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!

Der er ingen tvivl om at kvaliteten stemmer overens med priserne. Det er ok, men man kan godt mærke at det er billigt materiale, det betyder selvfølgeligt ikke at det altid kan ses ;)

This may be a little late to respond to the previous comment, but I love her bikinis. I am very curvy, and I require large bikini bottoms, and trust me, I am very picky. I found that with her line the swimsuits fit great and look amazing! I am now in search of some new styles, but I am having problems online. Also, the quality is very good considering the price. The material is soft and does not cut into the skin like many bikinis. Hope that helped!

I loved her clothing line. Sure, it wasn’t the highest quality you’d find and it certainly wasn’t couture. But it was fashionable and affordable. I saw someone mention that the jeans didn’t flatter them at all. Well, aren’t all jeans like that? They’ll flatter certain people and not others? I have a ton of her jeans, because they were the only brand that looked good on me. And I could buy them for $9 during Steve & Barry’s end of season sales. I’m really disappointed the store is going out of business, it was a favorite of mine. Not only did I love Bitten, but I bought Venus Williams’ sneakers and active wear and the occasional Amanda Bynes piece.

The boy cut panties are the BEST BEST BEST ever, they don’t show panty lines and they don’t go up your #%@!!!!!! I was about to go get more a while back and ran out of time, and now I am at a loss! They are nice cotton with a lace trim to make the ultra comfy and sexy! I am going to hunt them down some how, any help?????

She was even wearing them in the movie, Sex & The City. When she got in bed she had the gray ones on.

When I was in Sears a couple weeks ago, they were running her commercial. I don’t know if that means anything but possibly she chose Sears to host her clothing line. Anyone know?

I have several pairs of her Bitten Jeans “love” them. Her clothing, however is cut small so you may have to go up a size or 2, I am normally a size 18/20 & had to purchase size 22, but I love how they embrace my curves.

i love bitten clothes and was sad when it wasnt there anymore cant wait for more bitten clothes.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Bitten.
The clothes were pretty much my style–mostly neutral colors, alot of cute sweaters and button-ups. NOTHING hoochie or whatnot. And ALL affordable.
Considering I haven’t heard any recent news about it, I’m starting to think the line with never be re-launched, which is saddening since it was the FIRST place I went to buy clothes.

BRING BACK BITTEN!!

Nina on

I have a couple of pairs of bitten jean – they are wonderful.
