KTZ Spring/Summer 2018
A military lineup of army green and jet black with stiff construction and tough-guy exterior was what was shown down Marjon Pejoski’s runway for KTZ’s Spring 2018 collection. However trite these pieces seemed, there was some novelty mix thrown in, such his use of chain mail and scribbled words. What did seem like an odd choice here was the footwear – a combat boot of sorts with large flaps and rubber material that didn’t exactly translate to wearable nor effortless, as some models had trouble walking in these bulky shoes. The distressed sweaters felt less street-cool and more something you would find at Rue 21. While the theme certainly played throughout in a cohesive way, what was ultimately lacking was modern appeal. It would be hard to find the target KTZ customer out and about in some of these difficult, old-fashioned looks.
