Sarah Jessica Parker Teams Up With Manolo Blahnik For Shoe Line

America’s sweetheart Sarah Jessica Parker is releasing her own shoe line with shoe maven Manolo Blahnik, and it has been deemed practical, budget-friendly, and uber-fashionable.

Featuring elegant T-straps, edgy booties, cute flats, and fashionable pumps, the shoes will cost between $195 and $485. ”Those are hard-earned bucks so I really tried to give women beautiful silhouettes and colors and excellent quality for their money,” said Parker to O magazine. The mom of three and wife of actor Matthew Broderick adds a special, unique personal touch to each pair, with a ribbon stitch on the back of the heel.

Parker pays homage to Carrie Bradshaw, her character muse from the ”Sex And The City” franchise, by naming a nude, T-strap heel after the fashionable New York writer. “The Lady,” a classic, brightly-hued pump is also a staple in the collection. “This shoe is polite and old-fashioned,” she said. “It suits a wide range of women with its simple silhouette.”

Carrie was a huge fan of shoe designer Manolo Blahnik, so it was only right to collaborate for Carrie’s huge fan base of women. “Sarah called me and said she’d been thinking a lot about shoes. Before she could finish that sentence, I said, ‘Be in my office tomorrow morning,” said Blahnik CEO George Malkemus to O.

The fashion designer and perfume creator will release her line in a pop-up shop, exclusively for Nordstrom’s in New York from February 28 to March 2. Afterwards, pop-up shops will launch in other major cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Seattle.

Sarah Jessica Parker: Shoe line is ‘so exciting’

Sarah Jessica Parker says her new SJP shoe line is ”so exciting” and reveals that she approached Manolo Blahnik CEO George Malkemus with the idea.

Sarah Jessica Parker says her new shoe line is ”so exciting”.
The ‘Sex and the City’ actress has teamed up with George Malkemus, the CEO of Manolo Blahnik – the luxury shoe brand her iconic Carrie Bradshaw character was known for loving – for the new SJP shoe range, and Sarah is thoroughly enjoying the creative process of designing her own footwear.
She gushed to Harper’s Bazaar magazine: ”The shoe business is so exciting because we don’t have to think of black and brown as the only neutrals anymore.”
The actress’ colourful shoe line will feature bold colours like navy and mocha, feminine shapes and low cut heels, according to the magazine.
Sarah, 48, also revealed that she was the one who approached George with the idea of launching her own shoe line after fielding offers from major designers for fashion collaborations.
George added: ”She has a fan base in the fashion world that’s extraordinary, and it’s truly because she’s such a nice person. Were it anyone but Sarah Jessica, I wouldn’t have done it.”
The actress previously had her own clothing range, Bitten, and worked for free as creative director of Halston, but says the experience didn’t go smoothly.
She explained: ”We’ve all worked with complicated people and I always think that I can disarm them. I love collaborating. I’m a great listener and learner, and I don’t think I know more than they do. I’m transparent.”
Sarah’s SJP shoe line – which will range in price from $250 to $450 – will be available in Nordstrom stores in the US from February 2014.
