For his Calvin Klein debut, noted Belgian designer Raf Simons unpacked and subverted classic American archetypes. Cowboys, sheriffs, housewives, and Wall-Streeters were deconstructed and remade through Simons's calculating lens. His second season, shown last week during New York Fashion Week at the brand’s 39th street HQ, trained the spotlight even tighter on our collective heritage—good and bad—with the return of cowboys and housewives, and the addition of cheerleaders and serial killers.
It feels like 100 years ago today that the fashion world first saw her: Kendall Jenner, quietly—insecurely even—walking her first big-time runway at New York Fashion Week, way back in February of 2014. The rest, as they say, is history—or was it? Kendall might now seem as much a part of the fashion establishment as oversized sunglasses or Karl Lagerfeld's silver pony tail, but the truth is that her acceptance and rise did not happen on impact.
I heard about Sharktooth in Williamsburg in that funny way that sometimes happens: someone mentions a band or an artist to you've never heard of, and then three other people happen to mention the same thing to you in the span of one week. About a month ago, Sharktooth was rolling off everyone’s tongues. And for good reason—it’s an impeccably curated store filled with antique rugs from Caucasia and some of the most special over-dyed textiles you can run your unworthy fingers over.
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".
