Alejandro Ingelmo Spring 2014 Collection

Alejandro-Ingemo-Spring-2014-collectionWith his button-up shirt rolled to the elbows and his sleeve tattoo peeking out from beneath the haphazard folds, Alejandro Ingelmo doesn’t exactly scream “luxury footwear designer.” However, looks can be deceiving – Alejandro Ingelmo is a fourth generation shoe designer born and raised in Miami who has found his calling in making seductive pumps that women will be reaching for season after season. Parsons educated and New York based, his brand has been on a sky high trajectory since his womenswear collection debut in 2006.

One look at his sexy, eye-catching designs erases any question as to why his success has been so monumental. We’re in love with the neutral tones he regularly pairs with metallic leather, but this season the addition of color makes the collection more vibrant than ever. Vivacious orange snakeskin paired with gold and rose gold, minty blue-green offset by glimmering gold, and fuchsia paired with gunmetal are just a few of the combinations that have us double taking. It isn’t any wonder that he’s caught the attention of flashy songstresses like Rihanna, Beyoncé, and Nicki Minaj.

Not only does the delectable color palette have us coming back for more, the geometric twists of the Odyssey, Boomerang, Franca, and Circe designs need to be seen to be believed. Each and every shoe is masterfully crafted with an energetic and fierce flair. Additionally, Sophia Webster isn’t the only designer inspired by the glamor of the butterfly, as Alejandro Ingelmo’s Mariposa heels channel the delicate curves of a butterfly’s wings while a single leather lace and dramatic form elevate it to show stopping proportions.

If you’re not into racy five inch stilettos, he notably has created a selection of flats that channel his strong aesthetic without the heel. Having also designed shoes for Jen Kao, Cushnie et Ochs, Helmut Lang, Roksanda Ilinic and Kimberly Ovitz, chances are you’ve been drooling over his designs without even realizing it!

It isn’t all pumps and high-heeled wonders, though. Alejandro Ingelmo also curates a top-of-the-line sneaker collection for men, most known for his crazy cool and futuristic Tron sneaker.

His designs have been spotted on Stacy Keibler, Miley Cyrus, Cara Delevingne, Janelle Monae, Hilary Duff, Justin Timberlake, and even Robert Downey Jr.! Stars gravitate to his designs because they combine architecture with a hint (or a large handful) of sparkle, creating statement making soles that are as stylish as they are striking. Luckily for us, even if we aren’t covering issues of Vogue or topping musical charts, we can own a pair of Alejando Ingelmo’s fabulous shoes. That’s just as good, right?
