No. Deepest apologies. Tom Gunn is more of a sandal than a scandal. It is a brand of shoes from the land down under by co-designers Gabrielle Thompson and Shannon Gunn. I’m a little concerned that the name is so close to our favorite motivational fashion consultant, but if Prada, Costume National, Marni and Gucci are all using these heels, I’m sure they’ll make it work.
Tom Gunn uses the finest Italian leathers and exotic skins. They did study the craft at the Ars Arpel School in Milan, after all. They’ve created an array of heights from the disco-clog-platform sandal to the flat jazzy lace ups. The creamy pumps have an angular jut of color, and the heel is cut like a diamond. The skin sneaking cutouts at the bottom lean a little gladiator, but they seem to look future-ward rather than back.
I think Tim Gunn would approve of what’s going on here. Carry on.
