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.

Looking for basics that are just-this-side-of ordinary?

The Acne sample sale at Gilt is a great way to check out the Swedish brand's signature look at a fraction of the retail price. We're huge fans of Acne. And we hear that Jay-Jay Johanson, one of our favorite songsters, is a huge fan too—so much so that he's been spotted working in the Acne Stockholm store when he's not on tour. That's love.
