‘Sex And The City’ Fans Will Love Sarah Jessica Parker’s Bridal Collection
by Taylor Borde
Who better than SJP, the woman who wore black on her wedding day, to create the ultimate minimal-chic bridal collection?
The Sex and the City actress, fashion designer, and style icon Sarah Jessica Parker has plenty of experience around lavish wedding gowns. As Carrie Bradshaw, she flaunted a gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown at her New York Public Library wedding, but later opted for a less traditional ceremony with her on-again-off-again (but meant-to-be) true love Mr. Big. It seems SJP has taken the same approach to her latest collection in partner with GILT.
This week the actress released a 10-piece ready-to-wear bridal collection sold exclusively at the luxury online retailer. She designed each piece with the modern, non-conventional bride in mind. It’s perfectly in line with her own wedding style, as she who wore a black Morgan Le Fay dress to her nuptials in 1997, according to WWD.
Composed of classic dresses, embroidered gowns, beaded skirts, sleek jumpsuits, and versatile bodysuits, this collection can take the bride from rehearsal dinner to reception, and even after with creative styling. There are even options for bridesmaids and wedding guests in black, blush, poppy, light gray, and blue that they’ll be begging to wear. Each piece comes in sizes XS to L and 0 to 14 and ranges from $295 to $2,395. And everything is made in New York, as it should be.
“I think there’s a lot about these that are conventional silhouettes. I’ve got no business designing wedding dresses, I think that would be fraudulent, and diminishing the people who have been doing it for a really long time. That’s serious business,” SJP told WWD. “People work years and years and years to build those businesses, and really have to understand draping, foundations. That’s a massive undertaking. I’m not a designer and I don’t have those skills, but I have ideas and dreams. I knew I wanted something that felt modern and felt [like] there was life in it beyond that day.”
And that’s not all. In addition to the skirts and jumpsuits, 15 exclusive styles from the SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker shoe line are also available in brand new colors and heights to complement the bridal collection. The shoes, that just so happen to rival Bradshaw’s iconic Manolos, are priced between $350 and $485.
