If the names of some of the shoes in Sarah Jessica Parker's shoe line sound familiar, it's with good reason. The styles in the 25-piece SJP Collection are all named for fashion influences of the actress's life — from "Maud," which immortalizes legendary designer Maud Frizon, to (of course!) the "Carrie" heel.
Clearly, those sentimental references paid off — the label, which launched this past February exclusively at 26 Nordstrom stores nationwide and on Nordstrom.com, just won the Footwear News Achievement Awards Launch of the Year title. And Sarah Jessica celebrated by posting a colorful heel lineup to Instagram.
It's clear that the collection means quite a lot to the star: "I've taken inspiration from things in my life, such as the grosgrain ribbons I tied in my hair as a girl, and the flower accents from the Sex and the City wardrobe, and references to classic styles from the late '70s and early '80s." Those ribbons appear as signature accents on all shoe styles, which is just one of many surprising details on the well-priced line that ranges from $195 to just under $500.
Though few stars know their shoes like Sarah Jessica, she has good company for her endeavor in George Malkemus, president of Manolo Blahnik USA. While you check out the footwear options that, now more than ever, deserve a home in your closet and listen to Sarah Jessica take pride in the quality of the line, here's something else to fantasize about: SJP Collection handbags and a trench called the "Manhattan" coat will be coming your way shortly. Ladies, we're in love!
