Kim Jones is pretty much the coolest—like, the coolest. He studied at Central Saint Martins—cool. His graduate collection was instantly snapped up by John Galliano—cool. He has an insane vintage collection including wares from Leigh Bowery, Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren’s Seditionaries, and Christopher Nemeth—so cool. And since being appointed as Louis Vuitton’s men’s artistic director in 2011, he’s made the French house’s menswear mind-blowingly cool. Remember that Supreme collaboration?
I feel like a broken record—I absolutely said this last year—but the world’s in shambles and the fashion industry is in…let’s call it “flux.” Seeing as the latter is part of the former, it’s not terribly surprising, but 2017—like 2016—was rough for both the human race and our ever-changing multi-billion-dollar business. Trump is President, North Korea is super on edge, sexual assault is the norm (surprise, guys! ), I could go on, but I’m getting depressed.
Dita von Teese—burlesque star extraordinaire—casually sauntered in to Zac Posen’s Midtown studio during our Pre-Fall appointment. She instantly gravitated toward a tulle gown, which Posen told me was made using six different shades of raspberry, wine, and the like. Its full skirt was explosive, and its sweetheart neckline extended into sheer, off-the-shoulder sleeves. It was a stunner, to be sure, and perhaps because of the transparency, it seemed like some kind of chic apparition.
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".
