Step­ping into Frank Leder’s 2.Stock store in Char­lot­ten­burg is like en­ter­ing a hall of cu­riosi­ties. Glass jars of pre­served straw­ber­ries, pears, and beans piled up on a ta­ble, old shelves show­cas­ing Leder's own cos­metic line, and an old glass case in the middle of the show­room con­tain­ing a large bun­dle of horse­hair, which the de­signer uses to pad his win­ter jack­ets, are quirky and evoca­tive re­minders of times gone by. Leder's fash­ion cre­ations fo­cus on high- qual­ity and tex­tured ma­te­ri­als, with fig­ure-hug­ging cot­ton shirts, woolen and felt pants, vests, and pullovers. Take a look at the store's web­site, pop­u­lated by un­usual char­ac­ters mod­el­ing his clothes – from chim­ney sweep­ers to hun­ters and WWII POWs – and you'll get a feel for the store's con­cept.
