Models Direct: Gloves with a twist

Fashion and jewellery designer Anna-Sara Dåvik featured these gloves in her autumn/winter 2009/10 collection, and Brazilian model Alice Dellal has been seen out and about in a pair, but what do you think of these gloves?

The gloves have fake nails attached to the outside of them, which to me, seems a little strange. I can’t help but think of monster-like gloves that children have in their dressing up boxes!

I suppose sticking fake nails to your gloves is a cheaper alternative to a manicure, but I don’t think it will catch on. She also created some 18 carat fake nails that are made like rings to fit on the top of your fingers.

I’d never heard of Anna-Sara Dåvik until I discovered this creation so I decided to have a look at some of her work. I wasn’t really sure what to expect but I liked what I found, especially her Autumn/Winter 2006 collection. She uses quite a lot of pale, earthy colours and creates oversized outfits that just look really comfy. The catwalk at Stockholm Fashion Week was scattered with flowers which suited the 2009 collection perfectly.
