Music is the passion that took Sasko Bezovski from Macedonia to London where he opened the first Kokon To Zai boutique in Soho, formerly a creative place for dj. Together with Marjan Pejoski he blended his passions for music and fashion and launched the vanguard brand KTZ characterized by colourful prints and cutting-edge shapes as well as trendy details which now has stores in Notting Hill and Paris too.
The KTZ Fall/Winter 2012 menswear collection embodies some of the main features of the brand. Experimental cuts and shapes are the fil rouge and tops are the focus. Wide overcoat and jacket almost cover the models’ legs while long shirts show underneath creating the play of “architectural layers”.
In working with shapes, KTZ has gone beyond the traditional male aesthetic, flowing into the female one. Short pleated skirts are juxtaposed to pants or even substitute them if longer. Tunics show underneath the jackets too and become a sort of toil. They are enriched with church print series and religious symbols which spread also on ties, hats and berets.
Checked motives are in the collection too also in bright colours as yellow, red and electric blue, giving this season a punk and typically British touch while golden chains and leather gloves suggest gothic inspiration.
Pushing boundaries as always, the rebel and vanguard collection is now available at 10 Corso Como.
