London, Sept 8 (ANI): Sex and the City lovers will get a chance to dress like their favourite stars, when a clothing line inspired by the hit TV series goes on sale at Marks & Spencer stores in the UK next month.

The British high street chain has inked a five-million-pound deal with Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field in this respect.

Field showcased her new collection at the New York Fashion Week, at the spring/summer 2009 fashion show, which opened this weekend.

The models walked down the ramp as drag queens in gigantic Dusty Springfield-style wigs, iconic dresses and ensembles, inspired by the hit television series and the movie.

The collection included flirty, 1950s-style, puffball dresses in scarlet polka-dot jacquard and rose-print taffeta, which will cost 75 pounds and 99 pounds, and a turquoise, angel-sleeved, silk shift, based on the dress Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker wore in the Baby Shower Scene in the film.

The new clothing line also included a black, sequined catsuit, costing 99 pounds, and a skin-tight, black and white striped military jacket at 75 pounds, worn with gold leggings, similar to the style of Samantha, played by Kim Cattrall.

If I can wear the clothes, anybody can. Fashion is about enjoying clothes and having fun; its not about age, the Telegraph quoted Field as saying.

Kate Bostock, the executive director of all clothing at Marks & Spencer, described the Patricia Field collection, developed with co-designer, David Dalrymple, as one of the most adventurous projects in the British high street chains history.

Its the perfect marriage. She knows her audience, we have the customers and M&S customers love Sex and the City, said Bostock.

The Patricia Field collection for M&S will feature 40 dresses, starting as low as 40 pounds, in sizes 8-20, as well as tights, shoes, and scarves, from 15 pounds and graffiti-print shoppers, at 2 pounds. (ANI)
