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.

For those who freak out over subtle fabrication, start getting yourself worked up. Derek Lam's Fall 2013 collection adopted a simple palette of ivory, camel, navy, and the occasional burgundy, but each color looked downright rich in the satins, suedes, and wool jersey. The sharp lines of the collarless caped-like jackets balances the trousers that slouch just so as well as the patchwork made from pieced-together quadrilaterals (Heck yeah, geometry class. We were listening.) He added some lace and fur numbers to mix, but for the most part, Lam has streamlined Fall into clean-nosed, minimalist style. Check out the short but sweet collection (just 27 looks!) after the jump.
