Gloves have accompanied us from immemorial times, making continuous transitions from symbol to functional object, and today they give us a very rich history.
We want to share with you a fundamental aspect of this accessory: style and what is each model can express compared to another and how you can use them to distinguish yourself.
To do this and to simplify the story, we divide the gloves into three categories.
(We refer to handcrafted leather gloves, but for at least the first two of these categories, the distinction may also be referred to fabric gloves)
With them you play with color:
To underline a sober personality and a bon ton look, refined, perhaps sophisticated but not yelled.
To emphasize a more eccentric personality, with a more lively or fun look,
depending on the colors’ combinations.
This category includes all those models of gloves that have any particularity:
special seams or stitching, fur cuffs, fringes, studs, zippers, contrasting forks.
To recommend a look for this category of gloves is very complicated, given the multiplicity of possible combinations.
Let's say that 2 rules to be kept in mind:
- to choose more or less showy patterns according to your style
- to look for combinations or references with the garments that we decide to match.
These are highly distinctive styles because they are already in the collective imaginary.
When you see them, there is no need to make too many arguments, they immediately recall a memory, an image, an idea, a symbol.
First of all the driving gloves, with tray on the back of the hand and punctures on the knuckles.
Half-finger gloves, a model derived from the driving model but more suitable for cycling
12 ” long gloves - Jessica Rabbit style - for a more provocative look and the 6” long gloves - Audrey Hepburn style - for a more refined look.
