In 2018, a fashion house is not a home—not unless the designer living there is able to transform it so that it reflects our lives and times rather than some vainglorious past. A respectful reverence for the way things once were is one thing, but no one wants (or wants to wear) a timid tiptoe through a house’s greatest hits. Thankfully the last couple of years have seen houses taken over by designers who aren’t interested in just blithely looking back.
Nicolas Andreas Taralis —he of monochrome and exacted evening and ready-to-wear from yesteryear—is back after a thirty six-month absence, showing not necessarily a reset, nor a comeback, but a fresh start collection in Paris today after building up his business in China due to an “offer he couldn’t refuse.” That procurement included conceiving and building out his own stores; a project that allowed him to flex his precision in not just clothing, but also the space in which it lives.
The transformation of Helmut Lang continues. Shortly after Alix Browne was named as its new Editor-in-Residence, replacing Isabella Burley, designer Mark Thomas presented his first menswear lineup for the storied (and now quite exploratory) label. He joined just over two months ago as creative director of menswear. Prior, in receding order, he worked for Joseph , Givenchy , and Neil Barrett . Thomas’s assignment is permanent, unlike the revolving-door concept of Helmut Lang ’s residency program.
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".
