Kelsey Lu’s wardrobe, especially when it comes to the garments that she wears onstage, can usually best be described as frothy: she can pull off mounds of Molly Goddard tulle or a baroque No Sesso gown with a sense of casual ease. For her performance at the Tate Modern in collaboration with Uniqlo and NTS Radio in London this past Friday, though, Lu took things in more of a streamlined direction. In lieu of a gown or something similarly over-the-top, Lu donned a classically slouchy suit.
The Kwaidan Editions set that Lu wore wasn’t totally traditional, though: Lu chose an acid green colorway, which her stylist Mindy Le Brock paired with some metallic gold Y/Project heels. In the photo’s accompanying Instagram caption, Lu thanked the Tate and NTS for letting her rework the setting of her performance last minute and Kara Walker for her “brave emotional art,” ending it all with an invocation that everyone can get behind: “To More Experimentation.” Lu certainly means that beyond just the domains of music, sound, and art—it can clearly be a guiding force for her otherworldly outfits, too.
