Zara pulling ‘Holocaust’ pyjama top

- August 27th, 2014

There will always be clothing items that make you question ‘who would wear that?’ And then there are clothes that beg the question ‘why even make it?’

Retailer Zara apologized to customers Wednesday after pulling a pyjama top that people said resembled the prison uniforms worn during the Holocaust. The blue and white striped kids’ top has a yellow star printed on the front. The brand said it was inspired by clothes in classic western films, and the word ‘sheriff’ can be seen on the star.

Limited Toronto Jimmy Choo bag sells out

- August 13th, 2014

When it comes to style, something unique and exclusive is always fashionable.

It’s why sneakerheads line up for new kicks, or fashionistas camp outside of stores for designer brand collaborations (H&M anyone?). So it’s no wonder that a limited edition Jimmy Choo bag designed for the brand’s Toronto store opening sold out in three days – even if it costs $1,095.
