Offsite: Jen Kao Makes the Cut

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.

If you thought it was over, you were wrong. Jen Kao slipped in under the official end-of-Fashion-Week radar in Milk Studios, providing a refreshing presentation of her Fall collection. Over Eighties rock music we overheard people adoring the inventive triangular sequins that covered a lot of clothes, including a gorgeous tunic dress. While lavender, navy, and gray were the only colors we saw, the perforated and paneled fabrics added interest, and delicate yet industrial jewelry spiced things up. With more than enough champagne to go around, it seems that guests were preparing for the night’s festivities, and as far as we’re concerned, this was a great way to top off one hell of a week.—Jake Goicoechea
