Alejandro Ingelmo's shoes may not be as daring as McQueen's Armadillo, but they certainly aren't for the faint of heart, either.
Meant to be worn by the bravest, most sexiest souls - or at least those who fancy themselves as such - his pairs are unforgettable showstoppers that boast as much craftsmanship as they do that special brand of crazy It-Shoe flair.
And in case you doubted that, Ingelmo elevated his stunners in an industrial-chic installation at The Standard this past NYFW, making it even easier to marvel at both his technical dexterity and obvious knack for shoe drama.
With some help from artist Shelia Pepe, the Cuban-American designer unveiled his SS13 collection atop rugged concrete blocks and under dramatic spotlights intertwined within Pepe's netted hangings; I'm most glad to see he retained that jagged feel from his older Origami pieces for next spring.
