Bit like previous designer, Alejandro Ingelmo has a serious thing with sneakers, his designs are an absolute mut-have for any guy and girl. His TRON is a closet-classic and this season sports great looking metal-like colours. And the nice thing is: you can both buy a pair ;) as his collection is for both men and women. Alejandro also has the perfect pair of Heels, like this Mariposa. His heels are high but always very elegant. A bit of an outsider is Kennedy, a twist on the traditional hand-made loafer ( this one is aswell, in the US) and the finishing touch is a refined brushed colour. You can conveniently shop all this and many more in his online boutique here.
Accessory Designer, Alejandro Ingelmo, debuted his first women's shoe collection in Fall/Winter 2006. Working out of his Soho-based studio in Manhattan, Ingelmo mingles the Cuban influences of his heritage with a directional New York edge.
After finding initial success with his women's line, Ingelmo set forth on the addition of a men's shoe collection to launch in Spring/Summer 2007 and the demand was immediate. "AI's" quickly developed a cult following among editors and celebrities who were captivated by his classic silhouettes in exotic materials.
Alejandro Ingelmo's rich knowledge of traditional craftsmanship originates directly from his family's teachings. While his construction reflects those techniques passed on to him, Ingelmo consistently reaches for modernity in his silhouettes and finishing details. With the essence of his heritage and innovative technological development, Ingelmo has become known for his exquisitely produced product.
