Arty accessories: curiosity gloves


Accessories designers, hoping for another cold winter, have put great efforts in to creating unique gloves for the coming season. Longer length leather gloves are becoming especially popular, even for daytime wear. In general, glove designs are becoming quirkier and more individual, as current fashion themes and key trends are reflected in curiosity styling and wearable art.



Yang Du’s colourful knitted gloves (above) feature clowns and animal heads on the fingers. For lovers of curious mittens, she’s also created a matching range of characterful glove puppets.


Clemency London’s gloves are embellished with unusual metal pin starburst designs.
