After showing off a softer, more sensual side with the DKNY Pre-Fall collection, the Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2012 collection demonstrates Ms. Karan's versatility and ability to go from one extreme to another.

The American designer told Fashionologie.com that she describes this collection in one word: "Wo-man." She added, "We have to remember there is a man in every woman."

Thus, the collection is full of masculine-inspired pieces like strong, structured jackets with the most exaggerated shoulders to appear on the runway since Balmain brought the look back into full force a few seasons ago.

However, keeping up with the feminine side of the label, the Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2012 collection also features beautifully soft pleated dresses that are paired with cropped leather jackets, creating a stunning harmony between masculine and feminine dressing.
