Rolling displays are among the latest in innovative retail concepts, and The Space is bringing one to De Waterkant, Cape Town.
South African retail collaboration The Space has opened the doors to their first out of mall experience, housing their signature fashion collections – Colleen Eitzen, Amanda Laird-Cherry, Leigh Schubert and ALC – and this time, a little more. In a regularly transforming shopping concept they’re calling Now Showing, The Space is turning their retail experience on its head.
Now Showing will see the second floor of 109 Waterkant street in central Cape Town reinvented every six to eight weeks, with every overhaul ushering in a new concept encompassing shopping and insightful after-hours events for guests, as well as takeovers by leading designers. This is a first for the brand and adds a new layer to Cape Town’s design experience.
The first floor remains a beautiful and familiar fashion experience enclosed in a minimal white space delineated by large mirrors and concrete display structures, presenting the latest from The Space’s designers. Upstairs, Now Showing’s debut curation, The Dark Side, is on full display until the 28th of October. The bold, the bizarre, and the cryptic come together to form a dark fantasy you can take home with you, from charcoal water and inky pasta to black skull candles and an array of dark tinctures. Take it all in while enjoying a wine tasting with Lammershoek Wines’ Schalk Opperman, held weekly and capped at an intimate attendance of 20.
Now Showing is open at 109 Waterkant Street:
- The Dark Side: 31 August – 28 October
- The Light Side: 2 November – 27 January
- Apartment Waterkant featuring Egg Design: 1 February – 31 March
- Wine Tastings by Lammershoek: 7, 14, 21, 28 September and 5,12,19 and 26 October
