Stand Out Destinations: Barbican Conservatory

Stand Out Destinations: Barbican Conservatory

For the second instalment of our Stand Out Destinations campaign at the Barbican we headed inside to shoot in and around the iconic conservatory. Opened in 1984 the Barbican is the second biggest conservatory in London after Kew Gardens’ Princess of Wales Conservatory. It houses over 1,500 species of plants, some of which are endangered in their native habitat with more additions happening all the time so every time you visit is a unique experience and different from the last. A must see in London.

The Barbican has to be seen to be believed. Inside its glass walls, the room is bursting with vibrant and exotic plants such as palm trees, cacti, succulents and coffee plants to name a few. It is a sight not to be missed with plants and trees from all around the world from the likes of South Africa and Brazil so it’s like taking a trip out of England whilst you’re walking around the 23,000 square feet conservatory. Not only does it house an array of tropical plants and trees it also has a wide range of tropical fish from places like Japan and America, giving them a safe home to thrive amongst the tropical surroundings.

With this as our backdrop we shot a selection of our summer offering. With graphic tees and shorts from Dsquared2 and colourful prints from Billionaire Boys Club and PS Paul Smith there is something to brighten up your wardrobe this summer. For her we have bold splashes of colour from Love Moschino and colourful tees from Tommy Jeans that are perfect to match with lightweight summer denim. We’re here to give you the ultimate summer inspiration so take a look at all the outfits in our full Stand Out Destinations video here
