Go With the Flow in Fashion

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.

What the heck is going on in fashion right now? Nobody knows, really. Proof: the NY Times' Cathy Horyn says so. And she knows everything (trust—we're not even being facetious), so it must be true. Horyn writes: " isn’t very decisive at the moment. 'Anything goes' no longer means wearing what you like; it means pulling up your rudder and going with the current, sailing blind. I keep hearing designers with long experience, and perhaps dwindling resources and customers, say, 'I don’t understand anything anymore.'" PS: This, right, is a rudder. [On the Runway]
