One can’t help but think Paul Surridge is on a bit of a mission – a mission to reinvent the Italian power brand that is Roberto Cavalli perhaps? A mission of longevity? Or perhaps to feel more current; more relevant? Whatever the objective, this season saw a line full of clean silhouettes and grown up styling.
‘Fluid and free’ were the Italian brand’s objectives for spring/summer 2018. A feminine line with more than a few sporty touches and a nod to 1970s styling was presented in Milan this week. These seem to be recurring themes this season – sports luxe with a retro twist and an ethos centred around freedom are style notes designers keep coming back to. Technique was clever here with leatherwork, artful proportion play and all manner of pleats and gathers cascading from hem and necklines.
Happy, uplifting and fun was the order of the day for Bottega Veneta this season. Tomas Maier concentrated on a youthful, free spirited feel, commenting in relation to the ‘dark times’ felt globally. And escapism it was – a little sixties inspired, with pastel tones, swathes of sequins and rivets glistening down the runway on some of fashion’s finest from Kendall to Gigi and Hailey.
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".
