Illustration for article titled Betsey Johnson Breaks Hearts

You know what you're getting with a Betsey Johnson show: color, joie de vivre and plenty of pattern. But yesterday, you got double for your money: a Valentine's show that presented both Johnson's "Black Tag" line and the new, affordable "Pink Patch." They were themed, naturally, "He Loves Me" and "He Loves Me Not." Although you could have guessed that by looking at the clothes.

The other half of the show looked about a hundred times more fun to walk.

In fact, a lot of the themes were the same — minus the scowls!

Color, pattern, even shape echo the first half — albeit scaled back (in shape) and amped up.
