Zara Apologizes for Collection with similarity to Nazi Prison Camp Clothes

Zara has released quite a controversial collection for children. The famous retailer actually decided to redraw from sale this collection, as it comes with too many similarities to Nazi prison camp clothes.  

The decision to redraw this collection from sale came after a huge wave of criticism was launched on Zara, saying that the designs released by the retailer in sale resemble the uniforms that were worn by inmates in Nazi concentration camps during the Holocaust. Naturally, this is quite a serious accusation and Zara did not wait for too long to have the models out of sale. 

The new design was aimed to be worn by children aged 3 months to 3 years. They featured horizontal stripes with a six-pronged yellow star over the left breast. This yellow badge, along with the combination of stripes looks just too much like prisoner uniforms, even though, naturally this was not the intention that Zara had. 

Zara did not only chose to redraw the items from its stores and website, but the retailer also apologized for the incidents. “The item in question has now been removed from sale. The garment was inspired by the classic Western films, but we now recognize that the design could be seen as insensitive and apologize sincerely for any offence caused to our customers,” a statement posted on Twitter revealed. 

The top for kids was priced $14.50 and was produced in Turkey. At the time when it was redrawn by Zara, the item was available for purchase at the online store of the retailer, in several countries. Reports reveal that the item was available in sale in Israel, as well. 

This is not the first time when an item released by Zara manages to cause controversy. Apparently, the famous company found itself in a similar situation just a few weeks ago, when the brand had to take its new White is the New Black T-shirt from sale, due to racial offensive. Maybe Zara has made some mistakes, but the Spanish retailer is quite willing to do anything it can to stop the controversy.
