Betsey Johnson To Work With Target (Or H&M)?

| Filed under: Fashion Smashion


Following the trend for a smaller Fall 2009 presentation, Betsey Johnson will be unveiling her new collection at her 5,000-square-foot showroom, cutting costs by 50%. A typical Betsey Johnson runway show usually runs up a tab of $300,000 to $600,000.

In addition to cutting costs on the runway, the Betsey Johnson house alluded to a much more recession-friendly line.

CEO Chantal Bacon said, "Ms. Johnson is planning a limited-edition design collaboration with a retailer that will likely launch in the fall."

She didn't disclose with retailer exactly, but it's easy to assume it will be either H&M or Target, both of which have similar deals in the past with designers.

And it's expected that a lot more deals like this will be happening in the future!

    That would be AWESOME! Her line is super expensive, so it would be nice to buy her products at a more affordable price.

    She looks like a homeless bag lady except with really nice teeth.

    ugggh tony86 you're fucking janky. Bestey is amazing :) Idk about the whole targte thing though won't it sort of belittle her fashion cred.?!

  13. 13

    I hope it is Target and not H & M. There is no H & M near me and besides they remind me of Forver 21.

  14. 14

    I got a pair of the boots she did this season for Payless. They were pricey for Payless but obviously great priced for Betsey Johnson.. AND THEY ARE KILLER BOOTS!! They are actually booties… and they cost me $40 on sale…

    So perhaps she is doing more stuff with Payless and finally going public about it… since she never did for this season!

  15. 15

    ohemgee i hope its H&M..woo=)

    To me, she looks like a cross between Susanne Sommers and Tina turner and one of those muppets, the one with the long blonde hair, i don't know its name, but youuuuu know what i'm talking about.Does anyone else see this?

  25. 25

    Are you sure she doesn't design clothes for Kmart??? Hide the bra straps honey.

    By the way, that's Chantal Bacon in the picture with her… I was an intern there :) Love them

  32. 32

    Um this isnt a competition on how good she looks. The clothes which she designs are very cool and i dont see anything bad with them becoming more affordable!

  33. 33

    Anyone else think she looks like a white Tina Turner in this photo?

  34. 34


  35. 35

    at first I was convinced she's suzanne sommers,then , I said,no, she's Linda Hogan or tina turner-white version. Whatever- who cares? Dumb blonde-nothing special

  36. 36

    hi neck!

    FUCK U u dumb arsed bitch! DONT swear at me!!! Im ffrom sydney so i dont know who she is 2 u but 2 me she looks like a mix between Donatela Versace and Tina Turner and has a frizzy cheap lady gaga knock off wig.

    SUCK ON THAT BIATCH!!! and p.s Aqua Girl??????? either ure in love with Adrian grenier aka aqua boy or ure just some retarded retard!! and p.s i dont appreciate fan mail but if u insist send it to internation mail! WHORE!

  38. 38

    What's that thing on her head?

  39. 39

    She has beautiful teeth. I can see every last one of them.

  40. 40

    Betsey Johnson is a total bi-atch. i met her once when i was 14 or so, in one of her stores. i was a pretty big girl back then (a size 16). she gave me the evil eye and -laughed- when i asked the countergirl if there was a possibility of them having my size. what a C yoU Next Tuesday.

  41. 41

    You all can go suck it!! Betsey Johnson has been around for decades, and is the most fabulous, eccentric person in the fashion industry that I have ever met… If she designed a recession line (priced even lower than her Betseyville line!!) I would literally be in heaven!!!

  42. 42

    Re: porodika

    Dumb blond? Then how come SHE'S making the millions and you aren't? Yeah. Ok. Thought so. Go back to shuffling papers and using only one portion of your brain. Fuckface.

    Re: hollyjaner

    Aren't all of them in the business bitchy though… or strange.

  44. 44

    Ok so H&M would be cool. Target would be ok. But she better not stoop down to Kohls. Vera Wang did that and that was just stupid.

  45. 45

    I hope it's H & M cause we don't have Target in Canada. I love Betsey Johnson. I got married in one of her dresses I bought in her boutique in Soho. It was hot off the runway.

  46. 46

    no way it will be at H&M they have used karl lagerfeld, viktor& rolf, and most recently comme des garcons… she is not in the right market bracket definItely Target

  47. 47

    "recession-friendly line", you mean cheap and ugly??????????????????????????

  48. 48

    Awesome - hopefully an accessories line? I love her jewelry but it is way too overpriced for simple costume jewelry. I bought a $300 bag of hers its cute but part of it is pleather!!

  49. 49

    I hope its target because there are no H&M's in my state and I love betsey johnson

  50. 50

    i would pee my pants!!

  51. 51


  52. 52

    PEREZ! Can we do a "seperated at birth"???? with Suzanne Somers and Betsey!????

  53. 53

    H&M PLEASE!!

  54. 54

    Well, I think it's about time that some of these designers come down to earth.

    I LOVE designer clothes, but you know the industry is screwy when they think that J Crew or Theory are affordable "low end" clothes. I don't know, but $180 for a dress and $300 for a handbag aren't very affordable to me.

    There is no reason why good, quality design shouldn't be available to the masses. It's easy to design something hot when you have the most beautiful, sumptuous fabrics and expensive techniques at your disposal. It's much harder to design for real-world pocketbooks and still make something that looks and fits great.

    A general comment about the economy:
    I am very upset about all of these economic problems, but if the economy has to be in trouble I'm glad it's also affecting those at the top. Maybe now they won't look down on everyone else and will have a little more modesty and caring towards their fellow man. People tend to develop empathy when they realize that they, too, are not infallible but in fact are vulnerable. So that might be something good to come out of all of these problems.

    Also, has anyone else noticed that the USA started having all of these problems after 9-11? That's when the country really started going down the tubes.

  55. 55

    making a move with target would be the smarter choice, being that H&M is limited on where there stores are, compared to target having over 1680 stores nationwide. the line might be a bit cheaper as far as price is concerned with target, but she'd make more of a killing since you can also purchase GO international(most likely the line it will be produced on) products on target's website, whereas on H&M's you cannot.

  56. 56

    I love the SHIT out of betsey J, however, I never understood her bangs??

  57. 57

    What are YOU trying to pull? I think I recognize Tina Turner when I see her.

  58. 58

    Who in their right mind would buy anything this ho tell them is a beauty product? That hair if you can call it hair is enough to gag a maggot. Tina Turner had that style 10 years ago WHEN IT WAS COOL

  59. 59

    Gotta love Betsey, even though she looks like Suzanne Summers on crack. Anyway, anyone heard any news of Alexander McQueen doing a line for target?

  60. 60

    Anyone else reminded of Linda Hogan when you look at this pic?
    Like all of it, the face, blonde hair, no money…:P

  61. 61

    ughh i'm not looking forward to her line being so readily available and cheaper, i mean, that sucks that i pay $100+ for one of her bags and now just anyone at any given moment could be carrying her bag that they got for a super deal at Target. i hate when everyone has the same stuff.
