In a personal apology on her Instagram, Donatella Versace said she had never “wanted to disrespect China’s National Sovereignty.”

We want to know is it too late for this?

Images of the shirts began circulating online over the weekend. Each of the designs featured lists of various prominent cities next to their respective countries.

All three brands listed Hong Kong as a separate country. Coach and Givenchy also listed Taiwan, a region whose sovereignty is claimed by mainland China, similarly as a separate nation. Versace also listed Macau, a special administrative region of China, as a separate state.
