Well, I never thought I would see someone try to recreate what people wore in the concentration camps in WWII and why they would try to make it trendy is beyond me. This is absolutely disgusting. I am sick to my stomach. As a Jew, this is incredibly offensive. Who the hell would ever think this is cute and fashionable? I used to like Zara, but after this I am never shopping there again. Fuck Zara this is utterly disgusting.
This is an example of a story that could only possibly exist in a world without research.
The outfit was not intended to be anything like a concentration camp uniform. It was intended to be a child’s sheriff-themed pyjamas, and the little yellow star actually says “sheriff”. Zara apologised immediately and then withdrew it from sale.
This is a story of a company making an understandable mistake, and then getting the reaction almost embarrassingly right.
The words you’re looking for are “Well done, Zara”.
