Compared to last years' Spring 2012 collection this year is a lot brighter with Betsey, not that last year wasn't bright. She just had some softer florals and textures. And even in the middle of blooming florals she still manages to put include leopard prints and rough touches. That's just part of the beauty of Betsey Johnson's talent.
Here's my favorite piece from last year's collection. The skeletal ribs with nature details is ideal, as beautiful as the decomposition of the body and nature blooming from a rotting corpse.
