For Alejandro Ingelmo, orange is not the new black. When it comes to his own personal collection, the designer sticks to black shoes.
But for his resort ’16 collection, it’s all about color. The designer showcased mules in both heel and flat styles, plus a chunky mid-heel that’s receiving a strong reaction, according to brand insiders.
Plus, the designer is making a move to sunnier skies: He will head to Los Angeles. (The business will remain headquartered in New York and Italy.)
Here, Ingelmo test-drives the FN 3.
1. How many pairs do you personally own?
“I have 20 pairs of shoes, and they are all black, except for one white pair.”
2. Heels or flats on a woman?
“I feel like it depends on what you’re wearing.”
3. If you were a shoe, what shoe would you be?
“Shoes have an emotional effect on people, so it’s hard to pick one shoe. Some days I would be a trainer, and some days a heel.”
