Sarah Jessica Parker to Launch Shoe Collection

'Sex and the City' actress Sarah Jessica Parker will unveil an eponymous shoe collection in 2014, created in collaboration with the CEO of Manolo Blahnik.'
Sarah Jessica Parker is synonymous with shoes, particularly sky-high designer ones, thanks to her definitive role as Manolo-loving Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City - it comes as little surprise then that she's in the process of creating her own line of footwear.

In yet another parallel to her SATC character, the actress's business partner in the venture is Manolo Blahnik CEO George Malkemus. Though shoes will be the focal point of the brand, which will take her initials as its name, there will also be bags and "a few" trench coats available when it goes on sale exclusively at US department store Nordstrom in 2014.

"In a silly way, I think it's what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw," Parker admitted to "It's sort of soup to nuts. 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," she continued. But how will SJP be any different to the multitude of accessories labels already on the market? "We're putting new colours 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." So there you go.

Prices will start at $200 for flats and single-sole pumps, while bags will retail for under $700, but there's no word on whether the collection will be available over here in the UK yet.
It's not Parker's first flirtation with the design world. She acted as president and chief creative officer of Halston Heritage for a year and half, but left after a number of changes saw the business being taken in a direction she didn't want to pursue.
