Your wish has just been granted, StyleWatchers! Sarah Jessica Parker is about to step into some new – and very fashionable – shoes as she is now the designer of her own label (pause for tears of joy).
Alas, we have to wait until 2014 for the collection, which will include footwear, handbags and trench coats, to become available exclusively at Nordstrom. Luckily, SJP dished on her design plans.
In a nod to her trend-obsessed Sex in the City alter ego, Carrie Bradshaw, Parker plans to create some innovative styles for her brand. For the shoes (rumored to range from $200s to the mid-$300s), Parker wants to experiment with interesting color combinations like mocha and navy.
“This idea that black and brown are the only neutrals is done,” Parker told Footwear News, “that’s so liberating for the shoe business.”
Parker, who’s launching the label with Manolo Blahnik president George Malkemus, explained why she chose to put on her design hat again, after her Bitten line for Steve & Barry’s folded in 2009 and she left her position at Halston Heritage in 2011.
