15 years after making Manolo Blahnik a house hold name, SATC star Sarah Jessica Parker will be launching her own shoe line. I for one being a huge SJP fan, I am ecstatic to hear the news! This has been a long time coming. “In a silly way, I think it’s what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw,” Sarah Jessica Parker tells Vogue of her shoe line launching in 2014.
The line will be exclusively sold at Nordstroms department stores. The collection will be called SJP and will include footwear, purses and trench coats. The line will be designed by Sarah Jessica Parker and longtime CEO of Manolo Blahnik, George Malkemus.
“We’re putting new colors together that people don’t typically do, just beautiful combinations that you wish existed in your closet,” she says. “And in terms of bags, thinking about that period of the seventies into the eighties, what those women were carrying, taking away the bells and the whistles and hardware and really making it about the bag.”
Parker adds, “Because I got to play [Carrie Bradshaw], I wore a lot of shoes and be default I learned an enormous amount. It’s hard to walk away from that.”
