The campaign images depict an English summer day in London’s Kew Gardens. Elegant and provocative, the latest offering of shoes elevates easy-to-wear, everyday styles and shapes.

“Spring ’14 is an ode to the English rose, fusing London-cool with designs to suit our daily uniform. Nordstrom will see exciting additions to our signature B Series stilettos, boots, high sandals, slip-ons, flatforms and flat sandals elevated with a crafty palette and materials for the art of living,” says Rebecca Farrar-Hockley, the brand’s creative director.

With spring in the air, celebrate the changing season by slipping into a new pair of Kurt Geiger London Pumps.

Jason Wu’s Power Girls

Jason Wu gave a nod to the ’90s on Friday with a spring collection full of slinky slipdresses, textured sweatshirts and boxy, tailored suiting. In keeping with his fascination with femininity—especially its darker side—Wu played with the idea of the corset, placing laces here and there, but for the most part, looks were unstructured and slightly slouchy, in a curve-flattering way. The show opened with supermodel Karen Elson wearing a halter-neck gown covered in sparkles, hair parted severely down the middle. Meanwhile, Alicia Keys and Mad Men’s Jessica Paré held court in the front row, sporting fitted black dresses with lacy necklines.
