KTZ (aka Soho institution boutique Kokon to Zai, acronym fans) is normally pretty much the final womens show of #LFW, and is always known for a lively crowd and inimitable punk aesthetic that comes with it. But it was only when one of the best sleb frows this season (Charli XCX, Pandemonia, Nicola Roberts, Jodie Harsh – as well as a Saturday and Henry Conway and someone called Lizzie Cundy) took their seats, that the magic proper began. Tartans in complimentary monochrome checks, festooned with chains and leather accessories (including fabulous tartan platform shoes and horned flat caps) were draped across the models. The theme seemed to be Scottish cult; occult symbols and Cyrillic writing were strikingly employed across fabrics and as accents. Colour crept in with red, yellow and blue tartan checks, and oversized heart detailing on dresses showed the designers were wearing their hearts on their sleeves AND everywhere else. As ever, it was a huge collection, but my highlights were the sparkle-dusted tailoring and knitwear: absolutely magic. With this collection, KTZ once again proved why they continue to attract such a diverse and creative crowd.
