LCM Review: KTZ Men SS14
Shown at The Hospital Club as part of LCM, KTZ SS14 was an eclectic mix of prints, patterns and an eye for detail – continuing its heritage of eccentric menswear.
Head of design Koji Maruyama drew on inspiration form an array of different sources, including a liberal interpretation of Middle Eastern styles. Layers of draping print fabric built up to headwear, sculpted hoods and embellishments including studs – a fresh take on urban streetwear.
The collection consisted of crisp whites and rich hues of blue and red, decorated with bold stripes and map prints. Monochrome garments adorned silver crafted motives in the now signature KTZ style. Heavy accessories, including necklaces, clinked their way down the catwalk – a stark contrast to the flowing layers. Other accessories came in the form of large hold all bags, in matching prints.
While the collection may not be for the faint hearted as a whole, there are many wearable pieces including simple graphic print tees, boxy shirts and loose fit shorts.
