Olivia Rodrigo took her love for all things Y2K to the next level on the 2022 Met Gala red carpet. Evoking an ethereal, shimmering fairy tale, the young pop star’s playful personalized butterfly hair clips famed luxury headwear designer Jennifer Behr and legendary fashion designer Betsey Johnson stole the show.
Merging their talents once again, Behr and Johnson reimagine whimsical accessories inspired by Rodrigo’s Met Gala appearance with a limited-edition butterfly capsule collection — and it’s available at the store now.
The line includes the “Gala Butterfly” clip with Swarovski crystal accents and the “Gabby Bobby Pin” featuring a hand-painted lilac butterfly on a silver bobby pin, both of which mimic the same hair clips Rodrigo has. shaken on the Met Gala carpet. (If you’re looking for outfit inspiration for your new accessories, Rodrigo kept his look coordinated that night in a High-shine lavender Versace chainmail dress with purple platforms, matching sheer opera gloves, De Beers jewelry.)
The capsule collection is a perfect marriage between the brands. The butterfly has its roots in Betsey Johnson’s 1997 Spring/Summer show, where teal and pink butterfly headpieces made their way onto the catwalk. Behr was also drawn to the butterfly design and continued to wear the silhouette of her best-selling Butterfly earrings in other collections and offerings.
“Ever since I started designing, butterflies have always been a source of inspiration,” Behr said in a statement. “We love to reinvent the silhouette and have created an endless assortment of butterfly clips, earrings and headbands over the years. That’s what made this project so special. Butterflies represent renewal and it was the perfect opportunity to bring such an iconic shape to life in a new way.When I saw the inspiration from Betsey’s runways, I knew we could create pieces that would perfectly embody our two brands.
Johnson, the beloved designer who epitomized many 90s trends in her collections, added, “I’ve always loved embracing embellishment and exaggeration, and this capsule does just that. These butterfly styles hold such a special place in my heart. Bringing these pieces from my past collections to life, they perfectly combine my fun, girly and punk vision of fashion. I’m thrilled to partner with Jennifer Behr to reimagine these iconic styles for the next generation.
