Sex and the City fans everywhere have been itching for whatever details they can get their manicured hands on before the second installment of the movie hits theaters next week. On Wednesday, to curb the appetites of some, stylist and SATC costume designer Patricia Field invited a small group of editors to her studio to talk fashion and Carrie.
She admitted that the movie’s 80s flashback scene “frightened” her, but that she “saw the movie and it worked, thank God.” Apparently a pair of white Bryan Atwood shoes are a featured item during that segment.
“The movie is more about the whole ensemble,” Field told editors. “In the first movie, it was about the studded belt and the gladiator sandals. In [the second] movie, it is more about the clothing and whatever shoe works.”
Some old familiar outfits will be making a comeback as well; the newspaper print Christian Dior gown that SJP wore on the TV series will get its moment in the spotlight once again. “There is a reason. It’s in the plotline,” Field said, defending the duplicate Carrie-closet.
Field, who has been designing a line for Payless ShoeSource, also admitted that some of the less prominent castmembers will be wearing shoes from the line. Field’s entire Payless collection, which includes an imitation Chahan Minassian clover charm necklace priced at an affordable $13, will be available at Payless stores beginning next week.
So some notes to wrap up. We’ve learned that there may not be that one-item obsession that there was last movie (the studded belt; how many of you googled it after seeing the movie?), Carrie is rewearing some of her old clothes, and apparently, Payless is going to be a little cooler next week than it’s been in the past.
Sex and The City 2 hits theaters May 27th, but Styleite will be at an advanced screening and bringing you a few special spoilers.
