With the abundance of satanic and occult imagery in videos and music over the past several years, it is hardly a surprise to see it spill to the world of fashion. KTZ or Kokon To Zai, is the latest high end designer fashion line to jump on the entertainment’s world’s trend of promoting esoteric symbols and the occult. And now many of the biggest stars in the world from Rihanna to Kanye West, are wearing this clothing line. KTZ along with several other brands are continuing the indoctrination of society into the occult and away from the knowledge of God.
Meaning ‘East meets West’ in Japanese, Kokon to Zai is a fashion label founded by Macedonian design team Marjan Pejoski and Sasha Bezovski following the success of their Soho boutique of the same name. Stockists of avant-garde designers such as Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and Jeremy Scott, Kokon to Zai’s own ready-to-wear for men and women has a heavy focus on bold print and colour and experimental silhouettes and is shown as part of London Fashion Week.

KTZ clothing made one of its first appearances when Illuminati superstar Rihanna was sporting her outfit at a basketball game. Beginning and End has covered Rihanna’s satanic lyrics and imagery extensively in two articles. Her outfit (shown above) featured a large pentagram or five pointed star, pointed down in the position of the Baphomet. The symbol of the pentagram is commonly used in witchcraft and magical rituals to summon demonic spirits. As Christian news site Cutting Edge reported:
“This Pentagram is a White Magic symbol used to conjure “angels” into this dimension. Listen: “The pentagram is among the most frequently used of magical symbols, and finds its way into a wide variety of different occult and esoteric sources … in a design for a secret fraternity called the Order of the Rosy Cross, in one of the magic tablets used by the occultist John Dee [1560’s] for calling angels.” [Frederick Goodman, “Magic Symbols “, p. 148]
NOTE: When an occultist believes he has conjured “angels” into this realm, the Bible scholar knows he has conjured up demons masquerading as angels! [2 Corinthians 11:14]” (source).
Since then Rihanna has become a poster-child for the clothing line:
What Does It All Mean?
“Symbolism is the language of the Mysteries; in fact it is the language not only of mysticism and philosophy but of all Nature, for every law and power active in universal procedure is manifested to the limited sense perceptions of man through the medium of symbol. Every form existing in the diversified sphere of being is symbolic of the divine activity by which it is produced. By symbols men have ever sought to communicate to each other those thoughts which transcend the imitations of language. Rejecting man-conceived dialects as inadequate and unworthy to perpetuate divine ideas, the Mysteries thus chose symbolism as a far more ingenious and ideal method of preserving their transcendental knowledge.
In a single figure a symbol may both reveal and conceal, for to the wise the subject of the symbol is obvious, while to the ignorant the figure remains inscrutable. Hence, he who seeks to unveil the secret doctrine of antiquity must search for that doctrine not upon the open pages of books which might fall into the hands of the unworthy but in the place where it was originally concealed.” –Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages p. 38.
Manly P. Hall, 33rd degree Freemason who is considered by the organization to be one of their greatest members of all time, compiled an exhaustive encyclopedia of the occult called The Secret Teachings of All Ages in which he researched the various mystery religious traditions of the past several thousand years and concluded they are all concealing the same secret or “Great Arcana” (which in true occult fashion, is never actually revealed in the book) and leading society in the same direction: an age where a select few initiates will achieve god-like status on Earth all led by one special leader. In the quote above, he explains the importance of symbols to the occultist. Many Bible scholars believe that the use of symbols go all the way back to the tower of Babel – the first rebellion by man against God after the global flood:
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.
So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. – Genesis 11:1-9.
The tower was no mere monument. It was an attempt to unite the world in an occult world government against God. As a judgment for this sin, God confounded the single language of the people of the world. Suddenly, people who knew each other could no longer communicate because they did not speak the same language. As a result, the various people groups with common language were scattered all over the Earth by The Lord. It is believed that at this time, some in the occult started the use of symbols as a common language to be used among the initiates, that could cross the divinely-imposed language barrier.
