Sarah Jessica Parker Working on Shoe Collection

By

After stepping down from her creative director role at Halston two years ago, Sarah Jessica Parker hasn't included "designer" in her many slash-jobs for some time now. But that's changing: come 2014, she's launching what Vogue deems "a serious shoe collection" (not a joke, apparently), with Manolo Blahnik CEO George Malkemus as her business partner. Named "SJP," the range will consist of shoes and sandals for $200 to $300, bags for around $700, and trench coats, sold exclusively at Nordstrom. 

Parker, who has clearly come a long way since the days of her Bitten line for Steve & Barry's (memories!), tells Vogue that much of her footwear experience comes from ... yes, Carrie Bradshaw: "I got to play that role, I wore a lot of shoes ... and by default I learned an enormous amount." An education that can be boiled down to one word: Manolos.
