Donna Karan’s latest offerings were inspired by her trip to Haiti. “After a year traveling in Haiti, my two worlds come together: translating the vibrancy of tribal elements into sophisticated, sexy urban clothes,” the designer said of her Spring 2012 collection. The result? Strong silhouettes punched up with pops of tangerine, earthy statement necklaces and bold brushstroke prints dreamed up by Haitian artist Philippe Dodard. Shoulders also took center stage, because, as Karan told us, “You never gain weight on your shoulders. Enjoy your body!” Click through the gallery to see our favorite looks!
