Sarah Jessica Parker has created a shoe collection

SJP's shoe collection will be available later this month


Sarah Jessica Parker's new shoe collection has been shrouded in secrecy ever since the Sex and the City star announced she was creating it back in September.

But, finally, ahead of the collection launch later this month, the first image has been leaked. And it's a beauty.

Simple and elegant, the shoe, called 'Diana', is a single sole, Mary Jane style heeled pump with a diagonal strap. It's just what you might expect from the woman who spent years wearing the most fabulous designs in the world as the shoe-obsessed Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City.

In fact, SJP credits her iconic character for igniting her interest in designing her own collection. Speaking to Lucky magazine, who were lucky enough (sorry) to get their hands on the first image from the line, Sarah said: 'Carrie's love of shoes meant I got to wear literally hundreds of pairs - and the more I wore, the more I realised that they are often the starting point of the style choices we make. Sometimes in fashion, little else matters but the shoe.'

Eagle-eyed SATC fans have noted that the Diana shoe bears a striking resemblance to the black Manalos Carrie picks out in the Urban Shoe Myth episode. Watch for yourself below.

Eschewing the platform which has become almost ubiquitous in design recently, SJP told WWD: 'I was so happy to support the single-sole shoe again.'

'Trust in the simple,' she added.

The rest of the collection includes other classics, with one T-bar style even called the 'Carrie.' Kitten heels, flats and strappy sandals also all feature.

The collection will be unveiled at Nordstrom later this month. We just hope we can buy online…
