Sarah Jessica Parker has finally decided to turn her obsession with footwear into a brand new shoe line!
Sarah tells Vogue it was only a matter of time. “In a silly way, I think it’s what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw.” The actress will create the new line with George Malkemus, CEO of Manolo Blahnik. Her line will also include bags and trench coats.
The collection, with shoe prices ranging from $200 to $300 and bags going for just below $700, will sold exclusively at Nordstrom and hit stores in early 2014.
While her “SATC” character was shoe-obsessed (remember the lost Manolos episode?), Sarah Jessica’s love of high heels doesn’t quite match Carrie Bradshaw’s. “For ten or so years, I literally ran in heels. I worked 18-hour days and never took them off,” SJP told The Edit back in March. Now, unfortunately, “the chickens are coming home to roost” and Sarah Jessica limits her high-heel wearing to only the nicest shoes.
But she’s still got all that footwear knowlege stowed away. “Because I got to play that role, I wore a lot of shoes,” Parker tells Vogue.com about new venture, “and by default I learned an enormous amount. It’s hard to walk away from that.”
Makes perfect sense, no? I think she’s going to be a great designer. I can see her designing really beautiful shoes.
