  1. in the beginning . . . .
    i've been looking for driving gloves, a la victoria beckham, for about 6 months now:
    [​IMG]

    the search literally went high and low, from the cheap shops in chinatown to chanel and even hermes . . . still i couldn't find the one magic pair that looked exactly as i had envisioned! (to be honest, i don't even *quite* like victoria's enough to buy them :sweatdrop:

    finally, one day, i threw down the gauntlet and resolved to do one last search online, after which i would foresake the driving glove quest forever!

    lo and behold . . . on page 12 of the search results

    SUCCESS!!! :yahoo:

    . . . .BUT. the company was in sweden. they don't distribute in the U.S. :crybaby:

    undaunted, i emailed the company through the website and began a correspondence with their very kind and accomodating customer service man, who later revealed that he is also the husband of the designer! can't get more mom & pop than that! throughout the past week, we'd been trying to work out some way for me to pay him, but had yet to reach any simple solution . . .

    so we hadn't yet quite figured out how i am to get a payment thru for the gloves when a package arrives at my office. an AIRMAIL package?? hmmm . . . .

    opened it up and found . . . .

    that's right! 1 pair of black suede and 1 pair of creamy ivory nappa leather driving gloves! you have no idea, the leather is just divine - buttery soft and supple!

  3. Fabulous!! You need to spill as to the name....like you I can't find any I like. Dents did a couple of styles for winter but the fit was atrocious
     
  4. But brand was yours? It looks lovely! I love the look of driving gloves, and I can't wait for Tod's to come out with their version - they ALWAYS do driving gloves every year.

    The one that Victoria Beckham has is by Gucci.
     
  5. LOVE the suede pair where? what? who? how much? I think i need them and i just bought Hermes gloves.
     
  6. Those are BEYOND fabulous. I love them! I wish that they were easy to order. I would really like to get an ivory pair.
     
  7. helllooo dearests! the brand is called "fancy fanny," but unfortunately they don't distribute to the U.S. :crybaby:

    these 2 pairs were the remainder he had from the spring season's collection, and he said they don't do many driving gloves in winter as it's too cold.

    *however* he has promised me a black nappa leather pair next spring season, so I'll definitely post when that collection comes out so everyone can share the excitement :tup:
     
  8. I'm so happy for you! Congrats!
     
  9. Great, thanks for the info
     
  10. very chic!
     
  11. yaay!! great story and they look fab on you!!!
     
  12. Did I read this right? He sent them to you for free? You're such a lucky girl ^^

    They look really nice too
     
  13. haha no, not for free . . . . i'm still waiting for them to have the black nappa available again, so he just told me not to worry abt payment until he has them, since those were the ones i originally asked for :yes:
     
  14. The gloves are super cool. Will you wear them like VB, just as a fashion accessory?
     
  15. I want driving gloves!! where do you get them? Im sick of wearing mywinter leather gloves when Im driving.
