Somehow, swastikas slipped into a floral print used to make purses at Zara and now Zara's recalling them. If apparel retailers weren't so divorced from the people who actually make their shit we would be skeptical someone along the Zara supply chain thought of this as some sort of subversive joke, like back when we lived in Hong Kong and someone made a killing selling red T-shirts with huge swastikas and fake Helmut Lang logos on them. You would see teenagers skateboarding around town wearing them and just think to yourself, "Man, kids are fucking stupid no matter how innately good at math they happen to be." And yeah, yeah, Buddhist symbol, we know. [Telegraph]
