Homage to home: Toms x Prabal Gurung

From Nepal with love

Homage to home: Toms x Prabal Gurung
Toms and Prabal Gurung have teamed up to give back to Nepal with a collaborative collection of ardour, compassion, and a whole lot of heart

Representing a continued effort to give back to his motherland, Prabal Gurung is paying it forward with a heartfelt Nepal-inspired shoe range with philanthropic shoe company, Toms. Combining his global-minded style and altruistic zeal, the Nepal-raised designer looked to his country’s rich cultural and historical background as inspiration. 

The lineup features four styles, all taking on signature Prabal hues — red, black, and white. From classic canvas slip-ons to shearling-lined booties in authentic Nepali prints, the range serves as a true celebration of the colourful heritage of Nepal. 

Alongside the efforts of Gurung’s charity, the Shikshya Foundation Nepal, Toms will donate USD$5 to the charity for every pair of Toms x Prabal Gurung shoes sold, in support of education for children, as well as aid relief in Nepal.

"What excites me about collaborating with TOMS is our shared belief in inspiring others and giving back. We’re coming together to make a difference in the world by what we do,” says Gurung.
