“The spring 2018 collection draws inspiration from the lyrics of John Denver’s song, ‘Rocky Mountain High,’ with an emphasis on the lyrics ‘serenity of a clear blue mountain lake.’ During these unsettling times in America, we’re asking: ‘What does a modern manifestation of that time look like for 2018 and beyond?'” — Parke Lutter and Ronen Jehezkel, Parke & Ronen

“The colors and vitality of the ocean are amazing. It’s the opposite of Mars. The collection is loosely based on Donovan’s hit song from 1968, and Plato’s description of Atlantis in 368 AD. The ‘Atlantis collection is really a metaphor within a fashion show.” — Nick Graham

“Protocol 18 is the control of intelligence between the agency and the hacker.” — Kenneth Ning

“This season I was inspired by the many styles of John F. Kennedy.” — Daisuke Obana, N. Hoolywood
