A Betty and Veronica Fashion Line Is on Its Way

Archie Comics taps designer Rachel Antonoff to bring the beloved characters to life.

In a rather unexpected announcement, Archie Comics reveals that it has enlisted designer Rachel Antonoff to interpret its beloved Betty and Veronica comic series into a fashion line. Known for her feminine vintage-inspired aesthetic, it seems that Antonoff is the perfect choice to breath life into the two iconic characters. The Betty and Veronica by Rachel Antonoff collection is set to launch online this fall and will hit retailers (which will be announced shortly) soon after. The collection will also be a full-fledged line, not just a capsule offering. By spring, the collection is expected to offer 80 pieces that will retail between $78 and $398 USD. Adding a modern spin to the dynamic duo, the pieces are inspired by the comics’ archives and are meant to portray what Betty and Veronica might wear in 2016.

“We really wanted to find a balance between slapping their faces on shirts and then also just having clothes that feel like Betty and Veronica would like and would wear,” Antonoff says. “All of the prints are very Betty and Veronica-centric. I think each one is pretty recognizable. Even though we did a polka dot, but you look closely, you can see they’re actually speech bubbles, not polka dots.” Although we are yet to peek designs from the collection, we can’t wait to see more. Stay tuned here for more details.
