The brand Armèlle was founded out of the vision and passion to reinvent fashion gloves. Leather gloves and mittens of all forms have always been a huge part of fashion history. But as the time has gone on, the cultural relevance of the centuries-old tradition of making and wearing leather gloves has almost been forgotten. Being seen nowadays only as part of seasonal outfits or even worn just out of utilitarian reasons. Something that Armèlle is eager to change.
As a brand we create and refine the idea of the centuries-old tradition of gloves making with a future-oriented approach to bring fashionable leather gloves into the 21st century, as perfect and beautiful accessories for everyday life and special occasions.
Gloves were and still are one of the strongest accessories in fashion, and we wanted to find a way to transmit this strong feeling, but making them at the same time more relevant in terms of practicality. Since usual pairs of gloves are mainly focused to be worn outdoors or while being on the road and are mostly taken off for indoor events, Armèlle gloves are dedicated to change the classical full covered gloves cut and focus purely on fingerless gloves. Our premise is not to hide the hands but to embellish them, make them part of a fashion statement and to enforce ones individual style.
We make leather gloves, fine leather accessories, that can and want to be worn on any occasion, even being gloves, because they are fingerless and don’t have to be removed. Making some models even suitable to wear with rings and other pieces of jewelry.
Who runs Armèlle?
Armèlle is a story of passion and two generations who cannot imagine their everyday life without fashion. A family owned business, which is primarily run by its two generations, mother and son.
One generation who has always been enthusiastic about extravagant accessories. Creating her own style rules and having a soft spot for sparkling accessories. In the 90s she moved to Spain.
The next generation, a young artist, and traveler with strong and clear visions, who lets his creativity flow through photography and art.
