NEEDED | GLOVES
NO LONGER EXCLUSIVELY FOR SNOW DAYS AND CONCIERGES — THEY’RE FOR THE FASHIONABLE STREET STYLE SET, TOO
Gloves are having a moment in fashion, transitioning from practical garments to avant-garde accessories. Designers like Marine Serre and LaQuan Smith have been teasing opera-length gloves on the runway. The humble glove is transforming into an art form, with designers using them as a medium to comment on the state of our lives.
Seymoure Gloves is a new luxury glove brand that specializes in sustainably crafted leather gloves reminiscent of vintage driving gloves. Seymoure gloves are washable, durable, and made for fresh, fashionable practicality. They are designed for the on-the-go woman who wants guilt-free glove-wearing.
Smaller designers, like Alaa Bint Hashim, have also been experimenting with gloves, playing around with sheer, delicate gloves since her 2019 launch. The trickle-across effect of street style and social media has inspired designers to look to the streets for inspiration. The 2010s punk-rock arm sock and matching skinny scarf are seeing a resurgence in popularity, as are dresses with matching gloves that create the illusion of a sleeve.
Rubber gloves are also being used in fashion photography for editorial styling, offering vinyl texture and rubbery contrast against fine jewelry pieces like rings and bracelets. This cheeky twist on the cleaning product commercials of 2020 is a playful jab at the protective garments trend.
The glove trend takes something practical and turns it into wearable art that comments on the state of our lives. Seymoure Gloves and other designers are filling niches in the glove market with slow fashion and sustainable practices. Gloves are no longer just for protection from the cold or germs, they are a statement piece that can elevate any outfit.
