The Highline Room at The Standard Hotel
Alejandro Ingelmo kept it cool with his Fall 2013 accessory collection inspired by light. In a dark, long room, shoes and bags were displayed on clear platforms with tube lighting underneath, or on metallic plating on the floor. A simple neon-light display at the end of the room created an optical illusion seeming to allow the shoes to speak for themselves.
The men’s shoes were based in black with the use of petrol tones. High tops in alligator, ombre sneakers and updated boat shoe style boots kept me moving throughout the presentation.
The women were not left out with plenty of peep and closed toe heels. Lighter hues gave life to the deep oil colors and tin foil added texture to the metallic look. Intricate piping, cut outs and laces added to the silhouettes of the shoes.