Why Are So Many Symbols Being Used Today?
The gradual evolution of individual’s thought processes to where his/her mind is naturally thinking in tune with the desired thought pattern consistent with the New World Order. The objective is to so thoroughly condition people that they will not realize that their thinking is being framed by any outside agency or people; rather, they will think that their thoughts are spontaneous. This is known as the “Evolution Of Human Thought”. (Alice Bailey,The Externalisation Of The Hierarchy, p. 588).
Alice Bailey, an Illuminati New Age Movement founder and disciple of Helena Blavatsky, wrote a book called The Externalisation Of The Hierarchy which laid out the plan to usher in the New World Order in which the New Age and occult movement was the dominant religion of the world. Channeling a demonic spirit to write her book, Bailey said that in order for the Hierarchy – the fallen angelic and demonic beings who commune with magic practitioners, to truly return to the world openly and usher in the New World Order, there needed to be a “paradigm shift” in society, where the masses abandoned Christianity and Biblical principles in favor of New Age mysticism. All to help invoke the “New Age Christ” – a false messiah-figure who would lead all people to world peace, one religion, one unified world government and immortality.
Bailey predicted that the paradigm shift would occur throughout the twentieth century, as those who follow the ancient mystery religions slowly and subtly share their secrets with society at large. A process of indoctrination done through promoting the occult, witchcraft and mysticism by making them trendy and appealing to the average person. And today whether it is rock music, hip hop or bubble gum pop, there is no shortage of artists who have lined up to use esoteric and occult symbols in their music and videos.
The designers of KTZ were not oblivious to this at all. In fact, their clothing is directly inspired by the occult practices. As stated in an article reviewing their clothing line:
This year’s Autumn-Winter women’s ready-to-wear collection was inspired by the Occult and the tarot deck, or Marjor Arcana. Head designer Koji Maruyama told Sleek he was inspired by a deck he has owned since childhood.
“It’s quite direct but it’s from this tarot pack that I have been using since I was 11, which I still have. I have been really interested in symbolism for a while now, probably since school, but AW13 really started with this William Blake illustrated tarot card that I found during the design process for the SS13 women’s collection”
From the hanged man to the lovers, death and temperance, the devil and the hierophant; KTZ presented a dark, theatrical collection typically dripping with symbolism in a palette of fabrics running through leather, wool and PVC to chenille, silks, lamé and organza. The girls could have marched straight out of the restricted section of the library to pounding Diplo (a characteristic KTZ flourish); a coven of streetwise Satanists. (source) [Emphasis added].
So the designer of the clothing line openly states that his inspiration was the tarot, which he has been using since he was a child. Tarot cards are cards with distinct designs on them that are used by those involved in the practice of the occult to try and see into the future. The Bible is clear that this is a clear sin:
When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God. – Deuteronomy 18:9-13.
At this time in ancient Israelite history, the Promised Land was occupied by the Canaanites, nations who were steeped in the worship of demons, fallen angels and Satan. Thus God gave the Israelites very detailed rules for making sure they did not fall into the sinful rebellion of these people. The use of tarot cards is a form of divination and the Bible is clear that this practice is an abomination to Him. Whether it is tarot cards, a Ouija board or going to a medium, all these practices involve summoning demonic spirits.
The Lord, in His love for humanity, gives stern warning to avoid these beings at all costs. But as all humans are born with a sin nature that tends to rebellion, many have fallen for the seduction of the occult. The book of Ephesians explains the spiritual battle taking place for the hearts and minds of those who are not born again Christians:
And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) – Ephesians 2:1-5.
The unsaved world – people who do not believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins, are being led by spirits under the authority of satan. The Scripture above refers to the Devil as “the prince of the power of the air” indicating Satan’s temporary power and earthly influence. The spirit of Satan wants the heart and mind of a human being not to focus on him (not yet), but instead to focus on themselves. To serve their own desires and have no regard for the judgment of God, the Bible or any concept of sin and eternal damnation.
