Can your brain wrap itself around everything that is going on with Lord Zapata? Probably not. And that’s OK. That’s why we’re here. To tell you this is cool. You know why? Because no one is taking risks and making thought provoking clothes like Lord Zapata.
The visual execution of Lord Zapata’s brand is one of the most memorable I’ve seen in 2017. The website for his first collection is thematically on point: a bit ominous and a perfect simulation of how to style the clothes. He is able to frame a dystopian revolution with cross-stitched denim trousers, black leather jackets reminiscent of rockstars in the 80s. Currently available for purchase are the heavily branded jackets that are hand sewn to futuristic, defiant shapes, rich with colors, textures and emotions.
The one of a kind “The world is yours” jacket is the most noteworthy out the bunch with images of icons such as Marilyn Manson, Tony Montana, and Elvira sewed onto the jacket along with cheetah print, a portion of the infamous Peacock arbor by Sue Schlabach and a myriad of other textures to make the icons stand out. Words alone can’t describe how Muse is one of the most promising brands to emerge out of Florida coming into 2018.
Congratulations to Lord Zapata on the launch of his site and his recent engagement. We’re excited to see what’s in store for the designer this year.
