fashion brand Loewe is under fire for a recent capsule collection with one outfit that bears a striking resemblance to a concentration camp uniform.




However, the outfit soon drew controversy, with people pointing out its uncomfortable similarity to the iconic striped uniforms worn by inmates of the Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War.

The Loewe outfit drew scathing comments on Twitter, with many wondering “what on Earth they were thinking,” and pointing out that “for almost $1,000, you can look like a prisoner of the Nazis.”

1. The shirt needs more pieces of flair

Like yellow stars, or pink ones.
