When Religion Speaks Louder than Fashion

After the Jewish Press condemned Zara for the “Offensive” T-Shirt, that became the centre of controversy due to the top bearing yellow six-pointed star that resembled the uniform worn by Jewish prisoners in concentration camps, Zara apologized and removed the pieces form its stores and website to avoid further offence.
The criticism started among parents and press, who were stunned when they saw the T-shirt. Dimi Reider, an Israeli journalist and associate fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations wrote: “A striped pajama with a yellow star for your child. It’s a SHERIFF shirt for your three-year-olds. Obviously. What else could it be?”
Zara wasn’t aware of the design correlation, but late on recognized the similarity, “The item in question has now been removed from all Zara stores and Zara.com,” Zara’s parent company Inditex confirmed. “The garment was inspired by the classic Western films, but we now recognize that the design could be seen as insensitive and apologies sincerely for any offence caused to our customers.”
