Betsey Johnson Opens the Archives


When I was in high school, they opened a Betsey Johnson store at the local outlet mall, and I was super excited. My mom would pretty much set me loose in there, letting me stock up on the previous season’s markdowns. It was heaven. I remember one particular dress with raspberry buttons–why did I ever get rid of that thing?

Well, maybe that dress and I will be reunited because WWD reports that the designer will release a capsule collection of her greatest hits. Johnson is joining up with Humberto Leon and Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony to open the archives. The result will be a 35-piece collection of authentic re-issues. Nice.

The capsule collection will hit Opening Ceremony stores in LA and NYC this fall, along with a few Betsey Johnson locations.
