Bayswater, in a flat that used to be home to the Royal Society of Literature. I love the legacy of the Omega design workshops that were once based there and also the horses that people ride through Hyde Park — a bit of country life on our doorstep. The Typing Room (above) at Bethnal Green Town Hall for the locally foraged elderflower and raw almond dessert. Chef Lee Westcott was in Hong Kong when I lived there. First thing you do when you arrive back in London?
Now that you’ve mastered colour blocking, autumn is offering up a more daring array of combinations. Burgundy and pink made fast friends at Valentino and Stella McCartney, while lilac and khaki bonded at Emilio Pucci. Whether you choose to champion this look with the simple addition of hyper-hued tights (see Givenchy and Balenciaga for stocking cues) or mix and match contrasting tops and bottoms (Sies Marjan), limit your palette to two to three tones or it will be overkill.
Most fashion designers finish a show season and make a quick exit for the sandy shores of Tulum or Tahiti. Not Grace Wales Bonner. A couple of days after her last London Fashion Week Men’s show Britain’s most exciting menswear designer flew off to Sierra Leone, a country better known for civil war and blood diamonds than for its beautiful beaches, to shoot a portfolio with British singer Sampha.
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".
