Vintage gloves from Cornelia James behind advent calendar door #10




In the 1950s gloves were absolutely necessary for every woman - no matter if she wore white cotton gloves during the day (they were so easy to wash, not like lace or leather - and we all know how beautiful white is but how afraid we often are to wear this colour!) or if she needed long gloves in the evening or all the colours to match the outfits.

Cornelia James is a glove maker from England. Or should I say from Vienna - she came to England in 1939 as a refugee and started to make gloves that became an essential, also for the royal family.

Giving an evening look different looks:


Melody Duchess Satin glove with a ballerina ‘tutu’ cuff and Swarovski crystals

for an iconic look.


Henrietta elbow length cotton glove

for a timeless elegant appearance.








For me gloves make every look complete - they even make every look perfect when you find the best suitable pair for your style! They protect like a hat and they are as beautiful as a hat - both give every outfit a complete new look. Gloves from Cornelia James fit perfectly - but that has a reason: every single glove is made from the brand directly in England. Also the fabrics are high quality and you can see where they come from when you read about your favourite gloves on the website.

You can be sure to get new favorites that last a lifetime!
