Former Kardashian assistant and brand COO tackles jewelry design

Since Stephanie Shepherd parted ways with one of the most famous women in the world, the former Kim Kardashian executive assistant and brand chief operating officer has finally announced her next move.

According to Refinery29, Shepherd is partnering with jewelry brand 8 Other Reasons for a brand-new jewelry collaboration that is “inspired by the movement around women’s empowerment.” Called “Woman,” Harper’s Bazaar reports that not only did Shepherd help design the products, she is also starring in the brand’s campaign, modeling the designs in some very Kim K-inspired photos.

Pieces from the line are bold, “colorful and cool,” Refinery29 says, but the designs are not just about being visually appealing; the pieces are also supposed to be “symbolic of strong, independent woman everywhere.”

What’s even better than its empowering messaging is its price range, which Refinery29 says stretches from $22 to $100.

SJP launches handbag line

For Sarah Jessica Parker, fashion seems to be as much a part of her identity as her famous Sex and the City character, Carrie Bradshaw. First designing shoes and then a line of little black dresses, the multi-hyphenate is now launching a handbag line.

According to WWD, Parker released a new handbag line called The Seven Essentials, which will be sold at Bloomingdale’s and on Amazon Fashion. Part of her SJP Collection, WWD says the seven-piece line ranges in price from $395 to $695.

While this launch is an exciting addition to her current fashion offerings, WWD reports that this isn’t the first foray into handbags for Parker; in fact, her collection included handbags in 2014, but her new designs not only offer more versatile styles, they are also manufactured in the United States.

As for the silhouettes included in the Essentials collection, Allure says that there is truly a style for everyone available: “There’s a slouchy gray tote ready to become your go-to carryall, a flamingo pink clutch ready to liven up your next happy hour, a poppy red shoulder bag perfect for the weekend, a slouchy bucket bag, a timeless hobo, a sparkly pill clutch, and even a supertrendy backpack.”
