Following its blood-pumping menswear offer in June, KTZ returned to the underground at XXL, Vauxhall’s notorious cruising club, for a second time. Themes of motor racing coupled with the latent sense of danger echoed in the showspace, prevailing alongside the nod to 80s Post-Punk aesthetic for this season. The sharp smell of bleach in the air that was all too familiar jolted the audience back to last season’s highlights. Designer Marjan Pejoski’s exploration of urban street culture continued into the darker back alleys of an unspecified dystopia, a place where most other designers would not dare venture. Larger-than-life tufty manes reminiscent of 80s music icon Siouxsie Sioux transformed models into predatory creatures of the night. Crushed Tyvek cords worn over fish net tights sealed the image of these girls as streetwalkers on the prowl. At times, the garments resembled cardboard boxes that have been deconstructed. Metallic hardware and plenty of leather supplied sexual energy that is inextricable from KTZ’s collections. Pejoski aced at building on the brand’s increasingly pronounced iconography. Season after season, the front row is attended by KTZ’s finest custodians, loyal fans including Nicola Formichetti, which only goes to show its far-reaching resonance.
