New York Fashion Week - Look 3, Safari

To any of you who bought into the safari trend during the summer, well done - your money was well spent. 
Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan all rolled over the look into their SS12 collections - so it might be worth buying that leopard print shirt after all!

Michael Kors shows make me laugh - all these perfectly manicured highlight-honeyed wives, with their perfect nails and white jeans, watching a collection that they would never really dare to wear (at least not the whole outfit).  For spring Kors gave us an African adventure filled with safari-inspired kaftans, linen cargo jackets and silk anoraks - mixed up with some cashmere.  You'll need khakis and some sand colours to get this look, simples.  Perfect for the busy working woman, rather than the ladies who lunch...

Donna Karan has been travelling to and from Haiti this past year and her spring collection stems from this personal and creative passion for the island. The visual result of which was a heavily referenced tribal collection re-worked on to urban, slinky clothes.  Not a khaki coloured parker in sight - what a relief!

Finally, the collection that just keeps going... from Proenza Schouler.  They did some safari stuff too - and it's ace.  Using a more traditional print, they used their efforts on the fresh designs and use of the animal print.
