On the heels of a successful holiday collaboration with Net-a-Porter arrives the next major milestone in Sarah Jessica Parker's growing fashion kingdom: her first standalone brick-and-mortar SJP boutique that will house all shoes, handbags, accessories, and her little black dress collection. But for someone who's the very definition of a quintessential New Yorker, who once starred in a hit show about all things in the city, the real kicker here is that Parker looked outside of Manhattan—AND the state, for that matter—for her new storefront and found real estate at MGM National Harbor, located minutes from Washington, D.C. (exact address: 7100 Oxon Hill Rd, Oxon Hill, Md.).
"Opening a standalone store has long been a dream we have been working towards and we feel truly privileged to be doing so with the expertise, guidance, and support of our brilliant partners at MGM Resorts," Parker says in a release. "It's been very exciting to have been involved in all steps of the process, from on-site construction visits to the actual layout and design of our boutique. I'm honored to be included in this massive undertaking and I'm very much looking forward to celebrating in December. Because perhaps then I will believe it's real."
The SJP boutique opens the same day as the resort—Dec. 8—and will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. beginning Dec. 9. As of now, there are no renderings or images of how the boutique will look, but what we do have is a glimpse at the construction site.
Today I reveal every detail of our long held secret! After many trips on @amtrak to DC, on-site construction visits, meetings on design and curating a very special collection we are opening our first standalone @sjpcollection store inside the brand new @mgmnationalharbor. The big launch is on December 8th and I'm counting down the hours, minutes and seconds until we officially open the doors. Because perhaps then I will actually believe it's real. Follow @sjpcollection to learn more over the coming weeks and months. X, Sj
