So, the wait is nearly over. From February 28 the highly anticipated shoe collection from our fave fashionista, SJP will be available to buy from US department store Nordstrom.
As a huge Sex and the City fan, I am very pleased to hear she has even named a piece after her shoe-loving, Manolo-obsessed character, ‘The Carrie’, which is a nude T-strap sandal heel.
But, my absolute favourite has to be ‘The Diana’, beautiful black pumps inspired by Manolo Blahnik’s “urban shoe myth” the ‘Campari’ Mary Jane style, left.
Her partner in the SJP collection is George Malkemus, longtime CEO at Manolo Blahnik. Obvs.
During the creative process she used her experience playing Carrie and wearing heels “18 to 20 hours a day on set.”

Speaking to Vogue.com last year on her collection, she said: “In a silly way, I think it’s what people have expected of me most because of Carrie Bradshaw. 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.
“I’ve spent so much time in shoes now. I really feel like I have an advantage… I never took them off, but I wasn’t in pain. I had been a ballet dancer so I don’t know, maybe I prepped my feet with pointe shoes.”
There is something for everyone in the collection, from flats to stiletto, so basically if you’re in your 20s or your 50s – you’re covered.
Having seen the little snippets of the SJP collection, I am rather excited about the launch. My credit card is not.
Unfortunately there isn’t a set date for a UK release as of yet, but hey, that’s what international shipping is for.
What do you think of the first look from the SJP collection?
