Donna Karan Resort 2012

For Resort 2012, Donna Karan presents an ingenious red, black and white collection. I love the striking combination of these three colours, they go so well together. The pieces incorporate a cotton spandex fabric blend, that's comfortable and stretchy. There's a play on proportion with fitted tops and flair A-line skirts. Motorcycle gear got a chic overhaul with sporty racer jackets, zip-up coats and colour-blocked panels. Party dresses are effortless and stylish - all you need are a pair of heels and you're ready to go.

 There are body-con dresses that flatter slimmer figures, while fuller skirts hide that extra bit of winter weight. I like the effect of the last skirt on the right, with the white underlay visible from underneath the black.

Donna took a modern approach to the 50's style dress with interesting structural designs. I love the ethereal ivory tulle stripe dress with origami pleating.

The draped column gowns are such classic pieces. A stunning strapless black mermaid gown completed the sophisticated collection.
