A man who allegedly claimed to be a stylist working for Johnny Depp and rocker Brandon Flowers has been arrested in New York City.

David Tripp is accused of impersonating a celebrity stylist to obtain designer clothes from upmarket Manhattan stores using a stolen credit card.

The 31 year old is alleged to have targeted a Jil Sander store in April (14) claiming to be fulfilling an order for his boss Johnny Depp, and at a Marc Jacobs boutique, where he is believed to have told employees he was obtaining clothes for The Killers frontman Flowers to wear in a photoshoot.

Marc Jacobs manager Brian Britt became suspicious and alerted police, who arrested Tripp.

He has since been charged with identity theft and grand larceny, and released on bail. Tripp has branded the allegations against him "unequivocally inaccurate and unjust," according to The New York Times.
