I’m all about upping my accessories game, and what better way to add a finishing touch to an outfit than with gloves? So when Cornelia James reached out I jumped at the chance to give them a try. Arriving in the UK as a refugee in 1939, Cornelia quickly made herself a hit by adding pops of colour to a post-war fashion scene with her leather gloves. After supplying the gloves for the wedding of Princess Elizabeth to Lt. Philip Mountbatten in 1947 Cornelia’s relationship with the royal household began, with a Royal Warrant granted in 1979. Cornelia’s daughter Genevieve now continues to run the business using traditional methods and the highest quality materials. Read on to find out more about the gloves I chose for this post, the India fine net gloves in ivory.
The India gloves are the sweetest wrist-length gloves made in an ivory fine net from St Gallen in Switzerland. These beauties immediately caught my eye as they’re particularly complementary to a vintage ensemble, and they’re so nice and light for the hot summer weather we’ve been having. Plus the bows at the wrists are delightful! Like all Cornelia James gloves these are made with such high attention to detail and care – did you know that 8 foot of stitching goes into each pair of gloves? They also come in a very luxurious pale green box with a pink ribbon, perfect for storage or a gift.
