Designer: Michael Kors Date: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 Location: Vivian Beaumont Theater at Lincoln Center Jewish? His mom is Jewish, his dad is Swedish. It’s been nearly 3 years since New York Fashion Week was evicted from Lincoln Center and forced into Skylight-branded locations like Clarkson Square an Moynihan Station (recently, the industry event shifted spaces again, to this week’s current base of operations at Spring Studios).
Designer: Coach 1941Date: Tuesday, February 14, 2018Location:Basketball City on the East River. Jewish: Founder Miles Cahn is a Jew, but the current designer, Stuart Vevers, is not Jewish. There are three Jewish brands that are quintessentially American: Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Coach. These three brands live and breathe American “style” — an archetype that glorifies Americana: Flags, cowboys and casual sportswear.
Designer: Marc Jacobs Date: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 Location: Park Avenue Armory Jewish? Most definitely, yes (didn’t the biblical-sounding last name give it away?). For a long time, Marc Jacobs was the most overrated designer in American fashion. True, fashion’s elite continue to dutifully trudged out to his twice yearly shows, which are known to be notoriously exclusive and difficult to nab an invite to.
@BinkleyOnStyle And you have done an amazing job of it — as a young fashion journo myself, you and your contemporaries’ work have been hugely influential on my own. Which is why I was surprised by your assertion that you don’t see yourself as a fashion critic.
@BinkleyOnStyle I agree with this. But shouldn’t that warrant a follow-up critique then? Not to classify it as good or bad, necessarily, but a critique on its salability, on its impact on visual culture, on whether it’s just “stuff” in an increasingly crowded market.
@BinkleyOnStyle True — which is why runway reviews can seem superficial in that sense. But the experience of clothing isn’t just based on the self; it is also about the exterior, how it is read by others in the context of society
@BinkleyOnStyle For fashion, the purpose of criticism is contextualize, to explain the cultural zeitgeist through the lens of fashion. When a designer presents a bad or boring collection, yet the individual pieces are salable, a good critic would note that.
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".
