"I'm So Surprised Sarah Jessica Parker Is Getting A Shoe Line!" Said No One Ever.
June 7, 2013
When you think of Sarah Jessica Parker, you immediately think of Carrie Bradshaw. And what do you think of when you think of Carrie Bradshaw? Shoes, of course. So it makes sense that Parker would have her own shoe line–we are just surprised it took her this long to get one. And who is she collaborating with for the line? None other than George Malkemus, the longtime CEO at Manolo Blahnik. Seriously, the collection should just be called the Carrie Bradshaw Collection. SJP told Vogue:
In a silly way, I think it’s what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw…Because I got to play that role, I wore a lot of shoes and by default I learned an enormous amount. It’s hard to walk away from that.
Does anyone remember Parker’s failed clothing line, Bitten, with the now-extinct retailer Steve & Barry’s? Yeah, this shoe collection is what she should have done instead of that. The SJP Collection will be sold at Nordstrom early next year. Her shoes will retail around $200 to $300, and the bags will likely be priced under $700.
The news of the collection always comes during the 15th anniversary of Sex In The City. We kind of think all the Sex and the City hype has passed, but we are sure line will still be a hit. Are you over Sex and the City or are you still nostalgic for the show?
