RBG is not just a judicial icon, she’s also a fashion one.

Banana Republic on Monday revealed that the company will reissue Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Dissent Collar Necklace for a limited time.

The retailer posted a short video on Instagram depicting a variety of women wearing the accessory around their necks, captioning the post, “Introducing the limited-edition Dissent Collar Necklace, reissued from 2012.”

“Beloved by our favorite lady of justice. We're proudly donating 50% of the purchase price to the @aclu_nationwide Women’s Rights Project. Exclusively online,” the company wrote.

The dissent collar has become synonymous with Ginsburg’s way of showing the public how she feels about a decision on the bench. She even wore her collar the day after Donald Trump’s presidential election win to showcase her disapproval of the results. According to Town & Country, the justice once told journalist Katie Couric that the jabot “looks fitting for dissent,” which is why she has chosen to wear it.

An advocate for women’s rights and gender equality, Ginsburg has served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States since 1993, when she became the second woman appointed to the court.

Prior to her ascent to the Supreme Court, Ginsburg co-founded the Women’s Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union, which is meant to fight discrimination against women, in 1972.

Recently, the life and accomplishments of Ginsburg have been depicted in the CNN documentary RBG and the Mimi Leder-directed film On the Basis of Sex, starring Felicity Jones as the justice and Armie Hammer as her husband. 

The collar goes for $98. It will be available for presale on Monday and available for purchase on the Banana Republic website on Tuesday, Jan. 15.
