Sarah Jessica Parker Looking for New Home for Bitten

Mega-chain Steve & Barry’s has been having financial woes for the past few months, including multiple bankruptcy filings, which has led us to wonder what is happening to their star lines? Remember, Amanda Bynes, Stephon Marbury and Sarah Jessica Parker have all designed affordable fashion lines for the stores. NYMag.com caught up with SJP last night, who revealed she is looking for a new home for her Bitten line. “We have a lot of home offers,” Parker said. “We have to make sure that any partner we enter into an agreement with wants the same thing for the brand as we do, which is to serve the customer first. You know, it can’t be about commerce, it has to be about the customer, and we have to see who’s really willing to be that generous.” And not to worry, she’s keeping her original commitment to affordable clothing — the majority of the line is under $20. “Now, more than ever, people need all things that are about economy,” she continued. “So I want very much to continue it in the right way. So we just have to figure out what’s right for the customer, and how to do it in these economic times.” We’ll be waiting and watching!

I bought the black and white coat from SJP line Bitten and love it. It is very warm and well made and has been a great addition to my wardrobe.

I have a few items from the Bitten line and they are all very nice and good quality. I live in Canada and so have to shop for Bitten when I’m in the USA. I would love to see her line come to Canada. :)

The quality is poor. I purchased 2 pair of pants, neither fit properly, and they wore out within 6 months. Her shirts do not wash and dry well, either.

I bought a Jean skirt last year for $10 and it is the perfect jean skirt, wear it all of the time, and get compliments on it all of the time. I have bought some things that I haven’t been as excited about, but when you pay $10 for a shirt, do you really expect it to live through more than the season that it is popular in? I think that she is still taking time to perfect it and maybe with a new home she will be able to reach more people and introduce some new products and styles.

SJP definitely NEEDS to get Bitten out of Steve & Barry’s. I purchased one of her puffy jackets…it’s so cute and quality is, eh, ok…and one of the buttons came off. I called just to see if they had it in stock so I could exchange it, and the manager, Saeed, told me in about the same words that I was “Sh*t Out of Luck” and that Steve and Barry’s was bankrupt and nobody cared about my button. I was SHOCKED! Not only that as a customer I was being spoken to like this, but because Sarah Jessica actually has these people representing her and her clothing!!! If anyone knows where she receives fan mail, please post. I’d love to send over a little note to give her an update.

I love the SJP line for Steve and Barry’s. Unfortunately, most of the stores are officially closing today. I hope she is successful in finding a new home for the line.

I worked at Steve & Barry’s we sold her line and not only is the clothing dependable, arrordable but it is also very stylish.

I along with alot of my family members and friends own most of what has been sold of her clothing line.

I LOVED BITTEN. The prices where excellent and fashion should be affordable, i loved that could have a budget and get everything you needed. Love SJP and BITTEN.

To Bubbles – All of my jeans are by SJP and I LOVE them. The only problem I’ve run into is that the zippers go bad after 6 mos. They wash up really nice and are of good quality.
