GLOVES CODE and SHORT STORY



All signs of luxury were prohibited during the French Revolution of 1789 ! Therefore gloves being a symbol of wealth were forbidden.The French had to wait for their first French Empress(1804/ 1809) Jos├ęphine de Beauharnais , Napoleon Ist  first wife, to put on gloves again. She was buying 1000 pairs a year and would never use the same pair again.


Then Early 20th Century Galeries Lafayette department store in Paris opened and dedicated a complete section to gloves attracting Ladies from all over the world. 


In the 50's Women were wearing gloves like hats custom. No one of them would show outside of their homes without gloves on without feeling nude. When gloves were not on they had to be held in hands.
Day gloves were in light colors from grey, white to beige and made of cotton or nylon not leather.
After the 50's gloves became more a fashion accessory.
