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.
If you need a break from all the gift-hunting in Union Square, we suggest you duck into the Serge Sorokko gallery, where American couturier Ralph Rucci is exhibiting 30 pieces of artwork. Unless of course you're looking for a very nice gift.
The acrylic and mixed-media on canvas works show "influences ranging from Abstract Expressionism, Japanese culture, to the mysterious scrawls of Cy Twombly," says Architectural Digest. Rucci created the pieces over the past two years; some are collaged with scraps of silken fabrics. Perhaps cuttings from his couture dresses left on the design room floor? The exhibition runs through January 18 at 55 Geary Street.
