One of the trends I noticed on the Spring 2012 runways, especially in Milan, is what I will officially dub "Punk-Deco." Art Deco era silhouettes and architectural-inspired graphic designs were everywhere this season, and designers freshened them up with a slightly punk-rock edge. Pull your hair back into a tight bun, smudge on some dramatic, smokey eye make-up, mix and match your choice of the pieces below-- and you just might be mistaken for a model at Gucci, Etro, or Roberto Cavalli!
