Battle Ready: ALEJANDRO INGELMO Presents at MADE
On Saturday evening, Alejandro Ingelmo presented his Spring – Summer 14 collection of footwear at The Standard, High Line. Women’s shoes were strappy and ornate, ranging from detailed gladiator boots to glittering heels with metallic reptile patterns. His latest men’s line showcased white-soled creeper-esque sneakers with camouflage patterns and zippered sides.
Coming from a long lineage of cobblers that extends back to the small Spanish village of Berrocal de Salvatierra, Ingelmo now crafts his highly sought footwear from a boutique in SoHo. His heels—sexy, warlike things that have raised women such as Rihanna and Beyonce six-inches above sea level—could strike a man’s heart in more than just a metaphorical sense.
