Fall marches on! The new season has been here for a few weeks already, sure, but for the sartorially inclined, the shift is about more than just lower temps or fewer hours of daylight—it’s about watching the parade-like stream of new arrivals.

Here comes a lovely example right now: a set of ink-hued, just-released styles from SJP Collection.

(L to R): Florence crossbody, Beekman clutch, Blythe T-strap pump, Daphne pump, New Yorker hobo and Crosstown crossbody.

The latest shoes and bags from the fashion-loving mind of Sarah Jessica Parker continue the classic-meets-sexy vibe we’ve already grown to love from the nascent label—now refreshed with new details like mirrored metallic finishes or saturated colors, like indigo and cobalt blue.

Keep reading to get your eyes on some of SJP’s top picks from the new collection, plus a little outfit inspiration, courtesy of the actress/designer’s recent whistle-stop tour of select Nordstrom stores.

Guest Editor Sarah Jessica Parker: SJP’s Picks

HERO

Sarah Jessica Parker—our guest designer editor and mom of three—honors Mother’s Day by shining a spotlight on Tracey Early, an inspirational mother and friend. Tracey graciously shares her story and chats with Sarah Jessica about parenthood and the importance of family—especially in the face of adversity.

I think we have all met extraordinary and inspiring mothers. I’ve found that one of the many joys of parenthood is how much I learn from other mothers, how comforting their shared experiences can be and how frequently the advice and examples of others teach me to be a better mother, especially at the most challenging times.

As we celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend, one particular mother comes to mind. Her name is Tracey. Her daughter, Lily, and my twin daughters have been classmates and dear friends for the last two school years. When we first met Lily, she was just coming back to school after a fairly long absence due to a diagnosis that required hospitalization and time apart from other children. I want to honor Tracey because she has shown and shared such courage, humor, grace, dedication, optimism and love through scary, exhausting and unthinkable days. We can honor all those unnamed mothers who share stories of challenges and strugglesnot unlike Tracey’sand remember them this weekend with love, respect and our very best wishes.

There are plenty of people whose style makes us swoon, but winning an award for your fashion prowess? That takes a special kind of sartorial magic. So it’s no surprise to us that Sarah Jessica Parker will receive the first-ever Honorary Image Award tonight at the CLIO Image Awards.

The talented actress, widely known for her portrayal of fashion-devotee Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City, has won more than a few awards in the past (four Golden Globes, three SAG Awards and two Emmys—not that we’re counting). But this time she’s being honored for her creative contributions to the fashion and beauty industries—including her fragrances Lovely and Covet, and her recently launched Nordstrom-exclusive line of shoes and handbags: SJP Collection.

Tonight one of fashion’s biggest events takes place: the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala—or as many simply refer to it, the Met Gala. We grabbed a moment with Sarah Jessica to get her thoughts on this year’s event, plus she shared some snaps of four special-edition versions of the classically chic ‘Fawn’ Pump, each decked out in high-sheen satin with the signature grosgrain strip updated in black*—perfect for a formal affair.

Achieving great style comes from knowing who you are and celebrating it! For the fourth installment of Sarah Jessica Parker’s guest editor series, the designer pays tribute to six women who represent SJP Collection street style. From Morocco to New York City to Los Angeles, watch the creative vision of Sarah Jessica and partner George Malkemus come to life in true fashionable form.

sarah-jessica-parker-guest-editor-nordstrom-blog-4th-article-sjp-collection-street-styleIt’s enormously flattering and very fulfilling for those of us who work on the SJP Collection to see the shoes out in the world, having adventures across the globe and doing what they’re supposed to do for women.

I love imagining all that grosgrain traveling around—crossing city streets, strolling through parks and universities, sitting in meetings, driving cars, dropping off kids and meeting friends for lunch. And now to see the shoes actually having these experiences is amazing.

The women who submitted their street-style photographs really have their own elegance. They’re all special and very individual. I especially love the different shapes and sizes and ethnic backgrounds. It makes a nice visual montage of beauty.
