Diversity may sound not really familiar when it comes to leather gloves. But there’s different types of gloves to mention and take consideration.
The craft of glove making is an ancient practice of thousands of years. Leather gloves are originally produced to protect the hands in cold weather or for use in manual labour. Over time they become a symbol of elegance, distinction, of a superior social class. But gloves weren’t always a wealthy stuff after all.
It was the look of that period. Elegance was the most important word in fashion. Tidy hairstyle, minimal hair accessory (maybe a hat), perfect lines in the dress, the suit and the gloves were the must-have items of a wardrobe.
Iconic Hollywood stars contributed to keep the gloves tradition in fashion between 1950s and 1960s.
