Peter O'Brien gloves for Arnotts

Aww, now I am all over these beauties: Lily Langtry, anyone? 

New to Peter O'Brien's capsule edit at Arnotts, three glove styles styles created from Italian leather will be available in a trio of shades in two lengths. Hand-stitching and laser cut details mark them out and no, they're not cheap; short gloves are €120, while the longer ones (pictured) are €140.

Here's what just might sell it to you though: each pair comes in a gift box complete with a postcard featuring a sketch of the gloves from Peter himself. Sweet, and a gift for someone who really does have everything.

They are gorgeous! I'm off to Arnotts shopping. I love a good pair of gloves and damn the expense - they will be well worn. Any ideas what the three colours are? And do the gloves comes in sizes? (I'm a 6 in a glove myself - quite small hands).

a nude, black and not sure what the 3rd is. There was no mention of sizes, good question!

These are gorgeous. I think I'd just leave them in the box and admire them.

Oh the fabulousness. The fantabulous fabulousness. I adore that style with buttons on the sides. I have to see them in person :)

I recently bought a pair of Paula Rowan gloves in a similiar style, in dark purple. I've been promising myself a pair of leather gloves for years and these are lined with cashmere and I love them! Will this weather ever get colder, dammit!
