Kristin Davis inspired by Charlotte York and Southern style for new clothing line
Kristin Davis is the latest celebrity to launch her own fashion line.
The Sex and the City star is collaborating with US retailer Belk, which will distribute her range in 126 of its stores from this autumn.
Belk is a Southern based company, a factor that was a huge draw for Davis who was raised in the south.
She revealed, 'I grew up shopping at Belk. It was the nicest store we had, and I'd save my allowance to go to Belk.'
She added that her hometown style had also proved an inspiration, 'In the South, there is a feminine quality that often gets lost in high fashion. Belk understands.'
On the design process, Davis revealed to WWD that, as with many celebrity lines, her own closet had proved the perfect staring point for inspiration.
'It really started in my closet, which for me is more exciting than going shopping and just seeing what already is available. I have these classic pieces I've have for six, 10 years that I hold onto."
Her SATC alter-ego Charlotte York also became an influence on her own personal style, 'Charlotte dresses in a very feminine way, and I love her playful nature,' Davis added.
