Well, that was fast.
A limited-edition release of Ruth Bader Ginsburgs iconic
dissent collar-style necklaces have reportedly flown off
Banana Republics online shelves before they even went on sale.
The Supreme Courts oldest justice has made headlines in recent
weeks as she recovers from early-stage lung cancer.
Earlier this week, Banana Republic announced that they'd be
reissuing a black, bib-like collar necklace with faux-jewel
detailing that the "Notorius RBG" first made famous in 2012. The
retailer said they that planned to proudly donate 50% of the
purchase price to the ACLUs Women's Rights Project and the
item quickly sold like a hotcake.
In just a few hours, we pre-sold all units of the necklace that
were made in limited edition for January delivery. Given the
overwhelming response, we are working quickly to create
additional quantities, reps for Banana Republic wrote on
Instagram just one day later.
According to ABC, 85-year-old Ginsburg first received the
stylish accessory from the VIP gift bag distributed at Glamour
magazines Women of the Year gala in 2012 and has worn it many
a time since.
