FASHION DESIGNER Lucie Meier grew up in the Swiss Alps town of Zermatt, where her parents had settled after a nomadic life of working in hotels, her father as a chef, her mother waiting tables. There, in the shadow of the Matterhorn, world-class skiing and hiking were easily accessible. But high fashion? Not so much, she remembers. “I was up there on my alp, very far removed,” says Meier, 35, who would go on to top roles at brands like Louis Vuitton and Balenciaga.
Balenciaga’s spring 2018 menswear show imagined what the label’s “corporate male,” the muse for the fall 2017 collection, would wear on the weekends while hanging out with his children. And to emphasize his inspiration, artistic director Demna Gvasalia even had some of his models walk the runway with their own kids, who wore equally cool Balenciaga styles made just for the mini set.
I am very loyal to my handbags. As long as it checks off all of my requisite boxes (the design is simple and pretty, it goes with everything I wear, it can be worn to the office and on weekends, and it withstands subway rides and playground trips with the kids alike), I'll take it pretty much everywhere and use it until it shows a lot of wear—then, it's on to the next.
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".
