Hypebae, the best website on the internet about all things hypebae, has presented us with an intriguing day-in-the-life video about Zappa, a Dutch Instagram cat whose streetwear collection would put to shame most of the 14-year-old boys spending their lives in the line for Supreme drops.
This cat is chill as hell—no way any of my cats would relax enough to put on a Stussy sweatshirt and Vans—and it’s also better dressed than I am at any given time (much like the aforementioned 14-year-olds). In this video, which chronicles one day in Zappa’s life, this fricken swagged-out kitty wears Vetements, Comme des Garçons Play, Off-White, and Stone Island, among other less pricey but no less credible streetwear brands. I mean, how do they even make a Vetements raincoat in cat size? Why does nothing Demna-related come up when I search for “Vetements for babies”? And why is this cat so much cooler than I am? Oh, because that shit is CUSTOM. Let the cat tell it, in its Hypebae Q&A:
You’ve been rocking brands from Stussy to Off-White™. How do you usually shop for your clothes?
Yes, I’m a big fan of streetwear right meow. I think normal “clothes” for pets are quite boring, so all my clothes are custom-made for me. Obviously, we are taking inspiration from big streetwear and fashion brands and we try to imitate their iconic pieces with super cute, mini versions. We take a lot of care in making the pieces extra realistic. When we are not making custom pieces, I like to browse the Internet and look at Gucci, Stone Island, and Céline.
Fuck me up, streetwear cat! A more pressing question: what do you call it when an animal is a fuccboi? Is it still a fuccboi? I don’t know, but I simultaneously want to be this cat, and also to die.
