Show Review: KTZ Fall 2014
By Faith

KTZ’s Marjan Pejoski is well-versed in pushing the envelope (remember, he is the designer behind Bjork’s swan-dress), so naturally, he did just that with the brand’s latest collection for Pre-Fall 2014. In the offerings, he brought us all to the Himalayan mountains, with designs that pulled inspiration from the garb of Sadhu monks, all things arctic, Sanskrit calligraphy, and a touch of Western influence in hockey.

Black, white, and grey dominated the color palette, with most of the models’ faces and bodies painted a metallic silver. Adornment was also on high, commanded by silver spikes, necklaces, and tribal headpieces that hung down to the forehead or nose.

The collection was all about the hood, with the age-old covering making an appearance on drawstring jackets and wool coats in fur-lined and trimmed, quilted, and logo-printed iterations.

Embroidery and mirror embellishment further connected the clothing with its Indian inspiration, decorating toppers, roomy shorts and trousers, and sporty bomber jackets.

I’m not sure that I’d like for both myself and my future boyfriend to be wearing leggings while we’re out and about, but the silhouette definitely played to Pejoski’s hockey inspiration. Not sure we’d ever see the New York Islanders in anything as avant-garde as this though.

What I enjoy the most about Fashion Weeks across the globe are the many chances to learn. Sometimes, designers just want to have a bit of fun with trends, and other times, their inspirations pull from a culture or influence that is unbeknownst to me in entirety. Really worthwhile fashion is rooted in controversy and here, Pejoski used the swastika: one of the world’s most notable and villainized symbols. The learn here (through some handy dandy Google research) is that this emblem existed long before Nazi Germany, popular in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism marking the invocation of goddess Lakshmi – the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity. The symbol was interwoven here on everything from harem pants to travel-ready duffel bags.

For its finale looks, the designs gave way to ultimate purity, in head-to-toe white ensembles. Quilted jackets, tunics, fur: it seemed the brand intended for the models to blend right in with a snowy backdrop.

    GET EDUCATED HERE ON THE 卍 PEOPLE :) >>> http://www.spiritualpunx.com/swastika-education/

    This is awesome! The pattern they use is called Sayagata and is one of the most popular swastika patterns you’ll see allover the place when you look for them. It’s popular in many Asian cultures and is found on Japanese Kimonos. The swastika is the oldest symbol on the planet and has been used by EVERY culture for positive means (before WW2). It’s even in some old Jewish synagogues.

    LOVE ALL!
