Tory Burch scares me a bit

What does that logo remind you of?
I first noticed the logo on a pair of shoes late last winter, in early March I think.  Then I started seeing it on bags.  As the weather turned nice women all over the place were wearing flip flops adorned with it.  And just last week I was talking to a girl who had it displayed on her cell phone case.  Amazingly she paid $50 for the plastic iphone cover, just because of it.

Tory Burch is so hot right now.  Like Hansel hot.  And that is peculiar to me.  Not for the obvious reason that it seems ridiculous for anyone to pay large sums of money for a logo (and then hang it from your elbow?), but for the logo itself.

I can't be the only person out there who thinks it's eerily similar to a swastika, right?

  1. I see the exact same thing. I have been seeing it more and more lately as well. Online sites, social media and even out and about in my small town. I tried to reserve judgement and thought that maybe my brain was inaccurately interpreting the Tori Burch logo as a swastika-like image, so I asked a few friends and family members (independently of one another) what they thought of the logo. While pretending to be contemplating purchasing a pair of shoes that displayed the large TB logo right in the centre of the upper front toe section of each shoe. Everyone I asked reacted with horror and disgust that I would even think about making the purchase with such an offensive symbol emblazoned on the front, for all to see. TB may make some very popular fashion pieces but I will never be a consumer of the brand, because you cannot tell me that the company is unaware of the resemblance their logo and a swastika share.
