Tavi Loves the '90s

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.

In story about Tavi, T magazine asks: "How Sassy Is Tavi Gevinson?" Well, turns out pretty sassy. The story points out that Tavi was busy just being born when Jane Pratt's Sassy mag folded, but that doesn't mean she didn't love the 90s, too. Though she cites Twin Peaks as a big inspiration, she says that for her new site, Rookie, "We're trying to avoid getting too '90s nostalgic. A lot of people who grew up with all that stuff hate reading, like, what a 15-year-old has to say about it." [NYT]
