So after an amazing five day stay in Berlin, I felt compelled to write a little article not just on the fashion, but also the sights, the food and the outstanding party culture. From the massive spans of graffiti and art work that decorate this booming city to the uber cool chilled attitude of pretty much everybody around this place has stolen my heart.
We walked the length and breath of the Berlin wall trying to capture the stunning, moving and sometimes comical graffiti that now decorates the once negative symbol of oppression. From checkpoint Charlie to the many mythical creatures painted I can’t think of a better way to embrace your country’s history, no matter how dark it may be.
The options for food were endless and cheap from Asian cuisine, Italian to authentic German grub we were spoilt for choice. It’s a glutens dream with delicious food stalls on every corner, and being able to buy a beer in any shop and walk around the streets with it freely was the icing on the culinary cake and just added to the laid back vibe of the city.
One of my favourite parts was of course the tourist stuff from museums to famous landmarks Berlin is brimming with things to do and see and is totally steeped in history.
Even one of its most famous nightclubs, Berghain, is a landmark in itself. This exclusive spot is notoriously difficult to get into and prides itself on privacy. The club was like nothing iv ever seen before. So massive and industrial with an amazing sound system. I could see why they wanted to keep it so illusive, because every perslon there was there for the love of the music and to party not to get theyr picture taken or to be seen, and that was one of the most refreshing things to me.
I picked up a few little unique gems for my collection too, Berlin is all about one of a kind pieces. I found some gorgeous vintage spots and some trendy street markets. My favourite buy has to be this stunning bracelet from local designer August, with only three of them ever made I can rest assured that nobody will turn up with the same one.
Strangely Berlin almost felt like home, I immediately felt comfortable and free. The people, the city and the vibes were so fresh and exciting its not hard to see see that this is a city on the rise. I can’t wait to visit it again as I feel iv only scratched the surface on this breathtaking city. x
