Earlier this month, U.S. based colour authority, Pantone announced that the colour of 2018 is ultraviolet. While this claim is more pointed towards interiors, there are touches of violet and lilac emerging in this season’s early menswear collections and while we don’t advocate purple flocked overcoats or lilac chenille knits, we’ve found five brands that share our thoughts on why this colour should make an appearance in your wardrobe over the next 12 months.
It’s a trend that Ralph Lauren (perhaps more than any other men’s style powerhouse) has championed, first with Polo Stadium, and now with an evolution on the theme: Snow Beach. I realised this with the arrival of Ralph Lauren’s Polo Stadium capsule , which launched last September. That was a range of retro branded sportswear, inspired by the RL sports collections of the 1990s, and it flew off the shelves.
Kings Cross based brand Cubitts is on to something; British design, top-quality Italian acetate, contemporary and clean styling. The Judd is one of their signature frames and something of a cult eyewear hit. They’re big, bold and have more than a hint of Michael Caine about them – ideal with anything from a corduroy chore jacket to a double-breasted flannel suit. They come in six different acetates as either opticals or sunglasses, but it’s the olive colour that gets our vote.
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".