This same spiritual influence once led all Christians – whether it’s pastors, Sunday school teachers or this author. But when a person believes in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died for the sins of the world on the cross and rose again on the third day, they receive a new spirit. And this spirit, made from God, seeks to serve and please God rather than oneself and our sinful desires. This is the meaning of being born again. And the former corrupted spirit, dies forever.
This is the truth that Satan seeks to hide from the world. The Bible says: “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).
Pop culture been a major tool to keep society blinded from the Gospel and focused on wealth, sex, violence, drugs and all manner of rebellion. And the fashion industry has now joined in by bringing the ancient symbols of the occult to clothing as the world is further prepared to worship the false messiah, the Antichrist, satanically-empowered leader who will rule the world in the final 3 ½ years before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to Earth.
Koji Maruyama, the chief designer of KTZ used a design from a tarot card called “The Hierophant.” This tarot card was designed by Satanist Aleister Crowley. Beginning and End has extensively documented Crowley’s influence on 20th century pop culture. A 33rd degree Freemason, occult practitioner and enemy of Christianity, Crowley called himself “The Beast” and “666” both references to the Antichrist from the Bible. He encouraged witchcraft, drug use, sexual promiscuity and pedophilia. In his book The World’s Tragedy Crowley proclaimed his hatred of Christianity and desire to destroy it.
And this is one of the main influences for the KTZ clothing line. In his interview on his inspiration, Maruyama once again showed his link to Crowley’s legacy:
While I was working on this collection I also saw the Kenneth Anger exhibition in Paris…such beautiful, magical visuals. Then suddenly all my friends were into tarot cards and started using them every day! That made me feel very sure about my direction. All of the working process became so real. (source).
Movie director Kenneth Anger, an open Crowley Disciple was the director of such occult inspired films as Lucifer Rising. KTZ paid tribute to Crowley not only in using his tarot designs, but by referencing The Order of The Golden Dawn, an occult secret society which Crowley belonged to an brought to prominence in the late 19th century. As Beginning and End detailed in the article “Illuminati Shoutout: R&B Singer Ciara Promotes Satanist Aleister Crowley In New Video”, we showed clips from the singer’s newest videos where she wears an enormous coat and boots emblazoned with “The Hermetic Order of The Golden Dawn.”
The outfits were designed by KTZ. So again, the satanic influence is clear. Even a secular news article recognized the connection:
One of the more robust looks included an embroidered shearling jumper dress with matching thigh-highs, vinyl gloves and horned tortoiseshell glasses, incorporating perhaps the strongest aspect of the collection; the Gothic serif type and Roman numeral motif. Slogans like Death, Magician and Golden Dawn were embroidered flush down sleeves, legs, collars and one right shirt breast; street-wear for the club-kid children of Aleister Crowley. (source).
Since Rihanna debuted their clothing, many celebrities have now embraced KTZ clothing for their public appearances.
Choose Eternal Life
Pray for the designers of this clothing line and others that are promoting the occult to repent and stop being pawns in the spiritual war taking place for the hearts and minds of society. Many people are worried about their future and their fate. Many people want answers to the confounding questions of life. That is natural. But the solution is not magic or mystical practices. It is the cross that provides the answer to the greatest problem facing humanity: our sin. Satan’s chief desire is to use people for his own ends even if it means they end up in the Lake of Fire for eternity with him.
Jesus Christ’s mission in His ministry on Earth was to fulfill God The Father’s plan of salvation from the beginning of time and give His own life to suffer in the place of all people for their sins. And rather than keep it a secret, He instructed all believers to proclaim His message of love and forgiveness all over the world. If you are not a Christian, Lord willing your eyes are being opened to the occult initiation taking place all throughout pop culture. It may seem subtle but its ultimate goal is rebellion against the one true God. Choose eternal life and believe in Jesus Christ. If you are already a Christian, continue to share the Gospel in love and let your words and actions be a symbol that points people to the real Truth: all can be forgiven in Jesus Christ.
