Matty’s iconic look has seen him featured in everything from Dazed & Confused’s most recent issue (he stars in the Katie Shillingford/Ben Toms ‘#deadface’ editorial), to Meadham Kirchhoff’s S/S13 show at London Men’s in the summer. Modelling is really just a nice sideline though – Matty’s real focus is his own work as an emerging knitwear designer, a craft he’s currently honing at CSM. With a design style as distinct as his personal one, we figured the best way to go about our shoot with him was to have Matty modelling his own clothes, and get one of our favourite photographers, Maisie Cousins, to get some pics. We started the shoot hanging out at his flat in Stoke Newington, checking out his latest designs before taking a tour round the neighbourhood. The local shop keepers didn’t always seem to get it, but we think the photos came out great.
