Earlier this year, Kwaidan Editions appeared with not so much as a tremble or a whisper of anticipation at its arrival. (That this writer knew about it at all was down to the good people of MatchesFashion.com ) The label, designed by partners in work and life, Lea Dickely (she’s French) and Hung La (he’s American), was curious and intriguing.
“Everyone has an idea of the north,” says Lou Stoppard. “It’s like New York, or Paris, or Rio; you have a visual picture of it. This show is trying to work out where that picture comes from.” Stoppard is talking about North: Fashioning Identity , an exploration of the representations, notions, visual cues and clichés of northern England which opens November 8th at Somerset House in London.
This is the kind of comment that should give everyone hope: “I wasn’t very good at school,” says Lou Doillon, laughing over the phone from Paris, “so I was always at the back of the class, drawing.” Of course, for Doillon, the daughter of singer and actress Jane Birkin and film director Jacques Doillon, it is her exceptional singing and songwriting that she has become known for. (No idea if she was also doing those in school.)
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".
