Today saw the final round of London Collections: Men catwalk shows and presentations, with LCM coming to a close tonight. Myself and fellow FAB blogger Maria went to see one last show today, being the KTZ show which turned out to be phenomenal!! KTZ never disappoint and can most definitely put on a show as we found out during September’s London Fashion Week and again today at London Collections: Men.
They brought exquisite designs playing on futurism, mirrors, influences of Asia to Russia and infusions of old school hip hop to major grunge utilising only blacks and whites (colours that quite frankly never fail) oh and I can’t not mention the silver painted faces!! The collection was just a total feast of genius, meshing so many different styles yet managing to make them look effortlessly intertwined.
The collection kicked off with the models walking down the runway in all black, sporting fur, amazing textured pieces and pieces with iridescent qualities, which complimented the silver painted faces of the models and the jewellery head pieces some of them wore highlighting the almost futuristic like qualities the collection had. It soon moved on to introduction of white tribal like patterning to full on block white which was then infused with black tribal like patterning. KTZ played well with the reversing and reinstating their monochrome colour scheme throughout the show. The whites brought in a touch of Russia (ref. to winter snowy time) with gorgeous big fur pieces and their signature oversized pieces.
From start to finish the show kept us enticed and in awe of how gracefully KTZ manage to infuse so many different styles and play on monochrome so well without once making it too obvious that their collection was moving from one concept to another, and the silver faces were simply the icing on the cake!
