Strapped up in garments panelled with lace corsetry and donning laced up biker boots, models wearing KTZ charged the runway on 8th January as part of London Fashion week.
Typical of the collections colour scheme, models were dressed predominantly in black and khaki green and clad in biker jackets, bomber jackets, caps and oversized hoodies, exhibiting a style with an alternative vibe. Setting KTZ apart from the rest was their innovative approach to fine details with lacing, that provided the garments with an array of different vocal points. The lacing featured in white against black clothing and black against khaki green clothing, creating a divergence between the surface and outlines of the garments. Laces also flowed freely from some outfits, creating different shapes in movement against the rigid structuring of the clothing.
The oversized bomber jacket contrasted against streamlined laced leggings and chunky biker boots appeared most striking on the catwalk. Embellished with biker badges on the torso and sleeves that were outlined with bold statements, set against wide striped monochrome patterns and laced panelling on the hood, and fitted with laced gloves that rang familiarly with combat attire, the outfit possessed numerous visual components, epitomizing grungy fashion.
By focussing on the fine details that lacing can create, KTZ infused colour and dimension into the dark tonal colour scheme that has been championed by the alternative fashion scene.
