Susanna Lau's view of New York S/S 2012

There was one point at the Donna Karan show when I felt I was at a charity concert what with the soundtrack and indeed, the roots of this collection was born from a visit to Haiti, post-earthquake. Visibly, people will read into it as Africana but beyond the surface detailing, it's all very much business as usual at Karan with most of the collection imbued with her recognisable pragmatic traits.
