It’s about time. Sarah Jessica Parker is finally designing her own line of shoes.
The news comes exactly 15 years after the first episode of “Sex and the City” aired, and given Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw’s famous penchant for expensive designer footwear, it only makes sense that the star would create her own line.
“In a silly way, I think it’s what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw,” she told Vogue.
According to the magazine, Parker is launching SJP, a line of shoes, bags and a few trenches with help from George Malkemus, the CEO of the brand her shopaholic character made a household name: Manolo Blahnik. For inspiration, Parker is looking to old-school labels such as Charles Jourdan and Maud Frizon.
“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.”
In other words, Parker’s pieces won’t be the over-the-top creations that nearly drove her character to bankruptcy. Single-sole pumps and flats will range from about $200 to $300, and bags will likely sell for less than $700, Vogue reported.
We know there are a ton of celebrity clothing lines out there, and most of them end up being quite disappointing, but we have high hopes for Parker’s line.
What do you think of Parker’s news? Do you think her line will be a hit or flop like so many other celebrity lines?
