Couture gloves bring back the intimate glamour
Apr '09
The fashion industry is falling in "glove"...with Couture Gloves by Miss Numa. Producing far from the ordinary glove, Numa Perrier is creating couture.

It is true -- in decades past, no sophisticated woman would socialize with naked hands. A pair of gloves was simply part of the complete outfit for classic Hollywood starlets such as Vivienne Leigh, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Numa is bringing back the intimate glamour that cocktail gloves represent. "In the past, no well-dressed woman would leave home without her gloves," says Perrier. "I am not seeking to reclaim that tradition, but rather revitalize what was lost with it...the attributes of femininity and mystery."

For her latest collection, Perrier created a line of contemporary gloves out of the desire to have a beautiful, sensual and classic accessory -- void of necessity or function. Believing that couture gloves are non-seasonal, her designs have a Day and Night series. These petite works of art serve as an expression of femininity: sensual, luxurious, and refined. Her trademark combination of fine satin silks, lace, and leather create a blend of sophistication, while the intricate detailing evokes the simple pleasures of feminine fascination and delight.

One of fashion's best-kept secrets, her "Little Black Glove" has become equally as necessary -- and iconic -- as the sophistication of the Little Black Dress. Numa believes every closet should hold both the LBD and LBG (Little Black Glove). Infusing the feminine magic back into couture glove making, her alluring charisma has generated a loyal and growing following.

These "glovers" are enchanted with her sassy, yet timeless, accessories. "My gloves are about touching people, connecting to them and helping them connect with others -- all while being dressed beautifully," says Perrier. "The glove protects, conceals, and reveals all at the same time... the way a woman should be!"
