The concept for the new KTZ men’s collection began with the idea of endless possibilities. The moment in time, during innocence, when one can invent their own character and be whomever they want to be. Before the pressures and expectations of society are set upon us, imagination overrules.
Citing artist Chris Burden’s Metropolis II; a complex, large scale, kinetic sculpture modelled after a fast-paced modern city, the feeling of imagination and innocence can be recaptured.
For this collection, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. A layered mix of unusual industrial materials are abundant, such as paper, cardboard, rubber, plastic, aluminum, nylon and electrical tape. Architectural fabrics and elements of recycling are also prevalent throughout, developing something beautiful and unexpected.
