The Space’s New Boutique: Now Showing

WORDS Mary Garner IMAGES Tony Christie

Local design brand The Space has launched a new store called Now Showing at 109 Waterkant Street in Cape Town.

The interiors are minimalist, featuring only mirrors, concrete and whitewashed walls, making the space highly adaptable for different offerings, including showcasing the collections of local designers such as Colleen Eitzen, Amanda Laird-Cherry, Leigh Schubert and ALC.

In order to rejuvenate the store concept and what is on offer, Now Showing will be reinvented every six to eight weeks. You will be able to shop at the venue, participate in after-hours events and attend takeovers by leading designers.

The Dark Side is the first themed curated collaborative concept taking place in the space until 28 October 2017, celebrating all things eerie and enigmatic, from charcoal water and inky black pasta to decadent dark chocolate.

Event Dates at Now Showing:

The Dark Side: Until 28 October 2017

The Light Side: 2 November 2017 – 27 January 2018

• Apartment Waterkant featuring Egg Design: 1 February – 31 March 2018
