Tom of Holland

glove8x10 "Reading Gloves" brought together two of Tom of Holland's interests - knitting and romantic fiction. Together with his talent for making intricate gloves, the window display was comprised of short extracts from several novels accompanied by respective  hand wear representations of the main characters. L.T. Tolstoy's Anna Karenina was displayed alongside a fine black lacework pair of longsleeved gloves in Shetland Ultra Cobweb. The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde was comprised of two parts - the immaculate gloves of youth and beauty below a framed photo of a pair of aged decreptit gloves. Lady Chatterley's Lover by D.H. Laurence inspired two pairs of gloves, a coarse gardener's pair and a delicate lady's pair. Tom of Holland's website is here.
