Feature News: Louis Vuitton Says Its Latest Sweater Was Inspired By Jamaica’s Flag Yet Got The Colors Wrong

Internationally acclaimed French luxury fashion brand Louis Vuitton appears to have completely goofed with its latest menswear sweater after initially claiming it was inspired by the Jamaican national flag when it actually got the colors wrong.

Describing the $1,340 “Jamaican Stripe Sweater” on its website, the fashion brand had initially said the pullover – which is colored in green, yellow and red – channeled “the collection’s Jamaican Parade theme, with a striped design inspired by the Caribbean island’s national flag.” The Jamaican national flag, however, does not feature a red color. The Caribbean nation’s flag colors include green, yellow and black.

Per the Jamaica Information Service: “Black depicts the strength and creativity of the people; Gold, the natural beauty of the sunlight and the wealth of the country; and Green signifies hope and agricultural resources.”

The apparent mistake was highlighted by a Twitter user by the name @pam_boy who shared screenshots of the product and its description as well as the Jamaican national flag, Pop Sugar reported. “I cannot stress enough how important it is to implement diversity as a value and not a symbol within fashion companies,” the user posted.
