Urban Renewal Brings Repurposed Vintage to Harvard Square

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.

Worried you've fallen into a summertime Madewell rut? Rediscover your far-out fashion mojo at the grand opening of Urban Renewal inside the Harvard Square Urban Outfitters, happening tomorrow from 4pm to 9pm.

UO's capsule collection features one-of-a-kind designs whipped up in Philadelphia using both vintage and deadstock materials. A quick perusal of the current online offerings reveals a quirky blend of cropped blouses, kimono jackets, and repurposed babydoll dresses—sort of Vanessa Hudgens crossed with Donna Martin.

Tomorrow night's opening also includes a pop-up shop featuring several local designers. Consider your weekend outfit secured early.—Meaghan Agnew
