Summertime fabulous is the only term I can find to describe the hot designs that had the runway burning up today at Donna Karan’s Spring/Summer 2012 show. A substantial deal of color was the hype at today’s show, as all the models strutted down the concrete runway topped by wide-brimmed hats, for the extreme summer heat. The collection seemed to focus on sexy feminine looks, perfect for New York’s average woman on the go. Opening the collection was a variety of minimal looks featuring neutral tones like black and navy blue, some in the shape of a blazer-dress which interestingly seemed fit for the professional along with some draping silhouettes free in their flow. After this, came the mega-surge of color and print. A pants suit completely covered in blue and red flowers, was accessorized with a bag, hat and stunner pumps all plastered with the same print and boasting loads of attitude. Lightening up a bit, Donna threw in some shorts, summer windbreakers, horizontally striped ensembles, then tweed suit for the perfect femme. What seemed to be a mixture of animal prints covered the runway in green, transitioning to black, then to sheer looks in desert tones. Absolutely stunning! I’m sure that stylish women all of the world are ready to take this collection by storm. Check out my favorite looks from the show, as well as the entire collection below.
