Racked ranks ten of the Times fashion critic's harshest critiques from the past few years — the kind of honesty the fashion industry has had great difficulty coming to terms with. Such as this review of Tommy Hilfiger's spring 2011 show: "For Mr. Hilfiger, the runway may be paved in imitation fieldstone, as it was on Sunday night in the Lincoln Center show space, but it's still a big Sisyphean ball of khaki. Materially, the output will never exceed the creative input, and so he, Mr. Hilfiger of New York, Nantucket and Mustique, is doomed to repeat himself. Or, more accurately, the Hilfiger design team is." [Racked NY]
