Tom of Holland


“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.
