Since 1973, the company has outfitted celebrities from Busta Rhymes to Carol Channing, and its designs have added a sexy edge or rebellious kick to countless runway collections, magazine spreads, and publicity photos. Leopard print velour, hot pink fishnet, and gauntlet-cuffed women's styles hang alongside men’s driving gloves in colors like electric blue and canary yellow. Cuts range from sleek opera lengths to punky fingerless mitts, with one pissed-off pair sporting only a middle finger. More reserved tastes are represented, too: White kid gloves with faux pearl buttons are fashioned for debutante balls; brides can choose from white satin and hand-knotted lace; and white cotton gloves are available for people in uniform. Although long or custom-made leather gloves can run $100 to $200 or more, the overall reasonable prices, especially on lace and fabric models, add to these gloves' allure.
