There were certain accessories woman of substance was never seen without, well at least a century ago, and a few trend setting houses are resurrecting some of those historical anachronism accessories for Spring 2009 starting with the day glove. The Rodarte sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy have always been prone to historical flights of fancy so its little surprise that we first picked up the trend there but when Consuelo Castiglioni showed it on the Marni catwalk we really perked up, and we declared it an official emerging trend when it appeared on Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel catwalk. But the most curious place we saw it? Alessandra Facchinetti had jeweled day gloves for Valentino. We guess all that trend setting must have been too much for the house of Valentino.
Life is A Dirty Job So Wear Gloves
