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.

The Jean Paul Gaultier retrospective organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts has already been shown in Dallas and San Francisco, and it's next U.S. stop will be at the Brooklyn Museum. The show will debut on October 25th of next year and run all the way through February 23rd. (Before it arrives on the East Coast, it'll also head to Rotterdam and Stockholm, and it's currently being shown in Madrid.)

WWD reports, however, that the Brooklyn leg will include brand new elements, including looks from the brand's recent runway shows. Overall, the exhibit will be composed of 140 pieces, including ready-to-wear and couture outfits and sketches, as well as video clips and costumes worn by Madonna.
