Donna Karan’s Spring 2012 presentation took place on Monday during New York Fashion Week.

I wasn’t prepared for the tribal explosion, but I loved the unpredictable change of direction.

The wearable tribal pieces were inspired by Donna’s recent trips to Haiti.

Whilst the influences were strong, the designer still incorporated her signature draping on several pieces.

We saw earthy rustic colours, alongside vibrant purple and lemon.

The strong prints and paint splashed prints made a strong breath-taking impact as they hit the runway.

Key accessories included wooden statement necklaces, fold-over python clutches, wooden clutches and fringed bracelets.
