For SS15 infamous designer Marjan Pejoski has created a collection that is unique and intriguing to the core. In typical KTZ style, the collection defiantly spits in the face of the stereotypical pastels shades and floral prints that we often see at spring summer shows.
Instead, at its centre is a Roman vibe and cameo motif which features on everything from the jewellery to the print. Pejoski blurs the boundaries between past and present by taking the cameo symbol and re-inventing it in this edgy and unusual monochromatic SS15 offering.
Quilting and shiny black crocodile skin bring a luxurious textural element to the collection, otherwise mimicked in the mosaic tile pattern found in the rest of the looks. Gold sequins further add to this sense of glamour, adorning white, sheer shirts, leggings and a gorgeous shift dress.
With regards to tailoring, we see floaty kimonos with structured jackets and textured quilted tops creating an, on the whole, very contemporary aesthetic. Femininity creeps in through the use of delicate white ribbon, upstaged however by the provocative edge provided by sheer fabrics, cut out tailoring and fishnet detail.
Unusually for KTZ, accessories are rather minimal with only a few chunky cameo rings and statement necklaces to be seen. Instead, combined knee-high socks with fishnet hand gloves, and pointy hats are added to every look.
KTZ is n every season favourite for our editor, Francesca Bassenger, and it’s easy to see why: Pejoski always brings something fresh to the party.
