If you happened to cop a shirt from Givenchy's Spring 2016 collection, you'll want to listen up. The Fashion Law is reporting that three styles from the Italian brand have been recalled due to their extreme flammability. We're sure Riccardo Tisci wanted to make the shirts fire, but this probably wasn't what he was going for.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, “the T-shirts fail to meet the federal flammability standard for wearing apparel and pose a risk of burn injury to consumers,” meaning your new designer gear could easily go up in flames. The three recalled silk shirts, which ranged in price from $685 to $1,350, include a sheer blue and black plaid, a black and white stripe, and a black tee with an image of Jesus on the cross. They were originally dropped in February and were stocked at retailers like Barneys New York, Neiman Marcus, Farfetch and Nordstrom.
The good news is only 60 of shirts have been sold so far, and no injuries have been reported. If your are an owner of a recalled shirt, it's recommended that you stop wearing it immediately and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Givenchy has also been required to directly contact those who bought the recalled shirts. Unfortunately, the UCPSC can't regulate retailers overseas, so the shirts could still be available for purchase online.
