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.

Today we're bringing you our weekly retail updates from Racked's newest cities: DC, Philly, and San Francisco, courtesy of our Curbed sister sites. Excited? We sure are. And now, as usual, here's your end-of-the-day report on the fashion happenings in Racked cities around the country:

CHICAGO—Here's another addition to fashion bondage bandage: native Chicagoan Cynthia Rowley has partnered with Band-Aid Brand again, and this time they have Beach Sport Kits.

LOS ANGELES—Travel the world via La Cienega Design Quarter's astonishingly awesome window displays, created by emerging and renowned interior designers.

NEW YORK—The Betsey Johnson bankruptcy story is old news by now, but if the wounds still feel fresh, head to our sister site to find out why the designer of all things sparkly has struck such a chord.

SAN FRANCISCO—The largest Steven Alan outpost on the West Coast has officially opened in San Fran to not much fan-fair. Nope, not a single, solitary "happy opening" cupcake.

DCDKNY style director Anthony Conti will be at Bloomingdale's to chat about the latest trends and give out fashion advice. Sadly DKNY PR Girl will not be in attendance.

PHILLY—Open-air shop like a champ at the Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival this Saturday. Brands like Arcadia, Kembrel, Knit Wit, Nicole Miller, and South Moon Under will show their wares, old-school market style.
