Carrie Bradshaw is back and she’s here to stay! Sarah Jessica Parker is teaming up with Manolo Blahnik.Yes those Manolos! The same shoes that became a constant staple and instant fashion hit for six seasons on ‘Sex and the City’. The actress and the CEO of Manolo Blahnik, George Malkemuso are creating a line of bags, shoes, and trenches. During an interview with VOGUE, Parker announced the news saying, “In a silly way, I think it’s what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw.”
So what can fans and fashionistas expect from the new line, aptly titled ‘SJP’? Well, for starters the line will run exclusively at Nordstrom early next year. The line will feature pumps and flats which will run between $200 and $300. “Because I got to play that role, I wore a lot of shoes,” Parker said. “And by default I learned an enormous amount. It’s hard to walk away from that.”
Bags and trenches are also part of the fashionable menu. “We’re putting new colors together that people don’t typically do, just beautiful combinations that you wish existed in your closet.” Don’t be surprised if your bag has a vintage feel to them, Parker is getting inspiration from “the period of the seventies into the eighties”.
So, SJP is bringing Carrie back! Some call this irony, I call it fashion fate! 2014 is looking better than ever!
Are you as excited to hear this as I am? Will the SJP Collection be a MESS or a YES?
