I’m a huge fan of Mr Price’s capsule collections by local designers, following in the footsteps of H&M and Target abroad. Not only is the exposure opportunity for South Africa’s design talent immense, it offers MRP punters like me high fashion at affordable prices – always a win. The latest collection by Anisa Mpungwe is fun, mostly monochromatic with a few abstract pieces. The midi dress, abstract printed boxy jacket and abstract printed t-shirt are some of my favourites. Here’s a look at the collection…
Here’s what Mr. Price had to say about Anisa’s Project Range:
“Anisa’s journey with Mr Price began in 2008 when she won the Elle New Talent Design Award in association with Mr Price. Since winning this prestigious award, Anisa’s career has gone from strength to strength. We are proud to present her exciting new range, exclusive to Mr Price.
Featuring a powerful colour combination of black, white and yellow, Anisa’s range comprises structured separates with graphic prints. Sleek and soft fabrications make for a tactile range with a sporting edge. The cuts are similar to Loin Cloth and Ashes designs but they’ve been simplified. Anisa wanted the pieces to be easy to wear and effortless to match. Drawing inspiration from late eighties street-style, the range includes a bold letter-print top and a loose-fitting zipper jacket. You’ll also spot a nod to the twenties with drop-waisted skirts.”
