Ok- so we mean Sarah Jessica Parker, but OMG she reportedly really is going to work with shoe genius Manolo Blahnik to create her own shoe collection…squee!
Of course SJP’s character, Carrie, in Sex and the City had a shoe collection to die for but the jewels in the crown were her Manolos. So this is one fairytale ending that’s an even better fit for Carrie than Mr Big.
The range, reportedly named SJP, will include luxurious heels (natch) as well as a selection of bags and trench coats and will launch in Nordstrom next year.
SJP reportedly told Vogue: “In a silly way, I think it’s what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw. It’s sort of soup to nuts. You put on a shoe and you put on a coat and you wear a bag and, on the outside, when you’re walking down the street, they really can tell the same story about yourself.” We think we know what she means!
Does this run the risk of being yet another’ celeb-designed range? Is it (dare we say it) a little predictable or even tacky? Hopefully not as it will be positioned as a luxury line. Apparently the collection will stand out as it will include colours not typically seen together; clever combos in other words. And SJP does have quirky personal style – so this will either be incredible or just a bit weird. We hope for the first option!
The collection better be good as prices will start at $200 for flat pumps with bags reaching dizzying heights of $700. Will you be saving up?
