The Indonesian-Swiss model is one to look for if you’re active on Instagram. Her unique face has probably dominated your Insta, either in Explore or from your friends’ regram posts. She speaks a bit of French, Indonesian, and English. First being viral as she was close with Axel Thomas. But that was then, currently Carissa Perusset is busy exploring the literature world. In August, she will launch her first book about poems and proses. Fashion wise, she takes the comfy angle in choosing her #ootd. At a glance, Carissa’s style is uniquely versatile. Give her a dress and she’ll perfectly personify elegance, give her a t-shirt and she simply immerses with the current street look trend.
Judging by your feed, we can assume that you’re into photography. Is that what you love besides modeling? Care to share?
“Besides modeling, I’m publishing a book and I’ve just been busy with that. It’s a poetry and prose book, I’m just busy with organizing the launching, getting into print and everything.”
That’s interesting, rarely do we see millennials go deep into poems. When’s the launch?
“The official launching will be on August 5th.”
Congrats! Now let’s talk about fashion. What do you look in a fashion brand?
“First is comfort, second if it goes with a lot of things in my wardrobe that you can basically mix and match with everything, you can wear it more than once, like you can wear than just one outfit.”
Your favorite fashion statement?
“Little bit of spark, I don’t know. I wear simple accessories, I really like gold because it goes really nice with everything. So I think, put a little bit of shiny things on your outfit really goes a long way.”
We noticed that you took a gap year and that you’re gearing up to enrol in uni. What major do you want to pursue?
“I kinda wanna study film, but I also wanna study literature, and maybe while I’m studying I still want to model a little bit.”
Your current wish?
“I love to have a friend to travel to go to interesting places.”
