International human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, who is observed the world over for her sense of style, has ordered several pairs of Ennio Mecozzi footwear. The Italian label is currently one of her favorites.
The 37-year-old barrister opted to wear a pair of "Emma" black and nude pumps with a low heel and gold buckle detailing for her first day back at work after the summer. It surged a huge interest in the brand.
The shoes are handmade in Marche -- the shoemaking region of the country. They are famed for their high quality materials and classic designs. Irish fashion entrepreneur Anita Flavin has collaborated with the Italian shoemaker, which launched last spring.
One of the leaders in the international luxury footwear industry, Flavin has secured a role as creative director of the luxury brand. She has brought over 25 years of experience in the footwear industry. She previously ran her own labels Minette and Neet.
The Irish woman was formerly a buyer at high street shoe store office and retailer John Lewis, before pursuing her own ventures. Among Flavin’s new clientele is Amal Clooney, Hollywood actor George Clooney’s wife.
“She has ordered several other pairs too so we are obviously thrilled she is such a fan of the brand,” a representative for the footwear company told Independent.ie Style. Earlier, Clooney saw the lookbook, went to the website, loved the shoes and ordered three pairs of Ennio, the designer said.
However, Amal is not the only celeb who has taken an instant love with Flavin’s designs. “Poppy Delevingne received a copy of our lookbook and she replied to say she loved it and would like to order the ‘Poppy’ style shoes and bag,” said the designer. She added that Ennio was currently making the shoes and they would be sent to both Amal and Poppy.
Poppy is a model and older sister of British model turned actress Cara Delevingne.
Meanwhile, Amal has displayed her excellent fashion taste right from her wedding party shoes in Venice in September 2014. Her Vince cognac leather sandals, Giambattista Valli black patent and nude satin slingbacks, and her LK Bennett ‘Cannes’ laser-cut blush leather courts showed off her fancy footwear .
Amal’s shoes are available for 390 euros ($ 440.80).
