Banana Republic made a tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg by re-releasing her iconic “dissent collar” necklace two weeks after her death at age 87 due to complications from metastic pancreatic cancer.

The fashion retailer announced Friday that the famous collar would be available for a limited time and renamed the “notorious necklace.”

The famous accessory was originally gifted to the former Supreme Court justice at Glamour magazine’s 2012 “Women of the Year” gala.

She wore it and several others on various occasions as collars became part of her statement look.

Banana Republic’s notorious necklace sold out almost immediately, but the company is working hard to restock as quickly as possible according to the company’s website.

“The Notorious Necklace is officially sold out,” Banana Republic wrote in a post. “Thank you all for the overwhelming love and positive support.”

“Please add more!! I have been checking constantly!!! (Missed today, dang it!),” @besty_davies wrote in a comment. Banana Republic advised in a reply that customers can preorder. However, the item is on backorder for many.

Banana Republic has also pledged to donate 100% of proceeds to the International Center For Research on Women which is a global research institute whose mission is to empower women, advance gender equality and fight poverty.

“This is my dissenting collar,” Ginsburg told Yahoo in 2014 about her iconic Banana Republic piece. “It looks fitting for dissent.”

In 2019, the clothing company previously re-released the dissent collar necklace and said the response to it selling out in a few hours was “tremendous” and “heartwarming.”

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s iconic ‘dissent

Banana Republic has re-released Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s iconic collar necklace, just two weeks after the late Supreme Court justice died at 87.

The clothing retail company announced on Friday it would be bringing back Justice Ginsburg’s black “Dissent Collar” for a limited time, but with a new name: “The Notorious Necklace.”

“You asked, we answered. The notorious necklace, as worn by the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is coming back with a limited reissue,” Banana Republic announced on Instagram.


Ginsburg first received the stylish accessory from the VIP gift bag distributed at Glamour magazine’s “Women of the Year” gala in 2012 and has worn it many a time since.

“It looks fitting for dissents,” Ginsburg told Katie Couric of her so-called “dissenting” collar during a 2014 interview, according to ABC.

In 2019, a previous limited-edition release of her iconic “dissent” collar-style necklaces reportedly flew off Banana Republic’s online shelves before they even went on sale, as she was recovering from early-stage lung cancer.

After the “Notorious Necklace” was announced last weekend, Banana Republic said the accessory had already sold out.

“Thank you all for the overwhelming love and positive support,” the company wrote on Instagram.


To aid in Ginsburg’s mission of supporting women’s equality, Banana Republic said it is donating 100% of proceeds from the sales of the collar — which retails for $98 — to the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW).

A representative from the company said that following a positive response from consumers, the brand is working on updates
