Urban Outfitters has already sold out of our cool sweatshirt that turns the Kent State massacre into a fashion statement. But don’t worry — our fall line has plenty more pieces that combine style with history’s greatest tragedies.

Urban Outfitters drew criticism for selling a Kent State sweatshirt that looked like it was spattered with blood, apparently turning the Kent State massacre into a fashion statement. That’s not the only horribly offensive product in the Urban Outfitters fall line. We got a hold of their next catalog and it turns out that Urban Outfitters expects atrocity to be the hot look for autumn. Check out these other items from their catalog that combine fashion with history’s greatest tragedies.

Trayvon Martin Hoodie

Only at Urban Outfitters: If the Kent State sweatshirt whetted your appetite for clothes that will keep you warm and remind passersby of murdered teenagers, check out our Trayvon Martin hoodie. A slate-grey hoodie, lightly distressed with a shotgun, each one-of-a-kind piece features a unique gunpowder signature. Just don’t wear it at night in Florida — a second bullet hole would ruin the silhouette.


Happy Trail of Tears Vajazzling Kit

Give your lover a sexy surprise by decorating your lady parts with a sparkly, kissable, historically accurate map of the Trail of Tears that claimed the lives of thousands of Native Americans. (Your cooch represents Oklahoma.) Wear it under a pair of our Navajo printed panties, a real product that we sold.


JFK Assassination Hat

This season, fedoras are out, and historically accurate dioramas of the JFK assassination that are also hats are in. Wear it to family reunions and ask older relatives, “Do you remember where you were when my hat?”


Twin Towers Hologram Dress

Soft + stretchy ribbed knit bodycon dress from UO’s boho-chic Ecote label with a sheer crochet inset along the hook + eye front. Trimmed with short cap sleeves, a rounded neckline, and a hologram of the Twin Towers falling on 9/11.


Child’s Concentration Camp Uniform

Whoops, Zara already did this one. Urban Outfitters deeply, deeply apologizes for ripping off our friends at Zara’s very real shirt. How tasteless of us.
