Reflecting on the Style Evolution of the new ‘Sex and the City’ Reboot

And Just Like That

Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha Jones, Charlotte York and Miranda Hobbes – these four names of Sex and the City defined female empowerment in the late ‘90s and early ‘00s and have become icons of pop culture, influencing the way women view and celebrate friendships, careers, love, sexual liberation and most of all, fashion. 

 

Now the series returns, after almost two decades, with a highly-anticipated reboot called And Just Like That..., which sees the women (sans Samantha) navigating the complicated reality of life in their 50’s. As hardcore fans of the original series, we can hardly wait to see how things pick up where they left off following the second Sex and the City feature film in 2010, including the evolution of their wardrobe. Taking over from the prolific Patricia Fields, the lead costume designer of the original series who revolutionised TV dressing, are co-costume designers Molly Rogers and Danny Santiago. We talk to them about what to expect in this new series.

 

Stream or download And Just Like That…, from December 9 or catch up on all six seasons of Sex And The City as well as the two Sex And The City movies now available on HBO GO.

How do you feel about Instagram accounts already documenting the girls new and evolved style before the series air?

 

Molly: “That was really difficult to come to terms with because for me, the minute they stepped out of the camper, it was burnt. It felt like, within five minutes, it was all over the internet. I felt like it was getting overexposed. That’s the wonderful thing about the original show. There was so much mystery and nobody had a camera on their phone. You really could not keep things hidden. We tried to show behind the scenes and not give anything away on our Instagram account because we knew others were giving it all away anytime they saw something on the street. It was hard to keep the lid on all of that. So we just had to learn how to process it and try to keep some things secret. There’ll be some wonderful surprises in the show.”
