Angeleno Magazine: The Radar Fashion


Humbert Humberts, beware: This Lolita gets exactly what she wants… like imported lingerie, far-out Danish accessories and high-end sex toys from London. New lingerie boutique Whatever Lola Wants, opened by former Playboy stylist Lola Elmo. Houses some of her favorite things, all offset by a lacquered pink floor, navy faux-stringray tufted walls and white-wood accessories. The boudoir-vibed spot, decorated by Vegas designer Alison Gramenos, stocked a limited number of pieces from hard-to-find European designers like Fifi Chachnil. “It makes more of a statement that way,” says the owner. “Each piece stands out. I didn’t want the store cluttered or filled to the brim.” Femmes can have their pick of accessories, bags and shoes from local vegan label Mink, while jewelry, eyewear and other men’s accessories will give the guys something else to do besides gawk at the goods. 834 N. La Brea Ave., L.A., 323-461-3155 or www.whateverlolawants.com. –Alexia Johnson
