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.

Summer's almost over, so we're taking our seasonal half-day Fridays while we can. We had fun with you this week, thanks for tuning in. In case you missed anything, this week was brought to you by the letters O, M, G, and some of our favorite stories: We found one of the guys from Take Ivy and asked him a bunch of questions, Kimora Lee Simmons was sacked from Baby Phat for supposedly being too expensive to Photoshop, we unmasked the mysterious fashion Twitterer @fashionweeknyc who's been posing as an industry insider but isn't, hot tennis players Maria Sharapova and Roger Federer revealed their US Open outfits, videos of Tavi styling Danielle Staub's daughter surfaced online, a fashion blogger from San Diego got herself some free Saks signage, scientists proved that people who carry fake designer goods are more likely to lie and cheat, and Jimmy Choo's totally hid collaboration with Ugg will grace the feet of Nicky Hilton.
