Sarah Jessica Parker to Design Shoe Line SJP

Carrie Bradshaw Lives On: SJP Opens Up About Manolo-Approved Shoe Line

Sarah Jessica Parker will debut a line of shoes, bags, and trench coats called SJP — thus fulfilling a Carrie Bradshaw-made prophecy. "We thought [about the metropolitan New York woman]. A beautiful coat, bag, and pair of shoes — they all kind of go together," the actress told WWD.

The announcement came on the heels — literally — of the 15th anniversary of Sex and the City, and if you've even seen the opening credits, you know the HBO series put Parker on the map as both a fashion icon and, of course, as a Manolo Blahnik loyalist.

It makes sense, then, that the actress has chosen to collaborate with Manolo Blahnik's CEO, George Malkemus, and will draw inspiration from "great old-school labels like Charles Jourdan and Maud Frizon." In as much, expect classic, elegant silhouettes in unexpected colorways, with pumps and flats priced from $200 to $300, and bags starting at $700. Parker told Vogue, "We're putting new colors together that people don't typically do, just beautiful combinations that you wish existed in your closet."

Grosgrain will be one of the signature materials used within the footwear line, and Parker explained why. "I grew up having to wear grosgrain hair ribbons every day. We had a [bureau] dedicated to them." But that's not the only fabric she favors: suede also registers high on her list. "I don't like a shoe to be too shiny. Sometimes it loses its chicness. That's why suede is so nice — it takes color so beautifully as opposed to calf."

The SJP accessories collection is slated to launch in early 2014 and will be sold exclusively through Nordstrom. As for what Parker had to say about (finally) taking the design reins: "In a silly way, I think it's what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw."
