Yaya Lala Kids
Adriana Conde is the designer behind Yaya Lala, a Muswell Hill based web-store and label of children’s shoes handmade by a small group of skilled artisans in Portugal. The name relates to Brazilian colonial times when Yaya (“Iaia”) was used to refer to a Lady or a Miss. Lala is how a little girl named Clara now calls herself.
Translating “Yaya Lala” (or “Miss. Lala”) uncovers the brand’s essence: a refreshing balance between old and new permeated by loving inspirations. The original designs are created by Adriana, former architect and designer from Brazil who lives in Muswell Hill with her husband and daughter, Clara.
The shoes are for boys and girls ranging from 3 to 10 years. Beautifully crafted products, wonderful leather, refined use of colour and a sensation of returning to a period when time seemed to be more generous.
