Zebra Katz

Queer rapper wows London fashionistas for Alex Mattsson’s menswear collection.

You may have noticed a bit of a queer take over of hip hop/rap/whatever-you-want-to-call-it, what with Frank Ocean, Le1f (interviewed in the current issue, naturally) and top of the tastemaker list, artist Zebra Katz.

He was in London this week for - hash tag alert - #LCM, or London Mens’ Fashion Week or whatever-you-want-to-call-it. And Mz Katz did a short little set for Alex Mattsson, with hot models poised in the fashion designers gear throughout.

The whole look of Mattsson's collection is very black, industrial-punk, with tonnes of leather and alterations and barely a patch of flesh left without tattoos, both real and fake adorning every model. For the record we wanted to take the beary one home in the army helmet, but there was something for everyone, providing you like the oh-so East London get up.

And of course if you’ve heard of Zebra, you will undoubtedly have heard this potty mouthed number which he performed to much hipster head nodding:

Rude. Kidz, eh?
