It was always expected that Sarah Jessica Parker’s offspring would grow up to have impeccable taste. After all, the Sex and the City alum is the queen of satin pumps. At the weekend the lauded actress and 11-year-old daughter Tabitha Broderick was seen walking the streets of Manhattan in matching mules.
Of course, the embellished style is courtesy of Parker’s namesake shoe brand, SJP. Tabitha opted for the vibrant orange while Parker wore an almost iridescent blue – Carrie Bradshaw would certainly approve. The mother-daughter duo attended the flagship brick-and-mortar store wearing day dresses as the heat continues to rise in the city. It’s not the first time the family has been seen popping by the store for a quick peruse and are often seen out and about.
Parker shares two other children with Matthew Broderick, twin to Tabitha, Marion, and 18-year-old son, James.
Parker married Broderick in 1997. According to the New York Times, the couple started dating after Broderick left a message on her answering machine.
“…he left a very charming, very self-effacing message on the machine. You know, ‘Hi, it’s Matthew Broderick.’ You had to use your last name,” Parker told the publication. “I had to give her my credits,” Broderick replied.
As for Parker’s venture into shoe design, SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker has been running since February 2014 with business partner George Malkemus.
“We founded our footwear collection upon three main pillars: delivering quality products, using colour and sparkle as a neutral, and giving the single sole a new heartbeat,” the website reads. “We arrived in NYC the same month of the same year and share many fashion references from those early days on the island of Manhattan and those points of inspiration have played an influential role in our design process. As well, we both agreed that our shoes had to be handmade in Italy which enjoys a long tradition of being considered the home of the finest shoemakers in the world.”
Stay tuned for a new style icon in the making.
