Sarah Jessica Parker Is Set To Launch Shoe Line
SJP, The Eternal And Notorious Shoe Addict, Has Revealed Her Shoe Collection Exclusively For Nordstrom To Debut In January
"In a silly way, I think it's what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw," Parker tells Vogue.com. The actress will be teaming up with George Malkemus, CEO of Manolo Blahnik, for a line of shoes, bags and trench coats called SJP.
The collection, with shoe prices ranging from $200 to $300 and bags going for just below $700, will sold exclusively at Nordstrom and hit stores in early 2014.
While her "SATC" character was shoe-obsessed (remember the lost Manolos episode?), Sarah Jessica's love of high heels doesn't quite match Carrie Bradshaw's. "For ten or so years, I literally ran in heels. I worked 18-hour days and never took them off," SJP told The Edit back in March. Now, unfortunately, "the chickens are coming home to roost" and Sarah Jessica limits her high-heel wearing to only the nicest shoes.
But she's still got all that footwear knowledge stowed away. "Because I got to play that role, I wore a lot of shoes," Parker tells Vogue.com about new venture, "and by default I learned an enormous amount. It's hard to walk away from that."
Reflecting Parker's own fashion-forward aesthetic, shoppers can expect a broad color wheel from the line; think asparagus, cherry and dove gray. Each shoe will come with a design detail unique to the brand, including a stripe of grosgrain ribbon up the heel or a small tab on the side of a slip-on shoe.
The actress has also aptly named a T-strap style “Carrie” as tribute to her iconic shoe-addict character in Sex and the City.
