Marjan Pejoski’s Spring ’15 womenswear collection for KTZ began where his menswear outing left off. He was inspired by ancient Greece and neoclassicism, which resulted in a series of sporty-meets-saucy opening black-and-white looks covered in giant cabochons. When it came to his embellished dresses, the fit was great. And a little black bathing suit (also covered in Pejoski’s motif of choice) was topped with a wonderful, voluminous mesh jacket. The models’ hats—black cones with sculptural details—as well as sheer black striped socks, were cool accents.
The collection blended eccentric sexed-up clubwear with streetwise basics, like a printed black mesh KTZ sports jersey, or a fancy zip-up sweatshirt. A whole series of shiny, exaggerated, mock-croc outfits inspired by old armor Pejoski found at the British Museum were pure fantasy, as were the designer’s Grecian superhero getups, which involved capes, breastplates, and beaded stockings.
