The Thomasine Gloves are works of wearable art for the hands. The perfect match for sculptural millinery creations, these designs transcend over the practical and functional for something almost purely decorative. More akin to jewelry than anything else, the Thomasine Gloves could be framed and hung in the home. In fact, people can find them beautifully encased at Stockholm's stylish Lydmar Hotel.

Strikingly envisioned by Thomasine Barnekow, who graduated from the prestigious Design Academy Eindhoven in 2006, the Thomasine Gloves have put her on the couture map. Fashioned at her atelier in Paris, France, the Thomasine Gloves are set to have a stronger presence in the United States with her official web shop launching this fall. She reveals, "I had never imagined myself in the field of gloves nor in fashion, but I have always loved textiles and jewelry." Stats for Delicately Sculptural Gauntlets Trending: Older & Buzzing
