Approaching the Park Armoury before the Marc Jacobs show, one could hear the incensed swell of protestors, whose chants echoed and ricocheted down Lexington Avenue. It’s a familiar sound in New York and an expected one yesterday, a day in which one of the deadliest school shootings in the US (and 18th this year) occurred in Parkland, Florida, reigniting calls for gun control amid Republican prayers in the place of action. We should all be outraged: surely an anti-gun march was well underway.
It’s been one year since Raf Simons and his team showed their debut collection for Calvin Klein, and what a year it’s been. When he accepted the job as chief creative officer at the behemothic American brand, he had no idea that America itself would become an unrecognisable landscape of political horrors in less than 12 months – how could he have?
For his third show in New York, Raf Simons debuted a collection dubbed “Youth In Motion.” It’s baffling to consider the sober reality that 23 years on, Simons is menswear’s eminent elder statesman. Having mined subcultures for their grim messaging, decayed urban silhouettes, and anti-authoritarian, after-dark declinations into drug-fueled epiphanies, he predicted early on the type of sinister escapism that subsequent generations of disaffected young people would gravitate toward.
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".
