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 love the Bitten pants. They are well made and the sizes are made to fit normal people. The shoes – not so much. I like the styles but they don’t hold up well.

The Bitten line of clothing is adorable. It is decent quality for the price. The only reason you cannot currently buy this line of clothing is Steve & Barry’s (the store that carried the line of clothing) went bankrupt. I have several pieces, and I love them! I can’t wait until the line finds a new home!

I bought a few items that were hit or miss. I think the jeans do not fit well and run small. T-shirts are ok but also run small. Dress pants material feels cheap quality. Coats were ok surprisingly. Shoes fit ok but not ideal for comfort. Everything is cute and in style.

I love Bitten. I was very upset to learn that S&B closed. I am happy to hear that the line is still available. The quality was better than expected. I have to do some on-line shopping now!

I bought multiple pieces of hers. I absolutely loved the way her jeans fit. I made sure to by multiple pairs before the stores closed. I am not so found of the shirts, they tend to shrink and be low quality, you have to be careful when washing, cute, but almost disposable.

The jeans were a steal for 8 bucks, the shirts were not worth more than 8 bucks. I am sad to see the jeans gone, I can’t wait to find a store that will sell her jeans.

I have a lot of my wardrobe from SJP’s Bitten line, though it doesn’t look quality, it is! They are extremely comfortable, affordable and the prices are extremely amazing! I totally recommend it to anyone

I have several BITTEN articles of clothing……….love them! Wish I had bought more jeans before Steve&Barrys went out of business. My daughters both love the clothing too. My younger daughter has several coats that she adores. My older daughter likes the jeans and shirts. The shoes seem very narrow so we don’t have any shoes. Wish SJP would find another store SOON to carry the BITTEN line.

I love, love, love the line. It’s a great value and very cute!!!!

Both my daughter and myself love the Bitten line of clothes. I was so sad to hear that the Steve&Barry’s stores had shut down. Please, SJP, don’t let us down…find a new home for your affordable line!

I used to work for steve and barry’s and I purchased everything that was cute from the Bitten line…I never had any problems with the quality of the clothing. Especially the jackets. They’re great. I noticed that the Dear line by Amanda Bynes didn’t hold up as well though. Her clothing ripped easily. I was constantly returning items I bought from that line. I hope they find a place to sell bitten again!
