Sarah Jessica Parker’s new line of shoes debuts Feb. 28 at select Nordstrom stores and online. She’s designing the collection with a little help from George Malkemus, who just happens to be president of Manolo Blahnik USA. The brand was a fave of Parker’s character, Carrie Bradshaw, on “Sex and the City.” And, yes, there will be plenty of high heels.
The SJP collection includes more than 25 shoe styles made in Italy, three bags, priced from $245 to $375, and a trench coat, the “Manhatan” at $495.
This isn’t Parker’s first step into the fashion field. Anyone remember the modestly priced Bitten line for Steve & Barry’s in 2007? Then Halston Heritage came calling in 2010 and she served as president and creative director for a while.
Now the style icon has her own shoe line. Fitting, don’t you think?
