OK, so initially I wasn't overly keen on Helen Mirren accessorizing her gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana dress with leather gloves, but three days is a long time in fashion. Since I discovered they were made by Irish designer, Paula Rowan (an expert in, ahem, 'glovemaking'), I've spent an awful lot of time cruising the website and have come to the conclusion that if I owned a pair, I wouldn't want to take them off either.
Here are some of my favourites:
Gotta love the animal print, though I can imagine Ines de la Fressange in chic navy leather.
And, I'd quite like to find this elbow-length sheepskin pair in my Christmas stocking. Cosy.
Paula Rowan has a pair of black studded leather men's gloves (I know, I'll say no more) called Ronnie Wood, so I think it's about time Helen Mirren had a style named after her. Don't you?
