Gloves have become the hero of the runway.
Of course, gloves have a practical use, they keep your digits warm and toasty. However, there has also been a fashion revival of this underrated accessory over the years. No longer just for winter outings or for debutante balls – gloves are a fashion statement.
The latest runway shows have seen the humble glove soar to new heights.
Louis Vuitton’s leather gloves have a classic, old-school way about them. The proportions are exaggerated though, creating a scrunching effect that adds visual interest, making the glove becomes more of a statement.
David Koma & Valentino
David Koma was inspired by space travel, so his snugly-fit gloves have a more utilitarian feel to them. In contrast, Valentino’s Haute Couture takes a more editorial approach for a brightly colored, elbow-length glove. Creative Designer Pierpaolo Piccoli was inspired by the uniqueness of the times and wanted to showcase the bespoke nature of garment making. This pair feels like one of a kind.
Schiaparelli keeps a couture edge and this pair of gloves is no exception. There is a charming absurdity to the oversized pair that is typical of the house. Beyoncé also wore a more refined, custom pair of Schiaparelli gloves to the 63rd Grammys.
LaQuan Smith can make anything sexy. This pair of sleek fitting gloves adds a layer of sensual luxury to the outfit.
Prada Men and Women’s Wear gives an update on classic leather gloves in these vivid colors. Notice the zippered pouch on the back of the male model’s glove, this utilitarian detail appeared in both the Mens and Womenswear Shows.
Miu Miu elevates the gloves we probably all grew up wearing as kids. The chunky, soft-knit gloves likely helped the models stay warm during their shoot in the Dolomites Alps.
Even fingerless gloves made an appearance in Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2021. These look cool and edgy without feeling dated.
The aforementioned designers each put their spin on a classic pair of gloves. The fact that this accessory can feel cozy or commanding, sexy or playful, shows its versatility. It offers designers a chance to reinvent a staple. Even better, the simple addition of a pair of gloves adds a layer of complexity to these collections.
We’re convinced that a statement pair is just the thing we need to reimagine our wardrobe.END
