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.

One of our favorite collections at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week this season was Nicole Miller's totally-80s-inspired spring show. The brilliant use of clashing patterns, striping, set off with a New Wave-y Industrial-lite use of black is totally up our street—and even though the references are now 30-ish years old (omg, we're so old), they still feel fresh and modern and totally wearable. If you were a fan of Depeche Mode or Information Society in 1991, you will very likely love this collection.

And our runway finale video:
