Symbols have recently become KTZ’s trademark, as were featured abundantly at AW13. This time they’ve had a pep-up, with ying and yang symbols taking centre on long gowns, bold silver markings striking out against an all black canvas and slogans such as “Poison” and “Terror” appearing across chests and trainers. The long layers and strategic fit are complimented with bold jewellery in piercing silver. Jewellery that takes menacing shapes in spikes, orbs and studs. Featured on snapbacks, shoes, masks, wrists and skirt linings the metallic additions brought this collection into an even tougher scene. As well as symbols, KTZ have played with print, coating an entire look in the same colour and print scheme. Ancient map prints were stretched over double latching rucksacks, headscarves, and knee length pinafores, while bold geometric prints in deep blue and red was found on harem pants, crombie coats and rib cuffed bombers.
The subliminal message here might not hit home straight away. World affairs are being in-explicitly played through symbols, prints and flag like capes, with words like “terror” probably insinuating more than first thought. Whatever the message, KTZ demonstrated an incredible eye for detail, finishing and print-work through this fantastic collection.

Today me and Arvin visited the Manila Zoo. First of all the place smells really bad and the zoo has aging facilities. It's a tragic sight. The condition of this place is very bad and distressing for the animals. Don't think only about yourself and the fun for yourself because for the animals it is definitely not fun. The people who are saying that this is a good place for kids to learn about "wildlife" really have no idea what the word "wild" means. About the best thing here were the fact that the tigers seem happy and energetic. The rest of the zoo is not well-maintained and we saw someone take a piece of wood to poke the crocodile. LOL
Its not everyday you see turtles having sex. The male turtle look pissed though, maybe beacause he doesnt like me taking photos.
Do not feed the animals!? Boring! The goats love sundae, I can see it in their face, they are looking at me while I feed them sundae and its amazing. I dont understand why I feel so happy when Im with goats there's something about them that makes me feel home. I wish I could sleep-over one night with the lovely goats. They are the coolest creature ever and so they ate all my sundae even the plastic spoon! o-oh! (crunchy!!!)
