ktz lfw aw13
Scouring through the mass of online galleries post-fashion weeks is a fond and compulsive pastime of mine which almost compensates for the lack of even b-row access.

Now the fash week furore is fading and the collections have been virtually absorbed, I can share my paltry ponderings on the season to come and designers who caught my eye, starting on home turf at LFW.

From the first day of the event, it’s KTZ….

The brand’s cultish collection channelled religious symbolism, pagan branding and eerie, yet elaborate compositions. They have developed the darker side of their SS13 collection of delicate, romantic lace detailing to create a magical journey paved with gothic garments.

Satanic headwear and hats shrouded the eyes whilst inflictions of bright, monochrome Aztec print and cyber metallics offered a light relief throughout. Black leather fringing, billowing pleated a-lines, clinched waistlines and rounded shoulders were staple to this sinister assortment.

This collection certainly tickled my inner vamp and KTZ presented with a bold confidence which set their pieces firmly in my mind.
