Sarah Jessica Parker launches second fashion line with GAP Kids. ‘Sex and the City’ actress Sarah Jessica Parker has launched her second limited edition fashion line with GAP Kids.
The 53-year-old has revealed that her new collection is inspired by her three children and their ‘different needs’.
Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar, she said: “As a parent of three uniquely different people, I know they have different needs, so it was exciting to think of a way of addressing all of that. A lot of the people at Gap design have children, so they too were bringing that information from parenting and getting their kids dressed and out the door.”
Each item is also inspired by memories of Parker’s own childhood. “We relied on past images of my childhood and things that I wore growing up,” she says. “From silhouettes and fabrics to pockets and rickrack [trims], the design team really thought about how we wanted to use some of those touches that were so important to me and to my sister, who was helping with this collection.”
But one piece feels like it came straight from Parker’s days as Carrie Bradshaw: a hot pink tutu that reminiscent of the opening sequence of the series.
The actress reveals why she’s excited about this particular piece.
“I guess I just like that people still want to wear them. People of all ages,” she says. “We did a very sweet one with pompoms in our last collection and we wanted to do it again. I think it integrates so nicely, and it’s just a very simple, neutral piece in a way. It can be worn with leggings, tights, tube socks or knee socks. It can be worn in the summer with flip flips and sandals. It has a lot of places it can live in a child’s life.”
