The holiday season is all about joy, and Chicago fashion guru Ikram Goldman is finding it an unexpected place: gloves. But not just any old pair: These are gloves from of-the-moment Tokyo-based accessories brand Piccke. Exquisitely packaged in a box adorned with lighthearted text (“Feeling Myself,” “The new freedom of gloves”), the gloves themselves deliver on that promise of delight with an assortment of embroidered gems, bracelets, stars, kittens and more that the wearer can iron on to create a completely personalized pair.
“They’re fabulous and full of spirit,” enthuses Goldman, noting the gloves’ beautiful lightweight wool material and exquisite detailing. “Every time you look at your hands or touch something, wearing these will put a smile on your face because they’re so fun. Look down, and there it is—a little happiness. It’s the perfect holiday accessory.” Price upon request, Ikram, 15 E. Huron St., 312.587.1000
