Having just dropped their latest summer styles, Fasthouse, the Purveyor of Good Times, planned a photo-shoot with the gorgeous Kelly Roux and Laura Bishop to showcase some of their new gear and threads.
We caught up with both models to get their thoughts on the shoot as well as the new gear – see what they had to say…

What were your first thoughts when you were asked to be a part of the Fasthouse 2021 gear shoot?
Kelly:I was super excited in all honesty. I love the brand and love the people behind the brand, it’s always a great time!
Laura:I was really excited to work with such an awesome brand!
How would you best sum up the afternoon of shooting?
Kelly:It actually felt like a party with friends, except we were all riding motorbikes and taking more selfies than usual.
Laura:I had a really great time. It was definitely one of the most fun photo shoots I’ve ever had.
Which part and look of the shoot was your favourite, and why?
Kelly:I wasn’t even wearing it, but I absolutely loved the long shirt, shorts and boots look! It was just so sexy (yes, Laura Bishop is my woman crush).
Laura:I really liked shooting on the red and white Fasthouse bike, the pics were awesome. I also had so much fun shooting with my girl Kelly Roux, her and I make a great team.
As one of the first to have a hands-on experience with the new 2021 gear, what’s your take on it?
Kelly:It’s really sexy. If I rode bikes more often that’s the gear I’d want in my cupboard [laughs]!
Laura:All of the gear is awesome. The colours and style are really vibrant and fun, and the quality is amazing.
If you could cop any of the gear for yourself – which item/s would it be?
Kelly:The new FastHouse Crop Hoodie, this is definitely going to be part of my wardrobe.
Laura:I already got myself the black crop hoodie from Fasthouse, which reads “purveyor of good times”. I absolutely love it! I also really liked the yellow, white and black racing shirt, I might get my hands on one of those next.
Purveyor of Good Times – a term Fasthouse lives by. How do you feel this translates to the brand and your own lifestyle?
Kelly:I personally couldn’t think of a better term to describe the brand and the creators of it. How can you not have a good time riding bikes, and looking great doing it?!
Laura:This term describes the Fasthouse brand so well! The Fasthouse team definitely lives by this, they purvey nothing but good vibes and are always having a great time. I think that this relates so well to my own lifestyle too, which would explain why I had so much fun at the shoot and got on so well with the Fasthouse team.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Dirt Bike riders?
Kelly:“My type” [laughs]! I have a long standing joke about this.
Laura:Dare-devils that know how to have a good time!
How would you best describe the Fasthouse brand in one sentence?
Kelly:The kind of brand that promotes the same quality lifestyle as the quality of its material.
Laura:The Fasthouse brand is vibrant, exciting and stylish! I associate it with nothing but good vibes! I really loved working with the Fasthouse team and feel honoured to have had the opportunity to wear all of their fresh new gear.
