A Day at the Botanical Gardens in Berlin With Nike Jane

04-04-2014

I hope you're all well and enjoying the first sunny days of Spring! In Berlin it's still quite grey and cloudy now and then - but that's ok because I carry my own sunshine with me wherever I go... The MCM's First Lady Tambourine is one of my favourite bags ever and it looks just like a pretty Summer sun.


For anyone travelling to Berlin in the next few months, let me tell you something -  there's one spot you should visit before you leave our city: The Botanical Gardens. It's not a very touristic spot, ins tead it is an oasis of peace. You'll love it, trust me!

Back to my beloved tambourine... At first I wondered how to style it - yellow isn't the easiest colour to work with. How wrong was I? Yellow is the perfect match for just about... everything! Who knew?

And here's the beauty in full effect:

Handcrafted with original cow hide body & trim, the iconic First Lady Collection boasts a minimalist aesthetic refined by exuberant tones, deep hues & vibrant shades. Boasting a voluminous natural canvas interior with gilded brass hardwares, the structured shapes are designed as daytime handbags for convenient & practical use. The classy First Lady Collection befits virtually any attire, affording style versatility for style mavens & tastemakers alike.

The amazing Berlin-Dahlem Botanical Gardens and Botanical Museum is a botanical garden in with an area of 43 hectares and around 22,000 different plant species - which means: every flower you can imagine! The garden was constructed between 1897 and 1910, under the guidance of architect Adolf Engler in order to present exotic plants returned from German colonies.

Today, the garden is part of the Free University of Berlin. The Botanical Museum (Botanisches Museum), with a large herbarium (Herbarium Berolinense) and a large scientific library, is attached to the garden.

The complex consists of several buildings and glass-houses, such as the Cactus Pavilion and the Pavilion Victoria (which features a collection of orchids, carnivorous plants and giant white water lily Victoria-Seerosen). The total area of all glass-houses is 6,000 m². The garden's open-air areas, sorted by geographical origin, have a total area of 13 hectares. The garden's arboretum is 14 hectares.

The best-known part of the garden is the Great Pavilion (Das Große Tropenhaus). The temperature inside is maintained at 30 °C and air humidity is kept high. Among the many tropical plants it hosts a giant bamboo.


Go there and get happy - it's such an amazing and calm place, promise. 
Lots of love, 
Nike Jane
