The Betsey Johnson label is all about attitude and for Spring / Summer 2012, the iconic New York designer celebrated the female form with a fresh vitality and insatiable appetite for all things youthful, fun and sexy.
Pieces were slightly sheer, flirty and playful. Bra straps went peak-a-boo under pretty party dresses; while hemlines went from racy thigh-high to floor length. Johnson’s signature prom dress also appeared – worn strapless with a sweetheart neckline and frothy skirt. Each look struck the perfect balance between fitted and loose. Tops fell off the shoulder; lace-up corsets clinched in the waist; chic leather jackets in hot pink, black and white were trimmed with ruffles.
Yet it was the accessories that further amped up the volume and took the collection into overdrive. Fingerless gloves, lightning bolt earrings and chunky statement necklaces combined for a mesmerising runway presentation. Not to mention the pert hats accentuated with flowers, sheer knee high socks worn with sky-high heels and that unmistakable bombshell hair.
When Johnson did take to the stage, she performed her signature cartwheel and landed in a split with her arms raised boldly in the air. Another epic runway collection unlike any other…
