One of the things I love most about Winter is all of the additional accessories you need to wrap up in. Gloves are one of those wonderful Winter must haves. This season we have noticed how the glove has been elevated above its status as a purely functional item. There are some super duper stunners out there, some more practical than others, but all rather tempting never the less.
We were particularly struck by some super stylish options we saw when we were in Paris. There are two brands in particular that are pretty outstanding when it comes to gorgeous gloves. First is Maison Fabre, a family business with a longstanding history. Launched in 1924, this ‘Artisan Gantier’ works with the likes of Vanessa Bruno, Karl Largerfeld and Chanel. The second is Mary Beyer, a new discovery for us, and the Palais Royale store is an absolute delight. Using vintage forms and age old techniques, Beyer creates stunningly modern, yet romantic looks.
These French labels are pretty much offering glove couture, so if you’re not quite up to those kind of spends, the high street is also doing a pretty great job of reworking this cold weather staple with style.
