Pre-order the Vivienne Westwood shoes worn by Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City 2 poster
Anticipation is already high for the Sex and the City sequel and it’s sure to grow to a full-on frenzy the closer we get to the May 27 premiere, a mere week away. As a SATC fan, I’m certainly counting the days until it’s out and, of course, I’m looking forward to checking out the shoes. Let’s face it, Sex and the City just wouldn’t be the same without all of the fabulous footwear. Even though the movie isn’t out yet, we already know we’ll see plenty of Christian Louboutin featured, but I got an email from someone who wanted to find out where to buy the Vivienne Westwood shoes that are a part of the film. It’s the strappy brown gladiator sandal with multiple buckles that Sarah Jessica Parker wears in one of the official movie posters (pictured above) and it has extra-long straps that hang down from the side. It’s definitely one of those to-die-for kind of shoes.
According to Vogue UK, this particular pair was originally made for the Vivienne Westwood spring/summer 2009 Gold Label collection to show on the runway and it was never produced to sell. But, due to demand generated by the movie — referred to by Vogue as the “Carrie factor” — the label has decided to make them and sell them at select Vivienne Westwood boutiques so that SATC fans have the “opportunity to own a piece of memorabilia featured in the movie.” But, if you don’t have a boutique near you, you can also pre-order the Sex and the City 2 shoes online at hervia.com, which is the website of UK’s leading retailer of Vivienne Westwood products. They have the shoes on pre-order for £425 and, if my calculations are correct, that translates to roughly $610 with shipping available worldwide.
Don’t forget, Vivienne Westwood was the designer of Carrie’s wedding dress in the first Sex and the City movie and the knee-length version Net-a-Porter offered sold out in a matter of hours, so act quick if you must have these limited-edition stunners or they could be gone for good. The expected ship date is 5/24/10.
Update: Sold out.
