Loewe issued the apology via the brand’s Instagram account and has since removed the products from its website.
“It was brought to our attention that one of our looks featured in a magazine and part of our Arts and Crafts ceramicist William De Morgan could be misconstrued as referring to one of the most odious moments in the history of mankind,” the statement read. “It was absolutely never our intention and we apologize to anyone who might feel we were insensitive to sacred memories. The products featured have been removed from our commercial offering.”
This isn’t the first time brands have come under fire for selling clothing reminiscent of the Holocaust.
The company had said the shirt was actually inspired by “the sheriff’s stars from the Classic Western films,” but swiftly pulled the item just hours after it went on sale.
