Did Sarah Jessica Parker Have Manolos In Mind When Designing Her First Shoe Line?
January 10, 2014
When we heard last year that Sarah Jessica Parker was going to launch her own shoe line, we couldn’t help but think that Sex and the City was coming to life. After all, the fabulous shoes were half the appeal of watching the show! Ok, maybe the hunky men got us hooked too. But now our dreams have actually hit real life because photos have FINALLY been released from SJP’s collection.
WWD has rounded up some of the styles featured in February editions of Glamour, Lucky and Harper’s Bazaar, and word on the street is that one’s named “The Carrie.” Bet’s on which Manolo SJP used as inspo? Parker did enlist George Malkemus, CEO at Manolo Blahnik, to help with the collection, so it’s no surprise that there is a bit of a resemblance. We all know that Carrie practically drooled over a pair of Manolos, and was even willing to see her almost husband to retrieve a $525 pair. Don’t worry, we’d sprint back to our penthouse apartment too.
Parker explained that she wanted solid craftsmanship with this line, but she wanted them to be somewhat attainable in price. She found a factory in Italy that could give her both. The collection launches at Nordstrom on February 28th, and we’re already planning out which pairs we want. Who are we kidding, we want them all!
What do you think about the shoe collection? Do they look like Manolo Blahniks? Let us know in the comment section below!
