Good morning, PR pros:

Fashion designer Loewe recently received backlash after its $1,840 outfit was compared to concentration camp uniforms:

Loewe issued an apology on its Instagram Story:

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.

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.
