Let's have fun while we can

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

“We're in a time of uncertainty: Will the luxury-goods market survive? How much longer will haute couture be relevant? So when things look uncertain, or worse than uncertain, for some there comes an attitude in the fashion community that says, ‘Let's all just throw on our hooker heels and have some fun while we still can.’” —Derek Blasberg [Daily Beast]
