Skinny laMinx just launched Paradise Is Here, a fresh new collection of handmade fabrics in celebration of the resilient plants that grow in concrete jungles around the world.
Inspired by a recent trip to Tokyo designer Heather Moore began noticing and appreciating the plants in her own city more than ever, and this collection is an extension of her refreshed love for the energy and exuberance of city plants.
The Paradise Is Here collection consists of four new fabric designs. Zig Zag is inspired by palm leafs poking through a fence, almost like they are curious about what is on the other side. Palmetto is Heather’s take on fanning leafs, while Airborne represents falling leafs and journeying seeds against a city-like grid. Fonds is epilepsy-inducing at first glance, but a shift in perspective reveals the shadow play of palm leafs.
Visit the Skinny laMinx storefront and studio at 201 Bree Street, Cape Town from Monday to Friday 10am – 5pm and Saturday 9am – 1pm, or head to the website for some online shopping.
