Dear Shaded Viewers and Diane,
On board with the plan of calling up sportswear by way of its primary flare, something we've seen also at Sibling and Liam Hodges this season, was Marjan Pejoski with KTZ. His winter collection rang urban alright, yet not the kind that lets you blend in with the crowd, quirky sneaker or not. It came in a bold and leathery, often striped, elementary colour scheme of yellow and red, black and white, a hint of forest green. There were nods the ring and motocross gear in there too, but scheduled as the show was, right after presentations by both dunhill and Gieves & Hawkes, what was clear from the start was that you wouldn't find these guys playing polo anytime soon. indeed, bar those Union Jack flags that were almost pointedly worn as reassuring capes, this was an intriguingly American season for KTZ – with baseball as its driving theme. Knee-breeches, birdcage masks, and most importantly, stitches, featured throughout a great variety of outerwear, which was mostly oversize and visibly branded until a series of more formal, double-breasted notch-lapel styles towards the end. There also were fanny packs, varsity jackets, and pinball machine embroideries. Then again, Marjan’s fascination with the US is more than a one-time affair: less than a year ago, KTZ opted to show their Native American-themed womenswear collection in New York. If the fiery fans that came to the show and after party to profess their love are anything to go by though, London is ready to all it takes to keep KTZ home.
