Anisa Mpungwe – the name should ring a bell, no? In 2008 she scooped the ELLE New Talent Design Award with Mr Price (now the ELLE Rising Star Design Award in association with Mr Price, check it out here and two years later she was invited to showcase at Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week in New York as part of the Arise Magazine Collective. And that’s just her getting warmed up. Last year the SA designer opened her first flagship store in the Maboneng Precinct in Johannesburg. And now she’s teamed up with Mr P to create a limited edition range for our favourite SA retailer.
As expected – it’s bold, brave and bang on trend. Love the sports-inspired edge and colour blocking, love the borrowing from the twenties with drop-waisted skirts and say hi to the late eighties street style in there too.
For me – that loose fitting zipper jacket is simply a must-have and the jacquard shorts at the top of the page– I’ll take those too.
Anisa’s range is available at selected Mr Price stores and if you can’t get there quick enough, shop the range here online.
