Coveted shoe designers tom gunn launch handbag collection
Stemming from the belief that shoes should be like works of art on your feet, Gabrielle Thompson and Shannon Gunn created tom gunn.
Luxury style for south of your ankle, these talented Brisbane ladies have now decided a little ‘art’ is needed amongst your hand-held and shoulder-draped wardrobe as well.
To complement the Autumn Winter 2012 footwear range, tom gunn is about to release three classic styles of lady bags – a cross-body satchel, carry-all tote and pouch-style clutch – in a bold palette of fuschia, mustard, pale gold, acid green, washed black tumble and chocolate.
Exuding precise detailing and craftsmanship, tom gunn has retained its high standards in materials, using calf, sheep and elephant tumble leathers, suede and pony skin, sourced from top tanneries and suppliers in Italy.
With their capsule shoe collection launched in 2008, the tom gunn pair have come a long way in such a short time, from training at the Ars Arpel School in Milan to transferring their signature aesthetic of pairing contrasting textiles and colours to chic bag designs.
For the daring, style-driven lady, these new hip companions are both statement-making and elegant, available at the tom gunn flagship store on James Street later this month.
