Tom Gunn Shoes Bloggers Event

I met Gabrielle Thompson and Shannon Gunn of Tom Gunn shoes at Capsule Show in New York this week.  Last night they invited bloggers to view current and forthcoming styles at the Fashion Indie loft in Manhattan.

An Australian label, Tom Gunn designs are already well established in Oz and have been featured in Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Grazia and InStyle.

At Capsule, this pair above drew my stylist friend Verena like honey to a bee… The word that sums up the Tom Gunn signature aesthetic? Probably ‘edgy’, maybe ‘unique.  Shoes are individually styled but incorporate mixed textures and contrasting colours within a design

They also source their leather and skins carefully, from suppliers in Italy.  Gabrielle and Shannon trained at the Ars Arpel School in Milan and launched their label together in 2008.  Their first Australian boutique opened in 2011, coinciding with the release of their Autumn Winter collection:

I was blown away by the designs for their forthcoming collections.  Even the colour excited me (no mean feat, considering my penchant for monochrome). I’m coveting this pair for next summer, the perfect “go with anything” heel:
