Mansur Gavriel has been making cult-favorite bags since 2012, and each time the brand has expanded into a new category — from shoes in 2016 to ready-to-wear this past season at New York Fashion Week — fashion insiders have gobbled the new products up. There's no reason to expect anything different with its latest release: a collection of wallets and small leather goods in a range of candy-colored leathers sure to please the brand's longtime fans.
In the years since the Rana Plaza factory collapse in 2013, which killed more than 1,000 Bangladeshi garment workers laboring to make clothing for largely Western brands, consumers have become increasingly aware of the human cost of making cheap clothing. But the environmental cost, which is no less pressing in the age of global climate change, can be harder to internalize. No one wants to buy a shirt that a person died to make, but what about a shirt that a river died to make?
We expect good red carpet dresses during awards season, that hectic time of year when the Oscars, Golden Globes and Grammys all come together with a cascade of designer-laden looks. But other times of year — i.e. the week before Thanksgiving — we don't necessarily have the same expectation of our stars. This week, then, was a pleasant surprise, full as it was of random award ceremonies. Ever heard of the Bambi or Vodafone Awards?
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".
