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.

This afternoon, BlackBook brings us yet another Top Ten shopping list, this time focusing on LA stores that carry Japanese designers. Although we disagree with their geography on a few of the listings, their general consensus seems to be that West Hollywood is the epicenter of Tokyo style in LA, thanks to shops like Opening Ceremony, H. Lorenzo, A Bathing Ape, B by Aperire, Japan LA and Popkiller. The Way We Wore and DecadesTwo also got mentions for stocking vintage Comme des Garcons and the like, while Confederacy and M'Ouments are the lone representatives for Los Feliz and Downtown LA, respectively. As always, if you think they missed anything out, take it to the comments. [BlackBook]
