It’s every little girls dream to design her own collection of shoes, but for one little girl who grew up to be one of the world’s most famous women, the dream became a reality. Sarah Jessica Parker made her name playing iconic shoe-obsessive and neurotic Carrie Bradshaw in long-running series ‘Sex and the City,’ inspiring a generation of women to live life to the full – one pair of shoes at a time. Although she made the name of Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik during the show’s six seasons, this time it’s her turn. Sarah Jessica Parker’s debut shoe collection features over twenty different styles, all in bold and beautiful colours and styles that wouldn’t be out of place in Carrie’s closet. Suprisingly they’re not even eye-wateringly expensive, retailing between $195 and $500 (around £150 to £300,) and most importantly – there’s even a shoe called ‘Carrie’.
From the pictures and video below, the shoes are exactly what I would have expected from SJP; classic, bright, wearable, strappy and even a touch of floral. I for one will forever associate floral corsages with Carrie, so I’m extremely happy to see a giant flower on the toe of some Mary-Jane inspired heels. SJP is effortlessly chic, so this collection of shoes only affirms her position as a fashion icon and a woman who can carry off almost anything. She says: “I’ve taken inspiration from things in my life such as the grosgrain ribbons I tied in my hair as a girl, to the flower accents from the ‘Sex and the City’ wardrobe, to references to classic styles from the late ’70s and early ’80s.” Although these will be available in New York from February 28th, I’m not 100% sure when they’ll be available on this side of the Atlantic – but I’m definitely going to be the first one through the door when I find out! What do you think of Sarah Jessica Parker’s debut shoe collection?
