Sunglass Hut and SJP Team Up for Exclusive Eyewear Collection


NEW YORK—It was a rainy Monday night in October, but a crowd stood in silence to hear Sarah Jessica Parker talk about sunglasses. This month, Sunglass Hut and the actress teamed up to unveil an exclusive collaborative collection—a signature sunglass style, designed by Parker, and available in five different colorways. The shield-like frames feature nylon fiber boning, and are inspired by the sunglasses Parker wore in the 90s. She explained, “I owned a pair of shield shaped sunglasses in the 90s that I absolutely loved, and I was so sad when they were discontinued.”

Now, fans can buy a pair inspired by SJP’s old favorites. The glasses, available in black with gradient grey or gradient green lenses; grey with pink mirror gradient lenses; blue with petroleum blue mirror gradient lenses; and tortoise with brown gradient lenses, also come packaged in a box that mirrors Parker’s iconic shoeboxes, and show off an SJP logo on the right temple.

Parker said, “Partnering with Sunglass Hut on this exclusive collection has been such an exciting experience and I’m so pleased to unveil the styles in my favorite place, New York City. Sunglasses have always been a staple in my wardrobe. It was very important to me when creating this collection that they would be an accessory I would want to wear all the time, no matter the occasion.

“Like many women and working mothers, I’m constantly moving from one event or meeting or appointment to another, so I love the fact that these sunglasses are so versatile and lightweight. I feel comfortable wearing them knowing how easily they fit into my life and personal style, which was an aspect that helped shape the direction of our creation process.”

The SJP X Sunglass Hut collection is available at select Sunglass Hut stores worldwide, on, at SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker New York City boutiques and on
