KTZ interprets Lord of the Flies for LFWM

KTZ ventured outside its usual colour palette for its SS18 at London Men's Fashion Week.

KTZ presented its SS18 show at London Fashion Week Men’s on Sunday 11th June at the BFC show space in Strand. The show acted as an interpretation of 1954 novel ‘Lord of the Flies’ by William Golding with the collection striving to recreate the concept of a group of boys being stranded on an island, forced to form new identities and work as a team to survive.

Such a concept could be explicitly seen throughout the versatility of this season’s garments alongside their distressed nature and earthy aesthetic. The colour palette mimicked the colours of nature, hardly straying too far from the conventional shades of khaki, beige and black and only occasionally featuring splashes of print and checked fabrics. Notable looks from SS18 included sheer t-shirts and headpieces made from thin metal chains alongside leather playsuits and oversized ponchos.

Accents of silver that appeared prevalent throughout the collection represented a shift in identity amongst the boys and aimed to cultivate a juxtaposition against the more classic and conventional materials that made up the basis of each garment.
