London Fashion Week S/S 2011 Catwalk Review: KTZ

The fabulous KTZ brand is part the cult Kokon To Zai shop and it was the only catwalk show I went to on menswear Wednesday 22nd September 2010. Illustrations by Naomi Law and Aniela Murphy.

Kokon To Zai is the cult Soho shop from whose loins the catwalk brand KTZ has sprung. Because I have been somewhat out of the loop I hadn’t actually connected the two together until I found KTZ on the stands in Somerset House. But suffice to say I used to borrow quite a lot of clothes from Kokon To Zai when I worked as a stylist so it was with somewhat excited anticipation that I made sure to attend just this one show on menswear Wednesday.

Well, I say menswear Wednesday, but quite a few designers slipped a fair amount of womenswear onto the catwalk, and so it was with KTZ which seemed to be almost half and half. Though hard to tell, what with the inclusion of some gorgeous long haired male models.

The show was a whistlestop tour through monochrome and gold printed opulence, styled with golden crowns and huge colourful gems stacked across both male and female hands. Blazers met bodycon met baggy hoodies, just the kind of wearable bling that has me salivating like a hungry pug.

Sometimes I wish I was still a stylist just so that I could book these clothes out and have a play‚Ķ but then I remember what the job really entailed: long hours of packhorse like drudgery. Maybe not then, but I’d love to sink my chops into some prime KTZ.
