KTZ AW 2011 collection

Although interior design has more been occupying my thoughts of late (due to me doing up my new house), a few things have made me go “SQUEE!” lately.

You may remember I wrote about KTZ or Kokon To Zai last November. From Marjan Pejoski of Kokon To Zai come these amazing cow-footed boots:

Crazy, huh? Of course, KTZ’s latest shoes in fluoro pink/orange and yellow have been making waves too. Nicki Minaj was spotted wearing the fluoro pink platforms at NY Fashion week, somewhat drawing attention away from Anna Wintour!

 

Below is the mens neon yellow biker boot, which also makes me swoon. The whole KTZ Austumn/Winter 2011 range is outstanding, fusing the current trend for vibrant colour (which they have ALWAYS used), with detailed tailoring and japanese influences. See the obi in this outfit:

I adore the juxtaposition of the trellis print with the zigzag print, offset again by black contrast accents. The angular lines of the black vinyl accents seem almost Gareth Pugh-like, were it not for the whimsical fringing (which some may prefer to be absent):

The print is used throughout the collection not only in the yellow, but also in the aforementioned pink, and khaki green.

There is a great range of menswear too, and it is something I can see walking out the door of Shibuya edgy boutique Candy. Check out the KTZ range they have at Fake Tokyo.com, which includes various jackets, skirts, t-shirts, vests, shoes, bags and scarves. But be warned, they are not cheap!

Oh, and before I go, I leave you with this a-maaaa-zing leather jacket with crystal embroidered spiderweb, from the KTZ archive collection:

How I would LOVE to wear that to the next Cobweb Club! Mind you, I think I feel a DIY cobweb jacket moment coming on….
