Isn't this a clever and whimsical reuse of ladies gloves? These are by a South African Artist, Denise Kiggan:
And then I saw The September Issue, this weekend and in it, Grace Coddington considers an over the top couture black dress...with fuschia gloves appliqued across the front. The scene came and went in a flash so I can't recall the designer. Please let me know if you see the movie --which is worth seeing -- but not for any more insight on Anna Wintour but for a view inside the corridors of Vogue and a real hats off to Grace Coddingtonand her artistry.
