These gloves, inspired by Lauren Bacall, have a series of chevron pleats, that give the gloves the refined, sophisticated city-dweller feel that so many of Lauren’s characters exuded. The wrist slit, when unbottoned, allows the gloves to slide easily over the hand, but when buttoned, shows off slim wrists.
