Oh, how I long for those perfect, quilted driving gloves.

What is the general consensus on fingerless gloves these days? Michael Jackson, Karl Lagerfeld and Lindsay Lohan all wear them to pretentious effect, but I am shameless in my adoration of these decorative wrist coverings and make new ones for myself every week. Do you share my passion, or should these be left to weight lifters and race car drivers?

>> Here is Evelyne, the Canadian designer of White Label, expressing her love for gloves...

I am a huge fan myself, but feel a bit awkward even though I wish I didn't. They are perfect if you can pull them off effortlessly.

I can't say that I would ever don them myself, but I've begun to reconsider leather gloves upon seeing this video:

Weight lifters, race car drivers, Michael Jackson and Karl Lagerfeld. In my very own opinion, I think they the only ones that can pull off those fingerless gloves.

Cheers Carissa for passing on the Fashion Minute video I produced with White Label. The designer, Evelyne, makes absolutely gorgeous (and surprisingly versatile!), fingerless gloves. You're right Marega - they're NOT for everyone.

I'll be posting more original interviews/designer profiles soon on www.fashionminute.blogspot.com
