Duecci Gloves from Italy

I came across the brand "Duecci" while at Pure London in August. "Duecci" literally means two Cs because the last name of the designers is Colonna so the initial C has been given to the label by their father when they were born. Their gloves are absolutely fantastic, remember that Naples has got an old tradition in the gloves manufacturing and many of these factories are held by families for generations. Duecci is one of these factories where the making of gloves has started in 1930 with the designers' great grandfather.
This pair of gloves in teal with orange trimming is absolutely beautiful. The leather is so soft and I love the colours chosen. It is not the usual pair of gloves, it has got a twist to it. All the material used are the best nappa, suede, patent leather, pony skin, wool, silk and the details are fantastic with lace inserts or little chains added to the pieces in order to give them an edge.
This collection of gloves are for the AW season in black leather and details such Prince of Wales fabric for a more theatrical effect. The long gloves are perfect worn with a 3/4 sleeve jacket for a style that remind me of those beautiful black and white films with Audrey Hepburn or Doris Day.
This pair of purple gloves with the jewelled details at the wrist are one of my favourite models. Duecci has got a lot of experience having supplied gloves for the likes of  Armani, Gianfranco Ferre', Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and Burberry just to name a few. Everything is made in Italy.
In order to embrace the Gothic look, very strong for the coming season this collection shows models in black leather with chains and studs from long gloves to the ones just covering part of your hands. Duecci will be at the luxury lifestyle event " The Bloomsbury Set" at the Central Baptiste Church at 235 Shaftesbury Avenue WC2H 8EP, so if any buyers or bloggers missed them at Pure they've got the opportunity to see the collection on the 13th and 14th of September.
These sorbet colours are gorgeous and they will be great worn next year in spring and summer. These gloves are the final touch to the whole outfit and this line can be considered as jewellery rather than just gloves that are generally relegated in the colder months. To know more about this brand that hopefully will be stocked in UK soon you can check the website at www.duecciguanti.it
