This winter MRP is taking athleisure to new heights with the dance-inspired PROJECT collection, designed in-house by MRP. In this limited edition range, mixed fabrics and a muted palette take centre stage, while mesmerising silhouettes capture movement. I got the chance to have some hands-on time with this stunning new collection so you know what to expect before adding these items to your basket. Here are some of my favourite picks from the new MRP Project dance-inspired collection:

Tulle is king

MRP PROJECT dance winter 2017

Black Tulle Skirt – R139.99, MRP | Asymmetric ‘Ballet Company’ T-Shirt – R79.99, MRP | Pink Tiered Tulle Skirt – R139.99, MRP | Velvet Bodysuit – R79.99, MRP.

Delicate tulle is set to be all the rage this winter so make sure you invest in at least one tulle piece. I love these tulle skirts from the MRP PROJECT collection because they’re super versatile. Dress them up with a soft, velvet tank top (also very on trend right now) and high heels for a wedding or dress them down with a T-shirt and sneakers for a pretty yet edgy day-time look. I got my hands on the pink tulle skirt and love that while it’s pretty and romantic it also shows a little bit of skin thanks to the mini skirt with tulle overlay design.

Oversized cover-ups and edgy bottoms

MRP PROJECT dance winter 2017

Black Oversized Hoodie – R229.99, MRP | Charcoal leggings – R89.99, MRP | Black Wrap Top – R89.99, MRP | Black trainers – R169.99, MRP.

I love that the collection also has some edge to it and I can’t get enough of the combination over over-sized cover-ups paired with more revealing elements. I love this black PROJECT Oversized Hoodie with its generous hood and super soft feel. It’s the ultimate in sporty comfort and looks great when paired with yoga leggings and a sports bra or even with your tightest skinny jeans and high heels. Another firm favourite is this pair of charcoal PROJECT wrap-tie leggings. Also super versatile, they’ll keep you oh-so-comfy whether you’re popping to a yoga class or the shops to grab some milk.

Soften it with ruffles and lace

White Lace Ruffle Top - R89.99, MRP | Black Lace Ruffle Top - R89.99, MRP.

White Lace Ruffle Top – R89.99, MRP | Black Lace Ruffle Top – R89.99, MRP.

If you’re going for an edgier look this season then don’t forget to soften it with some well-placed ruffles and lace. I love this ruffle blouse and ruffle T-shirt from the new PROJECT collection. The white PROJECT lace ruffle T-shirt pairs beautifully with skirts or jeans for a girly daytime look while the black PROJECT ruffle blouse is the ultimate must-have for a night on the town. I’ve added the white lace ruffle T-shirt to my wardrobe and love how soft if feels against my skin. The T-shirt offers a feminine touch but still gives you a fashion foward edge thanks to the asymetrical design of the ruffle detail.

The new PROJECT range is now available at select MRP stores and online at mrp.com Look out for more PROJECT ranges dropping throughout the year.
