Kristen Wiig wore Alejandro Ingelmo Tron pumps to a screening of ‘Hateship Loveship’ held at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. They’re from the Spring 2014 collection featuring black leather, metallic gold leather toe panels and 100mm heel. Tron is available in black & mint leather at Saks Fifth Avenue and Alejandro Ingelmo.

She coordinated with costar Sami Gayle wearing a J. Mendel crew neck dress with a black bonded bodice, leather waist band and draped asymmetric skirt from the Fall 2014 collection.

Kristen debuted a strawberry blonde hair color which she complemented with a dark red lip and subtle bronze eye makeup. She also accessorized with a Fenton finger cuff and gold bangle by Fred Leighton.

Culebra is a two-tone ankle-tie sandal with a little something extra. They’re from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection designed in black leather with a round tapered toe, sleek stiletto heel, nude leather insole and black leather front ankle-tie. The standout features are added with a beautiful gold mirrored leather accent trim (or rose gold with the nude leather style) and geometric cutout leather ankle-wrap. We’ve also seen Kat Graham wear the embellished style from the Evening collection at a recent NYFW show. Half sizes are available.

Alejandro-Ingelmo-Metallic-Sandal-SHOP

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?

Written by Shannon Weston

When warmer climates arrive, the boots get stored away and cheery sandals (strappier the better) come out to play. I love a classic court shoe but the brighter & more playful spring shoes are always my favorites.

Style.com’s Spring 2014 Accessories Index was just released and market director Marina Larroudé reveals the news on shoes spotlighting 10 standout styles. Her selections focus on several upcoming footwear trends including mules, sporty sandals and kitten-heel pumps.

Style-Spring-2014-shoes
Style-Top-Spring-2014-shoes

Notes:
I’ve named Isabel Marant’s latest creation the moccanstock since they’re a hybrid of a moccasin combined with a Birkenstock-style footbed. Gianvito Rossi solidified the spotlight again this season with his super sexy mules – which he also designed for Altuzarra.

Sporty shoes covered the runways at Milan Fashion Week and the most obvious example of this trend is Prada’s athletic-inspired heels featuring thick rubber bumpers. My favorite choice from Larroudé’s list is Tabitha Simmons super strappy pump in white leather; I imagine these look amazing on the foot.

My top picks:
As usual, my selections are all about the heels and this season they’re especially different from the editor’s picks. I can never pass up a hot shoe! There were so many styles pulling at my heartstrings, it was difficult narrowing this down to 10.

Notes:
Gianvito Rossi is the “master of the mule” and I love the mirrored leather combined with black python. Fendi’s silicone sandals are architecturally amazing and check out the industrial caged “double heels”. I adore Charlotte Olympia’s “Overboard” sea-inspired collection and yes, those are upside down mermaid heels! Diego Dolcini’s strappy sandal is a signature style redesigned in a trendy violet tulip neoprene and captivating shade of indigo.

I would love to know what’s on your must-have list. Sophia Webster’s embroidered boot is such a standout! Another easy addition to my list was the crystal-embellished sandal by Tabitha Simmons – it’s so stunning. Not surprisingly, Ms.Olivia Palermo has already snatched up & worn the beautiful Aquazzura Madison feather pumps.

I’m also working on a personal post of the shoes I’ve been wearing recently & I promise it will be posted soon. X

Noticeable Spring/Summer 2013 shoe trends:

Iridescence

This reflective technique was the first trend I noticed. Designers have used it on both snakeskin and patent leather. It’s also seen in Dior and Pierre Hardy’s collections (not pictured).

Stella McCartney seems to be one step ahead & if you can’t wait until spring, she designed a faux-leather iridescent pump available at Bergdorf Goodman.

Spring-2013-shoes-trends

Mixed Media Madness
There are several obvious examples of this mixed media trend and I chose designs featuring 3 or more different materials. The styles below are colorful and show the designers’ playful side.

For me, the combination of different textures & colors is a hit-or-miss. Christian Louboutin uses mixed media wildly throughout his collection.

Mixed-Media-Shoe-Trend-Spring-2013

Embroidery

I love embroidered details, they give a fun, special touch. Barbara Bui and Balmain have several styles completely embroidered whereas Rupert Sanderson & Isa Tapia feature parts of the shoe embroidered with tropical birds.

Nectarine

Looking through Style.com’s Accessories Index I’ve spotted several orangey tones. Then I saw nectarine listed on the Pantone Spring 2013 Fashion Color Report which has also migrated to footwear. Nectarine has a warm coral touch and is also a skin flattering tone.
