These gloves, inspired by Viven Leigh, have a ribbon threaded through them which allows you to gather the cuff as Vivien Leigh’s most famous character, Scarlett O’Hara, would have done with her infamous curtains. The wrist slit, when unbottoned, allows the gloves to slide easily over the hand, but when buttoned, shows off slim wrists.
