Sarah Jessica Parker to Design with Monolo Blahnik

A match made in shoe heaven

Honestly, how did it take this long to begin with? Years after the release of not one, but two Sex and the City films, Sarah Jessica Parker is finally in talks to collaborate with Monolo Blahnik (specifically, its CEO, George Malkemus) for her own collection.

"Because I got to play [Carrie Bradshaw], I wore a lot of shoes, and by default, I learned an enormous amount," she said. "It's hard to — no pun intended — to walk away from that."

To be titled "SJP," the collection will feature shoes, handbags, and accessories, and will reflect "old school labels like Charles Jourdan and Maud Frizon," according to Vogue US. However, reflecting Parker's flair for uniqueness, the goal of SJP is to offer something different, with pumps and flats set at around $200, $300, and bags at $700. (Which is actually pretty reasonable, considering both Monolo Blahnik's and Sarah Jessica Parker's influence.)

"In a silly way, I think it's what most people expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw," she continued. "We're putting new colours together that people don't typically do, just beautiful combinations that you wish existed in your closet."

"And in terms of bags," Parker added. "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."

Just get down to the US quickly: SJP will be available only at Nordstrom early next year. (So you might want to start lining up now.)
