The Sea Point Promenade is Skinny laMinx designer Heather Moore’s favourite place to take a walk because there is so much to see there. Waves and surfers, paragliders and windblown trees, pram pushers and wheelchairs, dogs and joggers, make up a passing parade that’s one of the enduring pleasures of Cape Town life, and one that’s free to all.
One day, after years of walking, driving, cycling, and once even rollerblading past the mosaic wall of the public bathrooms on Beach Road, Heather stopped to photograph and sketch the meandering design, looking at it properly for the first time, although she’d admired it for ages.
The result of taking the time to slow down and look closely at this Mid-century mosaic is the PROMENADE knitted king-size throw, which, in collaboration with VISI magazine, has been produced in black and white in a limited edition of just 21 items.
Made in South Africa. 100% cotton knit. Cold hand wash with mild detergent, and sun dry.
