The Dalston Whiz Kid
Chris Kelly is a fashion designer with his own label – Theatre De La Mode. He wears a striking red puffer jacket (bought in a thrift store), Cheap Monday skinny blue jeans, Kurt Geiger trainers, Marion Protrofsky bag and a piece of an old jersey as a neck scarf – all topped off with an H&M cap. Chris whizzed past me on his pushbike and I decided to give chase – weaving precariously through morning rush hour traffic to catch him. Taking the photos by this Dalston scooter shop – with perhaps a little serendipity and a bit of luck – seemed like the perfect spot.
Chris’s collection is appearing at London Fashion Week in February 2009.
