REUTERS/Andrea Comas MADRID (Reuters) – Global fashion chain Zara, owned by Spain’s Inditex, pulled from sale on Wednesday a striped children’s top decorated with a large six-pointed star after it was likened to uniforms worn by Jewish concentration camp inmates in Nazi Germany. The shirt, bearing horizontal http://www.chicemma.com blue and white stripes, was on sale online in three European countries but not in Israel, an Inditex spokeswoman said. The resemblance was unintentional and the design had been inspired by sheriff’s stars from classic Western films, she said. Within hours of the t-shirt being put up for sale, some newspapers had picked up on its resemblance to concentration camp uniforms and messages were posted on Twitter criticizing the design.

Fashion Retailer Zara Pulls Kids Shirt Resembling Concentration Camp Uniform : The Two-Way : NPR

Zara.com hide caption itoggle caption Zara.com The clothing retail giant Zara is apologizing and has pulled a kids’ shirt from its stores after hearing complaints that it resembled the uniform worn by prisoners in Nazi concentration camps. In a tweet, Zara said the shirt was “inspired by the sheriff’s stars from the Classic Western films.” Reporting from Spain’s Canary Islands correspondent Lauren Frayer tells our Newscast unit that this isn’t the first time the Spanish retailer has gotten into trouble. She filed this report: “The shirt in question is navy and white striped, with a big gold star on the chest. Zara sold it online in several countries, including Israel. “The company called it a ‘sheriff shirt’ for kids. But many shoppers thought it looked conspicuously like a World War II concentration camp outfit, and complained on Twitter and Facebook.
