Nordstrom will be the exclusive retailer carrying the SJP collection of shoes, handbags and trench coats by Sarah Jessica Parker. The actress, who is best known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex & the City, has been a style icon over the last 15 years. Known for her own personal sense of style and extensive shoe collection which includes Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo, she is ready to dive in to the world of design with full force.
Although this isn’t her first foray into the design business she does feel this is her first venture that is really representative of who she is and is much more personal. She first debuted a line of budget-friendly merchandise at retailer Steve & Barry’s back in 2007 and in 2010 she became the President and Creative Director for Halston Heritage which lasted a year and a half.
The launch of SJP at Nordstrom seems like the perfect match for Parker representing a balanced collaboration of style and practicality. Parker, like her TV character Carrie, wore heel heights so extreme they could be unbearable to walk in. But for this collection she is offering a variety of styles with more options of style with sensibility. Working closely with the president of Manolo Blahnik USA, George Malkemus, she is certainly in good hands with such a partnership. With respect to choosing to launch at Nordstrom she said, “Nordstrom has an impressive shoe history and such a vast knowledge about the shoe industry and the business of shoes.”
The collection hits Nordstrom on February 28.
