London Fashion Week

And once again a new KTZ collection made my heart beat faster. For his first show in New York the designer Marjan Pejoski created a collection that pays tribute to the Native Americans. But it wouldn’t be KTZ, if it didn’t take you on a journey through many more foreign countries and cultures. All these tribal patterns, embroidered blanket coats and moccasin heels made me want to go bison hunting. And wherever there were no patterns, there was leather and leather and more leather.

I really like their new attempt in using colour instead of keeping to black and white! I think, like in the men's collection, it shows a great development within the brand. Read more about what kind of crazy stuff Pejoski made use of for his embroideries besides beads and feathers in this interview with Milk Made.  

Talk to me a little about the concepts behind this collection.
Well it was my first in the USA, so as a way of paying tribute to the country, to the land, and all the indigenous people, it was based on the Native Americans, after a lot of research obviously. With every collection I go through lots of troubles when I take different countries and places, and coming to America was something that I wanted to explore. I’ve always adored Native Americans and their culture since I was a kid and I always loved their flamboyancy and their furs and feathers and leathers, and it was just something that was almost very close to me to do.

What was on your mood board for this season? Native Americans I suppose?
Yes that, but I just wanted to bring in obviously a modern twist with a lot of English fetishes. But it was tricky as I wanted to bring that out in a kind of gentle fashion. So KTZ has been around for 12 years now, how do you think your brand has grown and changed? Well it was an obvious change and obvious progression, and you know it’s something I suppose that took lots of energy and lots of effort but also lots of love and appreciating. And I have so much gratitude for so many people who helped bring us to where we are now.

Was there anything in this collection that was a first for you?
Well there’s a certain technique that we kind of always explore for something new, and this time it was something we customized and worked with artists for. For this collection, it was developing different objects from boning –we used lots of real bones in the collection actually.

Really, what kind of bones? Huuuuman bones! But yeah, we do a lot of custom-made things—every detail you see is everything we developed in house, the whole thing.
