His name may harken back to Biblical times, but rapper Theophilus London is clearly a guy with 21st-century style.

Today he’s playing the part of model/muse for Helmut Lang’s Spring 2014 menswear line. The name Helmut Lang has always been synonymous with a kind of sophisticated, street-wise way of dressing, so it should come as no surprise that the Trinidadian-born, Brooklyn-raised MC is an admirer of the brand.

In the video below, Theophilus chats with his equally style-savvy manager Brendan Fallis about clothes, music and the creative process at large. After you’ve heard what he has to say, give a listen to his new EP Lovers Holiday II and then head to @BarneysMan, where Theophilus will be our guest photographer all day.
