Paris Fashion Week may still be in full swing, but all eyes in the fashion industry were on the Dolby Theater for the 90th Academy Awards and its famed red carpet outside. Even in the wake of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements in Hollywood and beyond, attendees piled on the pomp and pageantry, showcasing the toniest ensembles to millions of viewers. Because however much it is a bash that commemorates the best motion pictures of the year, it is also a chance for those at home to celebrate fashion.
Trend may be a dirty word for many, but it does help the general public narrow down how best to present themselves in the coming season. It is a designer’s job, after all, to reflect the world we live in and create pieces that speak to zeitgeist. For Fall 2018, New York Fashion Week had a handful of collections that did just that. Sportswear and business suits are usually what many expect from New Fashion Week, but it appeared that designers looked past urban life and into the American heartland.
We live in a digital world and Moleskine is looking to be a part of it in its own distinct way. The Italian brand, known for offering leather-bound journals and books, has recently introduced its Pen + Ellipse, a new writing utensil that memorizes and store notes, drawings and other content done by hand onto digital platforms.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
