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’m a 40 year mom and grandma. Bitten allowed me to afford a much needed wardrobe update (my Christmas present from my husband). I had a lot of fun picking stuff out and didn’t feel guilty about how much I spent. Thanks SJP, for letting me start the new year feeling great!

I bought a few cute dresses and shirts from her line, They were all very cute, good quality and I got tons of compliments!

BubbleGum-

I actually have quite few pieces from SJP’s collection. I love them! They’re good quality and they’re priced well. :)

I must say I was disappointed when Steve & Barry’s closed doors. For those of you who don’t know…quality does not always have to be in the price tag. Sarah out did herself with her affordable line. I’ve spent upwards of $200 on slacks and have not necessarily seen the type of quality I have in the Bitten line. They are by far my favorite slacks, tops, and tees. I had a hard time with the jeans, they just felt like they were made for someone with no shape. All in all I loved the line and am looking forward to someone picking it up.

I bought her houndstooth coat more than a year ago and it’s still together and getting me compliment after compliment. Looks much more expensive than it really is. Can’t beat a $20 coat that I’ve been able to wear for two winters so far.

Here line was sold at Steve&Barry’s But that store closed in January. She should sell her clothing at Target.That is a great place to do it. I’ll bet they would welcome her with open arms. Or she should start her own stores.

I loved her clothing line. I was so disappointed when Steve and Barrys went under. So relieved to hear shes looking for someone else to carry her line. The fit is great, quality and price. I hope to see her line else where soon.
