Hello Lover!! Since Sex and the City first aired on TV we all came to know the Manolo loving character of Carrie Bradshaw played by Sarah Jessica Parker. Now Parker will design a line of shoes called the SJP collection which will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom stores throughout the United States and on nordstrom.com. The line is set to launch on Feb 28.
Parker has tapped George Malkemus, president of Manolo Blahnik, as a her business partner. The SJP collection features Italian-made shoes ($195 to just under $500), handbags ($245 to $375), and a trench coat ($495).
“At long last I am able to share the news of my coming shoe collection and my partnership with Nordstrom in a more official way. When I initially met with George Malkemus to discuss the idea of a shoe line, one of the first things I said to him was that Nordstrom was my dream retailer. And so it seems some dreams do come true,” says the actress and designer.
“This endeavor has been a long time coming, but now that the pieces have come together as they have, with Nordstrom, George and a collection I’m so very proud of, I believe it was worth the wait. I’m incredibly nervous about the launch but so thrilled to finally reveal more details of the collection in the coming weeks. And I’m so looking forward to meeting and actually seeing the shoes on Nordstrom customers as I travel to stores across the country. That will be, I think, the most thrilling moment of all.”
