This London-born brand was fashioned with a love for art and creation that started when founder, Aleksandra Kielpinska was just a kid. After studying at the Cavendish College and the London College of Fashion, Alexandra found herself hooked on a burgeoning fascination to create shoes using new and daring designs and materials. Surprised with the shortage of both designers and footwear she could really fall in love with (in one of the fashion capitals of the world, no less) she set out to create a brand that could live up to the city’s intrepid and lewd notoriety.
“Personal style is a form of self-invention. A statement we put out into the world to create the image we want for ourselves. Alex K. brings a line of handcrafted and handmade, fashion-forward shoes that are as loud and sexy as they should be. Made of quality materials that have ranged from horse hair and leather to rubber and metals, the brand strives to create new and inspiring possibilities while experimenting with innovative materials.”
Alex K.’s latest collections are entirely made in Spain and show a steadfast commitment to creating love-worthy shoes with a ethical approach to high fashion.
