Betsey Johnson: Video Queen

-------

Betsey Johnson celebrated her 30th anniversary in the business last year, and she’s more relevant today than she’s been in ages. If you’re anything like us, you’ve got your eye on a few pieces from the designer’s new collaboration with Opening Ceremony, Betsey Johnson Archive. Now we’ve learned that she’s following up last season’s Betsey Crocker flick (which seems pretty prescient in light of the recent release of Julie & Julia) with the launch today of archival show footage going back three decades. Think the neon brights, big shoulders, and Patrick Nagel-esque styling all over the Fall runways look new? Click play: Johnson was working them back in 1979. See the videos here, but be warned: They’re addictive—and inspiring.
