•Yellow rose of Texas
•Stars and stripes forever
Maybe it’s only us, though this looks a lot like a yellow cloth star Jews were forced to wear by a Nazis during a Second World War.
A observant shopper alerted a Toronto Sun to this window arrangement during Holt Renfrew in a Yorkdale selling mall, indicating out that this yellow star, as iconic black go, is too tighten for comfort.
The star on this Miu Miu wardrobe object is on a same side of a mantle as a Jewish badge was placed; a Nazi-ordered star had a word “Jude” on it.
The Miu Miu conform chronicle reads “John.”
As fluke goes, this is all sincerely creepy.
And a timing is moving — it doesn’t assistance that white supremacists, neo-Nazis and other hatred groups are now carrying a impulse in America.
Maybe Miu Miu done an trusting pattern mistake, though it’s formidable to figure out how. What, we competence ask, is a yellow star on this dress ostensible to be?
