Update on Sarah Jessica Parker and Bitten

By May 23, 2009

Follow me on:

nullOur readers have been clamoring for more news about petite actress Sarah Jessica Parker, best known for playing Carrie, a fashionista with her own distinctive style, in Sex and the City. They want to know whether or not Sarah Jessica Parker's clothing line Bitten will ever reappear. Bitten, a line of low-cost clothing by Sarah Jessica Parker, was sold exclusively through Steve & Barry's, a now-bankrupt retailer.

The demise of Steve & Barry's left Bitten and some other celebrity clothing lines without a home, and so the line is no longer available, except for some leftovers that individual sellers auction on sites such as eBay. I've contacted Sarah Jessica Parker's publicist's office numerous times in an attempt to find out if there are any plans to revive the line; however, so far I've been unable to get any information about any plans to revive Bitten.

In November 2008, NYMag reported that Sarah Jessica Parker wanted to continue the line with a new retail partner and also to continue the affordable prices of the Bitten line. It seems to me that now would be a good time to re-launch Bitten, given the current economy, in which people are looking for clothing that doesn't break the bank.

Readers Want Sarah Jessica Parker to Bring Back Bitten

LATEST UPDATE from January 27, 2010--What's happening with Sarah Jessica Parker's fashion design career.

I really was sorry to hear that the line Bitten by Sarah Jessica Parker was discontinued. It was nice to be able to shop for styles that were wearable for teens as well as older women. I liked being able to buy my son men’s cargo shorts at a very reasonable price. I really hope she revives this line for all of us.

I love SJP’s Bitten line. I just graduated from college, so having her cute clothes with a price I could afford was awesome.I am short but busty, so it was great to find clothes that fit the “every day woman”. I love her jeans because they came in my size, but I could get them with the “short” tag on them so they weren’t too long. Her shirts, shorts, and dresses are great, too. I wish she would bring them back!

I love my Bitten jeans and wool blend pants! They are so comfortable and fit perfectly. I wish I could have bought another pair of the gray wool blend low rise pants in size 2. They’re great to mix and match with other pieces for work. I kept going back to Steve and Barrys to look for the Bitten plaid pants, vest and sleeveless knit top that was in the oversized poster on the wall. Cute outfit. The SJP Bitten fashion philosophy makes sense in the current economic crisis. We want fashion choices that are stylish and affordable. Sarah, hope you reconsider and bring your clothing line back!

I’m sorry to see the Bitten line go; it sounds like Mr. Steve & Mr. Barry took the money and ran. Shame.

I was introduced to Steve & Barry’s last summer, right before my niece started college; needless to say that store provided a great outlet for her to stock up on the latest trends at very afforadable prices. And did she ever! She often said that the Bitten line’s style and quality equated to some of the top designers. We were sad to hear that it is now defunt, were going to have to shop around for more affordable clothing that hopefully provides the same quality and style as the Bitten line for her sophomore year.

Let’s hope that there is a retailer out there willing to partner with all or some of the designers from the Steve & Barry’s chain and open up a new chain to showcase their designs. So needed in today’s economy.

I loved SJP’s Bitten line–the clothes fit me perfectly and I always get tons of compliments on them. I was so sorry to see them go and I keep searching hoping someone else will pick up the line!! I think H&M would be a good match (hint? hint?)

The clothes were most affordable and of quality materials and workmanship. They held up better than some more expensive and well known brands.So sorry to see it gone.

I loved her clothing!!! Most of my wardrobe is from her line. The fabric of her clothing didn’t look cheap at all. i hope she finds a new home for Bitten soon!!

(11) Mreeder says:

I loved her Bitten line. Her jeans are the best. At this point I have lost weight and I’m unable to fit in my one’s I bought before B&S went out of business. I have been on a hunt for the last pairs I could find. I have not been successful. I really wish she would bring the clothing back. She was a real designer who knew about the figure of women!

(12) Teesa says:

I am greatly disappointed that SJP’s line of Bitten is no longer available, It’s too bad. All the clothing that I have purchased from her line was fashion savvy, mix & matchable, The JEANS I purchased right before getting pregnant in 2007… I am still wearing them! I wish they would find a new “home” for her line soon~ SJP has so much talent!

I absolutely love the Bitten Line. I was finally abale to find jeans that fit my body type without any alterations. I adore SJP and was so excited to see that she not only had a brand new clothing line, but one that was very affordable. Even if it was relaunched with higher prices I would still spend the money for the great clothing and accessories!!!

To whom it may Concern,
Please for those of us who are in our mid 30′s and wear between a size 0-2 and sometimes can fit in a 4 at a pettite size there is no better clothing line then “Bitten”
It is not only affordable, but you don’t have to worry about folding up the bottom of your “jean” so thick that a snake can bit you and you won’t feel it… I am a single mother of two age 34 and usually have to buy in d teenagers section because I am short 4’9″ tall and weigh only 96 lbs. Please don’t let us loose this beautiful line “Bitten”.
Thank You

PLEASE bring back the “Bitten” line. This line has so much potential to be HUGE. THe style and cut of clothes were so classy and fashionable, not to mention affordable!! Please please, middle class America needs “Bitten”. I love the coat, pants and shirt that I bought a couple years ago, even made special 1hour and half trips just to get back to Steve n Barrys for SJP’s clothes.
Target would be a wonderful prospect to carry the line.

A friend and I were talking about the Bitten line today and we too really liked it. I have skinny jeans and I love them. Plus the line had tall in jeans. So rare. We hope it appears again it was a nice line.

I love BITTEN clothing. I think it should be sold through forever 21 or wet seal. These stores have wonderful affordable clothes and Bitten would be an awesome addition.

PLEASE BRING BITTEN BACK!!!!!

I also wish SJP will bring back her BITTEN line of clothing! Especially now, with the currant economy… Being a single mom with five children… well you see my point! I love SJP’s work, and her line of clothing! Sorry to see her line go!And to SJP “bring it back chick”!
