Berlin Dispatch: Things Heat Up In Lala Land-------
The mothers of Berlin’s coolest girls should send thank-you notes to Lala Berlin designer Leyla Piedayesh for making warm woollies the most coveted item on the city’s fashion scene. In her very first catwalk show at Bebelplatz, Berlin Fashion Week’s main venue, Piedayesh sent models slinking down the runway in loosely woven sweaters worn with S&M-inspired stilettos, silk camisoles that slid coyly off shoulders, leather leggings and little dresses with Klimt-esque patterns. The Iranian-born designer played peekaboo with the completely sheer blue jumpsuit that she topped with a black blazer, lined in a matching fabric. Whether the model was warm enough remains unclear, but Berlin Fashion week is definitely hotter with Lala Berlin on the scene.
