Just days ago, Illegal Civilization dropped a calmly cool look book that featured their new collection. Within it was something magical: The Internet's Steve Lacy seated atop a '70s vehicle, sporting what appears to be corduroy flare pants. In past years, the bell bottom has been an underutilized and under-appreciated silhouette — especially in menswear. Let's change that ASAP. Here are three easy ways to breathe new life into this classic trend.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but at times nothing can beat a straightforward, written message. Just a few weeks ago, Frank Ocean made an impact by way of his "WHY BE RACIST, SEXIST, HOMOPHOBIC OR TRANSPHOBIC WHEN U COULD JUST BE QUIET?" t-shirt at Panorama Music Festival. Slogan t-shirts have been around forever, but these days they're being used for a variety of empowering purposes. Take this tee from ASHISH, pictured above in all its shimmery, evocative glory.
How did Third Crown begin? KOFI ESSEL: We were doing design for some time, but we wanted to do our own thing. Originally, we wanted to do it in clothing, but when Kristin moved to New York she was mostly getting jobs in jewelry. She learned the ropes and became interested in going in that direction. I wanted a rosary, so she handmade me a rosary — it was awesome.
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".
