Menswear Day at Vauxhall Fashion Scout was full of creativity and flair, especially up in the Presentation Hall where Studio 805 and Theatre De La Mode were both exhibiting their latest collections. Once Studio 805 had finished their static installation, seats were taken for Theatre De La Mode’s fashion/dance film, ‘Physical Culture.’ Christopher Kelly, creative director of the brand, is known for his lavish and innovating ways of presenting his collections, and this year he did not disappoint.  Kelly took inspiration for the film from the energetic style of the nineties, and the obvious African influence resulted in a playful and colourful film, where models stood rigid as others danced around them. Geometric prints and shapes were overlaid on top of the models creating colour, vibrancy and movement.

As always, Theatre De La Mode stuck to their signature oversized style, featuring printed silk shirts and matching shorts in a palette of tangerine, oatmeal and coral. Drawstring gathered waists and heavy draping were added to create the relaxed daytime look that is key to the brands aesthetic. Another successful season at Vauxhall Fashion Scout for Kelly and his artisan fashion label.
