Sarah Jessica Parker starts her own shoe line. The actress is going to collaborate with George Malkamus, the director of footwear brand Manolo Blahnik.
For years Parker played Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. “In a silly way, I think it’s what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw,” says Sarah Jessica Parker in an interview with Vogue.
“It’s sort of soup to nuts,” Parker continues. “You put on a shoe and you put on a coat and you wear a bag and, on the outside, when you’re walking down the street, they really can tell the same story about yourself.”
“We’re putting new colors together that people don’t typically do, just beautiful combinations that you wish existed in your closet,” she says. “And in terms of bags, thinking about that period of the seventies into the eighties, what those women were carrying, taking away the bells and the whistles and hardware and really making it about the bag.”
Apart from shoes there will also be bags in her collection. The bags will have a late 1970s, beginn 1980s look. Very simple and classic, back to the basic of the bag.
The price of the shoes will be between 200 and 300 dollars (150 to 225 euros). The bags will cost about 700 dollars (528 euros).
Parker earlier designed a clothing line, “bitten” and was advising at the design of fashion label Halston.
