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 Vox.com, 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.

There was nothing subtle about the military theme at Prabal Gurung's fall 2013 runway presentation. Leather belts and harnesses by Zana Bayne, gold hardware polished to a shine, stately sashes, parachute silk, and even cargo pockets all made an appearance in the focused collection. A palette of army green, navy blue, and crimson plus a range of over-the-knee gladiator boots by Casadei nailed the concept home.

It's a vision that couldn't be further from his cheerful, floral capsule collection for Target, which launches tomorrow. As he told us back in November, that collection was inspired by love and all things romance. Put the two themes together, and you essentially have the plot of Anna Karenina. Russian novels for all in 2013!
