Design by Leyla Piedayesh for LALA Berlin This is a unique piece from LALA Berlin's collection archive. Size S (the wide cut also fits a size M or L) Material: 100% silk
Inspired by Leyla Piedayesh’s Iranian origin, the royal blue caftan dress “Dress Nebula” is shown in a modern adaptation of the iconic Cinderella dress. The minimalist silhouette and deep back cut-out ensure a dramatic appearance. The flowing Duchess silk gives the unique piece from the “Midnight in Berlin” collection by lala Berlin a sublime lightness.
Midnight in Berlin – A collection inspired by Cinderella
Strong, modern, and self-confident women, who are able to dream and find the time to escape into their own little fairy tale world. Women who have both feet on the ground but at the same time are willing to let go of everything and enjoy the moment while it lasts. This contrast inspired Leyla Piedayesh for her evening collection. It is the first time after the launch of the brand lala Berlin ten years ago that the designer is introducing a line purely focused on evening gowns.
The collection consists of nine dresses that are to die for. Floor-length, clean-cut gowns with a layering look have been decorated with hand-made Swarovski Crystals covered in georgette. The label stands for an urban, easy-going, and rock chic attitude. This state of mind is being represented through cropped-top-elements, trouser-layering as well as abstract birds, mice, and shoes which have been embroidered and abstractly placed upon the garments.
The chosen materials span from Crépe Marocain, Double-Crépe, Organza and Chiffon to Georgette and Brocat.
The colour theme of the collection represents Cinderella’s metamorphosis at midnight and consists of different shades of blue: light-blue, Cinderella-blue, royal blue up to black. The designs include fairy-tale princess dresses as well as kaftans inspired by oriental clothing, lala Berlin’s trademark. The eclectic of the label gives the designer the freedom to embed kaftans in her evening line. Long sleeve-dresses, long v-necks in front and in the back as well as closed necklines – all those different styles are part of the exclusive evening gown collection.
