It will always be 'scrunchie' to me. I admit it, I rolled my eyes at the designer tube sock phenomenon (yet priced these babies out recently) that Vetements set off, but for some reason when Balenciaga embraced the much-maligned scrunchie for Resort 2018, I gasped. As a closeted scrunchie lover for so long now, this seemed the kind of ugly-trend I could finally get behind. And well, with Jen Atkin selling them, can world domination be far off?
A visit to Toronto’s Archives is like a journey to another land. Owner Jaleh Farhadpour has filled her stark white Yorkville boutique with whimsical objets from under-the-radar creatives who toil in far-flung locales. Hats, handbags and Farhadpour’s carefully curated pieces of fine jewellery are so dreamy that it’s easy to forget she is a designer herself. The Cap d’Ail (from $1,500) collection is made with stones she found on a beach in the South of France, where she has a summer house.
When it comes to investment dressing, a Max Mara coat is invariably at the top of any fashion savant’s shopping list. With that in mind, the label launched the Atelier collection in 2009. This special project, which continues to this day, has a dedicated design team who continue to reimagine these signature looks. Atelier coats are mostly made by hand with double-faced alpaca, cashmere and pure camel hair.
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".
