The Stuff of Seams

"We are inspired by myths and legends, the labyrinth, black roses, and goddesses of flawless beauty."

"I'm completely inspired by Julie Christie's style [in 'Darling'] — a combo of simple classics with an effortless youth, it's all boy meets girl, romantic, while unfussy." — Charles Nolan

"[The tones were] inspired by an old photo album of my grandparents in their 30s — with the warm patina of slight photo decay. The forms juxtapose more mod and linear tailoring. I've drawn heavily from the work of Oscar Niemeyer between 1930 and the Sixties." — Lela Rose

"The collection bares sensuality in a neutral palette of couture fabrics embracing luxury and ease for a modern lifestyle." — Luca Orlandi, Luca Luca

"For this collection, everything is new bon ton — Western and Native American cultures meet rock 'n' roll. Rich Crow Nation colors and subtle earth tones are highlighted with opulent rhinestones and intricate detailing. Inspired by my 'Star-Spangled Couture,' the debut signature collection captures the essence of true American heritage." — Manuel Cuevas, Manuel

"It's an afternoon tea party with Lisa Fonssagrives and Lauren Hutton. Structured volume and power romance." — Jada Marie Simons, MarieMarie

"This season was inspired by the famous wintry journey over the Italian Alps by Hannibal, his Carthaginian army and scores of elephants during the Second Punic war." — Nicole Romano

"Moody winter films with a cosmopolitan feel. Rich people, their betrayals and intrigues. Ingenues in long wool coats and tight nylon leggings. Guys with names like Fritz who rule the local mountain, entertaining in the chalet with celebrities, movie stars, millionaires and heirs." — Jeff Halmos, John Whitledge, Sam Shipley and Josia Lamberto-Egan, Trovata

"I was primarily inspired by the work of Mark Rothko. His use of color and noncolor becomes so powerful when it effortlessly blends one into the next." — Michon Schur

"I was inspired by my time living in Paris, when I was in my early 20s. The spirit is jeune, jolie et un peu coquine!" — Michelle Smith, Milly
