The brainchild of Marjan Pejoski and Sasko Bezovski (creative director and manager, respectively), London-based label KTZ was established in 2003 as a natural progression from the duo’s Soho store: Kokon to Zai. This is a brand renowned for its designs that blend anarchy, modernity and history, all while being completely unique and cutting edge.
The KTZ AW17 collection carried on in the same vein. Showcasing both men’s and women’s clothing, KTZ demonstrated that gender knows no boundaries, with male models wearing full skirts and laced-up corsets over parkas and females models in oversized bomber jackets that echoed the men’s.
The aforementioned laces were a continual feature throughout the collection – used on everything from leather leggings and dresses to baseball caps and deconstructed tailored jackets – creating a decidedly punk, Gothic feel. This was offset with military influences, seen in outfits of khaki and black, large knitted camo-print jumpers and hefty leather boots.
