Hand in Glove
Don't let the title fool you, this has nothing to do with the Johnny Marr v David Cameron tweet-off and everything to do with looking good and keeping warm. Over the last week I've come to the conclusion that anything prefaced with the word long; long socks, long gloves, long johns, is well worth investing in. And these gorgeous elbow-length cashmere gloves - the result of a clever collaboration between E + J cashmere and the French jeweler, Marie-Hélène de Taillac, whose beautiful rings have been realised by the legendary Parisian haute couture embroiderers, Lesage - make the perfect day-to-evening wrist warmers. So perfect in fact, that I might even keep them on in bed. Bed gloves, now there's an idea.
E + J stands for Emanuela Calvi and Jane Cattani, two longtime friends and fashion experts (Jane used to work for Sonia Rykiel), behind the Italian cashmere company, creating clothes for 30+ women.
And now let's take a closer look at the lovely ring detail:
