The final day of London Fashion Week was opened this morning by Spanish-born Emilio de la Morena, whose fans include Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Palermo and Kate Moss. There was a clue to the collection’s inspiration even before any models appeared on the catwalk, which was covered in a sugar pink carpet and backdropped with swathes of turquoise silk. Morena had found a tweed woven at the French mill he uses that reminded him of the film Clueless.
It’s now positively de rigueur to head out to the shows in a matching outfit to your mate, a detail not lost on Susie Lau and Tina Leung (above), who paired up in pistachio green Molly Goddard this weekend. And, perhaps due to the fact that Burberry was showing at 7pm, on Sunday the collective fashion press turned out in trench coats. Vetements was among the brands most widely represented in the trenches, alongside - of course - Burbs and no doubt a smattering of M&S.
When you have an archive as iconic as Burberry, why seek inspiration from anywhere else? And so it transpired that for his latest collection, Christopher Bailey looked forward by looking back. “The Burberry check is a big part of who we are and it’s fundamental to the iconography of the brand,” he said backstage. “I wanted to have pride in it.”As a result, the Burberry check staged its biggest comeback since it reached its unfashionable peak around 2002.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
