About The Designer

Cornelia James

Cornelia James had studied art and design in Vienna and arrived in England as a refugee in 1939. After the war, in a world made drab by rationing, the leather gloves that she made in a huge range of colours became fashion essentials. Vogue magazine profiled her as “the colour Queen of England” and Cornelia quickly established a thriving business supplying gloves to couturiers and leading stores. In 1947 Norman Hartnell asked Cornelia to provide the gloves for the 'going-away' outfit he made for Princess Elizabeth after her marriage to Lt. Philip Mountbatten. It marked the beginning of a long association with the Royal Household marked, in 1979, by the granting of a Royal Warrant. Today it is Genevieve James, Cornelia’s daughter, who holds the Warrant as glove manufacturer ‘by appointment to Her Majesty the Queen’.

Sometimes you can't improve on a classic and Esme is the living proof. A short glove in suede - three points on the back of the hand with fourchettes and welt in leather to provide a dash of contrast. Fashion is for the moment, true style is forever. Pure silk lining for extra comfort. Two button length gloves, meaning that the glove finishes two inches below the base of the thumb.

Made from pure suede with pure silk lining

Made in Italy

Specialist dry clean only

The gloves are die cut using a manually operated lever press made by WH Hallett & Sons of Yeovil, Somerset over 100 years ago. Not interested in mass production or section work, the Cornelia James team make a complete glove from start to finish so that they take ownership and so that each pair can be offered with pride.
