Lala BerlinBerlin Catwalk Highlights F/W 2012/13

Lala Berlin F/W 2012/13 catwalk show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin / 18.01.2012

The first model already proves that floor length skirts may be showstopping, but also for the wrong reasons: She trips, mutters a blasé “Fuck“, gets on with it. This brings us to the point: Whatever Lala Berlin shows, the collection always has a touch of rock’n’roll. The patterns and materials are wild, daring, maybe even questionable
– but in a way that’s actually spot on. Though, getting it right in this case means being slightly off kilter – too many patterns and incongruous colors. Nevertheless herein also lies the strength of the collection – it’s not here to please, but provoke and question common taste. True, I can’t make up my mind. Another highlight is the element of surprise – you never know what’s coming next. What am I looking for? A common theme! Where do I find it? There isn’t one. It occurs to me that this is refreshing, and most importantly: really good.
