Betsey Johnson Launches New Activewear Line

Betsey Johnson is slated to launch a collection of activewear inspired by her fall 2013 runway show, which featured 20 models doing crunches and push-ups in sport-wear.

The energetic 72-year-old designer is making a fashion rebound after declaring bankruptcy and closing her brick-and-mortar stores two years ago.


Johnson told WWD that her new activewear collection, which will include a mix of high-stretch nylon spandex leggings and moisture-wicking T-shirts, will be “the perfect mix of performance, prettiness and punk.” Of course, no design of Betsey’s would be complete without funky detailing like jacquard patterns, corset piping and bows.

The collection will be priced between $49 and $120. Betsey Johnson’s activewear collection will be sold in-store and online at Nordstrom and Macy’s.
