Strawberries, pineapples, and cherries. Oh My! Betsey Johnson’s summer collection is sure to have your mouth watering with tropical fruit inspired pieces. Known for her outrageous runway shows, nostalgic handbags, and boutiques that are all pink, Betsey Johnson‘s summer lineup refused to disappoint.
Pietro Lolita in Soho, which is also known for all things pink was the perfect venue for the press release. This event was filled with summer vibes from the moment I walked in. Mannequins were sporting pink wigs and the were models dressed in summer frills. The swimsuit line up is giving an old school sense of the 1950s with pin up style one piece suits, high waist bottoms, and bandeau tops. While Betsey is known for bold floral prints and stripes, she seems to be elevating the classic prints by adding something sweet. The classic gingham and stripe pattern have now been embossed with jeweled cherries on the shoes and an all over lip print added to the stripes. Mixing patterns is quite the challenge with fashion but, you can save yourself the headache by having Betsey Johnson in your wardrobe this summer.
This collection doesn’t stop at patterns. The event featured an array of nostalgic handbags with the intention of making our mouths water. Count on Betsey to turn your favorite summer treats into a go to summer handbag. A crab and cherry shaped leather zip clutch are sure to become your vacation essentials. The classic summer straw bag has now been transformed into a pineapple and strawberry shaped wristlet that can also be worn as a cross body. You can now enjoy a firecracker popsicle without the mess with Betsey’s leather popsicle gold chain cross body bag. Mr. Softee might owe you a tip! Take a tip from me and do not skip out on this collection.
Overall, Betsey Johnson’s press event was the ultimate introduction to the season’s new trends. It had everything you could want in a tropical getaway without the travel headache. If you’re looking to amplify your style this summer, look no further than Betsey Johnson’s new summer lineup.
