Nordstrom is about to premier the essence of iconic Carrie Bradshaw. Her poetic story on the SJP shoe collection will embrace the New York lifestyle. An apartment on the Upper East Side; girlfriends to roam the Big Apple; and do not forget the tons of dates chasing after you and shoes juts like the ones Carrie Bradshaw wore on the hit television series. These shoes tell a story. Luxury. Do you recall that episode in Sex and the City where Ms. Bradshaw strolls into a chic street market as she narrates, “I was looking for a $5 vintage dress to go with my new $500 shoes.”
High heels are the center of this fashionista’s every single outfit. The ultimate staple to her wardrobe happens to be Manolo Blahnik paired with something funky, vintage and chic garments. Like Carrie said in the Sex and the City Movie:
It’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun. Carrie Bradshaw
What to expect from the collection
If you have been a regular fan of Sex and the City, you have probably been given a snippet of some drool worthy shoes on each episode. That is not to say that Ms. Bradshaw was responsible for making women love shoes, but she certainly brought to light the secret every woman was afraid to reveal and their love of shoes came out of the closet full force. This shoe-centric TV segment brought to life the celebration of fashion and femininity and now, this is what Sarah Jessica Parker is bringing to Nordstrom. That high-end sense of luxury and pampering women craves.
These shoes will retail at a mid-luxury level. They still pack a punch when it comes to the cost but, they are priced lower than what Manolo would retail for on the market. With prices ranging from $200 to $375, you can get a slice of that Big Apple charm. The SJP line is vivid and vibrant and paints a pallet that is both classically New York with that Italian quality craftsmanship. You can really see her personal style injected into the collection with names like The “Wallace” sandal, The “Leslie” wedge in coral, The “Etta” sandal in mauve and The “Lady,” she pays homage to her alter ego’s lifestyle. The designs and names give a clean look with charming influences from Sarah Jessica Parker’s childhood along with the lifestyle embraced in Sex and the City. The SJP Collection is starting out on a good note with in-person appearances from the creator herself. One of the hot spots she will be setting up includes a Pop-Up Shop located at 372 West Broadway, New York City.
The dynamic shoe fashion duo
With a power partnership with George Malkemus, the big wig at Manolo Blahnik, this duo is about to bring some jaw dropping moments to life. We are all probably wondering why the fashion icon, SJP, kept us waiting to get into her much-coveted closet. After all, it would only be reasonable for a fashion-fused household name to share her style with the world! However, there is method to the madness and there is a perfect time for everything and some things are worth holding out for in the long end. That almost sounds like a Carrie Bradshaw narrative. The New York Post reports: “Parker was approached many times over the years by marketers but held out for the right deal. Finally, she picked up the phone and called George Malkemus, president of Manolo Blahnik USA and her current business partner. His response? ‘Be in my office tomorrow morning.’ ”
The much anticipated launch date for these pumps is February 28th. It is known that Nordstrom struck an exclusive deal with Sarah Jessica Parker to carry the line. These shoes are already creating a buzz in the social media world with ladies clearing their closet space for some SJP infusion and just in time to pair with the 2014 spring latest trends like black & white colour blocking, girly pastels, and pink jewelry. These shoes look like they are meant for walking. Not just the regular walk, but the Carrie Bradshaw, jaw dropping, head-turning, salivating walk. Sometimes all you need is the right shoe to put your best foot forward.
