I'm a big fan of pop culture mashups, so when a pair of t-shirts combining former stars of BEVERLY HILLS, 90210 and a couple of iconic bands crossed my feed, my attention was captured. From Los Angeles-based Patti Lapel in collaboration with frank & jan comes "Ian Zeppelin" and "Judas Priestly," bringing Ian Ziering and Led Zeppelin together with Jason Priestly and Judas Priest for what I assume is the very first time. I have no idea how long these have been available, These were first released about six months ago alongside a now-MIA Brian Austin Green/Red Hot Chili Peppers mashup. Like other offerings from Patti Lapel, expect them to be limited-edition. Personally, I'm a big Ian Zeppelin fan.
