NEW YORK — With a new sportswear line and a home in Mexico to match, Betsey Johnson is getting used to a casual lifestyle.
After 40 years in the dress business, the designer is delving into a fresh way of dressing with Betseyville, a casual sportswear collection that includes jeans, T-shirts, skirts, jackets and other more casual pieces not seen from Johnson before. Highly influenced by rock ’n’ roll, Johnson said she has wanted to do a line like this for a long time, but chose to go ahead with it now, after lining up the right production team and factories to manufacture a collection of this size.
