Just in time for the holidays comes a collection of little black dresses from one of New York’s greatest ambassador, actresses, footwear designer and style influencer Sarah Jessica Parker. The SJP LBD collection is the second collaboration with Bloomingdale’s following her SJP shoe line.
The first of the American-made dresses — a $395 sleeveless, above-the-knee style with a jersey bodice and layered tulle skirt — will be sold exclusively in 32 Bloomingdale’s stores and on the retailer’s web site and will be available in sizes 0 through 12, reports WWD.
The SJP LBD will be featured in Bloomingdale’s Lexington Avenue windows in mid-October as part of a capsule collection of Little Black Dresses that have been created exclusively for the retailer by various designers including Karen Millen, Sandro, Tahari, DKNY and Theory. Parker will make an appearance at the retailer’s 59th Street flagship to celebrate the launch sometime in mid-October.
“We anticipate this to be a huge success. Sarah Jessica is a fashion icon and is a favorite among Bloomingdale’s consumers. Her shoes are an important part of our footwear assortment and she has been a remarkable partner in helping us launch and sustain that business,” commented Bloomingdale’s vice chairman Frank Doroff. www.bloomingdales.com
