Alejandro Ingelmo Spring 2013-------
Label: Alejandro Ingelmo
Need to know: Alejandro Ingelmo has gained a reputation for sky-high platforms that have become staple shoes in the closets of stylish girls. But for Spring 2013, the shoe designer went a different route. Chunky heels were swapped out for sleek, pointy-toed stilettos in iridescent metallics and neons. His signature attention to geometry was still there, though—think suede and python cage heels with origami-esque cutouts. If you’re only in the market for one new shoe a season, good luck trying to narrow it down here.
He says: “There is a new kind of sexiness here,” the designer said moments before his presentation. “You have to experiment and look at things at a different angle, because ultimately there are other ways to draw attention to feet without the shoes being super-high.”
Where to find it: Alejandro Ingelmo in Soho, 51 Wooster St., NYC.
