Le Uniform

What fashion fads have become your wardrobe staples?

The Canadian Tuxedo / double denim look has been a part of my go-to attires for as long as I can remember. I am unsure as to when I'll eventually get sick of it (probably never). In the beginning of the year, I acquired an obsession for yellow socks. My fascination began to grow but finding perfect plain-coloured but fun gloves for my size 4 feet was a damn struggle. I thank H&M for coming out with these set of ribbed socks. My dream came true -  a dream of adding coloured socks to accessorise and give my outfit a little pop. I am stupidly excited. Ahh!

Fuck, That's Delicious

I think we can all agree that I am hundred percent killing the "food is life" aesthetic with this attire. A get-up that weirdly offers a few unexpected culinary elements (lol) — one that I enjoyed very much and felt great rocking.

A massive credit goes to the boyfriend for willingly handing me the ownership of this rad tee. The infamous 'fuck, that's delicious' words by the rapper and one of our favourite person ever, Action Bronson, magically influenced the whole shebang. It just so happened that I matched the shirt with this humongous pair of chef trousers once. It was completely unintentional that it blew my mind. Now, I am fairly too obsessed with the combo.

If you dig this t-shirt, have a look at SCRT and watch out for new releases of things in this similar prints. They are my absolute love! Also, check out my little tote upgrade. This waterproof and foldable shopper from Patta is everything.

Hello Kerstin

PEOPLE Profile:
Kerstin Resander, 19, London

Today in Le-Visualiste's 'PEOPLE' category features a free willing young individual, Kerstin. I have known her for a while. She is an ultimate bass queen a lover of art, music and all the rad things. She experts in diving in moshpits, cruising (skating) and chumming around spontaneously.

So here. Let's say hello...

'Sup Kerstin. How are you doing?
Hello! I’m really good. I’ve pretty much recovered from recent skateboard injuries, yay! I’m a little ill right now but that just means I get to drink more tea… SO it’s all good in the hood.

Right, I introduced you as a professional moshpit diver. Tell my viewers a little bit more about you and what you do.
Professional mosh pit diver?! This is really funny, because I just posted a video of me last year stage diving onto a Death From Above 1979 crowd in San Antonio, Texas. You know those Facebook memories thing? It was one of those!

Anyway, recently I’ve been super involved in the music scene in London. I’ve been in a band as a bassist for this surf/garage/punk band called Wannaballoon, and I regularly go to shows (mostly free shows, because times are hard these days).
I also skateboard with friends (big up NEFARIOUS crew!) – there was a short period where I did stop this year, but recently I am getting into it again. I’ve forgotten the rush I feel when I try a trick and it actually works.

As a young creative, what's it like being part of the music scene in general. You were in a band at one point, how was that?
Ahhh, honestly, I’m probably surrounded by emotionally wrecked and/or blessed set of individuals who are all passionate about music. It’s so nice going to shows with friends and playing with like-minded people and appreciates it as much as you do. There are many ways to connect with people, but this is one of my faves! 
Yes! I was in Wannaballoon. I played bass and sung too. It was really fun actually and fucking crazy sometimes. This one time, we headlined a show at The Good Ship, and the guitarist went nuts – tripped over the PA system and face planted the floor, straight up didn’t move for a few seconds. There’s nothing more confusing than that – do I keep playing or do I help him? (I kept playing). I’ll never forget the look on the drummer’s face when I turned around. After the show, I asked the guitarist what happened and he said he whited out. It’s kind of the funniest thing now that I look back on it.

You are aware that I am in love with your Bandcamp.  Any future shenanigans in making your own chill tunes?
MY BANDCAMP! Wow. Thank you! K-Heart is a project I’m going to pursue this year too. Currently it has got only 2 songs online, but I’m secretly making more tunes… I dunno, K-Heart’s something I keep very close to heart (ooh pun). It’s where I pour out feelings but in a cute and mean way. Honesty all the way! I’ve been using electronic elements too for more chill factors! It’s nice to have that aside all the craziness. So yes, there will be more chill tunes coming up!

Favourite sounds at the moment?
My oh my. I was hoping this wouldn’t come up. Only because I’m the most indecisive person ever. It’ll probably be quite random, but fuck it:

Guided By Voices – As We Go Up We Go Down
Tubeway Army & Gary Numan – Down In The Park
Beach House – The Hours
Captain Beefheart – I’m Glad
Cortex – 8-Oct-71
Cherrelle – I Didn’t Mean To Turn You On
Meatraffle – Acid in the 1940s
Deerhunter – Take Care
David Bowie – Soul Love

In your spare time, skating is what you do mostly. Where can we find you and your gang?
You can find the Nefarious gang anywhere there’s free pizza. We’re all pretty busy individuals, but when we do get together it’ll be at a skate premiere (recently we were at Emerica’s Made Chapter 2), skating Mile End, Stoke Newington, Frontside Gardens or Better Extreme skatepark, or generally street. Also we go to exhibitions, e.g. #MyStoryUK Instagram exhibition which empowered works of women. My friend/Nefa babe Viviana was in it! Free gluten free brownies and amazing drinks. Like I said we’re all over the place. Some of us went to Barcelona in May. One of us is in Vietnam teaching Art right now. (Hi, Rae! <3)

As someone that's young and full of different interests, do you have any future projects or plans that we should watch out for?
Yes! More skating for sure, because I just started again. Also, like I said I’m most likely joining a new band so there’s that. Also, of course pursuing K-Heart. More travelling too! I guess I’ll post about all this on my Instagram ☺.

Sweet! Any last words? :)

#asicssecretgig #jdunderground

Asics has launched the Chameleon pack and to celebrate they hosted a secret grime gig along with JD Sports in Mangle (formerly known as The Laundry) in Hackney. Rhys and I came to join the party. There's a range of amazing sounds, a handful of free beverages and many tasty gyozas.

The evening started with great sets by Melody Kane and Logan Sama. Emerging grime artist, AJ Tracey got the roof heated and the surprise headline act, GIGGS got the crowd real hyped — that just made the night. It was a very well-constructed event. The 600 guests that strolled through definitely had a good time.
