With the Donna Karan Spring 2012 collection, the famous American designer ventures away from the simple sophistication presented in the DKNY Spring 2012 show. Instead, this collection is full of tribal prints and earthy tones.
The show's notes explain how Karan has traveled to Haiti twice in the past year to get a fuller understanding of the post-earthquake state of living -- since these adventures, her "two worlds come together." The influence of that lifestyle can certainly be seen in the Donna Karan Spring 2012 collection. The brushstroke prints that adorn much of the line are inspired by Haitian artist Philippe Dodar.
However, always maintaining her penchant for designing downtown and edgy clothing, the body conscious, one-shouldered dresses are stunning works of art. The Donna Karan Spring 2012 collection is sultry, intriguing and impossible to stop lusting over.
