Discover one of the best collections of gloves in the world – The Glove Collection of the Worshipful Company of Glovers of London, cared for and housed at the Fashion Museum.

This exhibition features exquisite examples of historical gloves from the past 400 years, many of which have never been displayed to the public before.

Highlights include beautiful embroidered gauntlet gloves from the 1600s, a curious pair of gloves in a walnut shell from the 1830s, and the Duke of Edinburgh’s carriage-driving gloves.

The exhibition also touches on outer space with a Soviet cosmonaut’s glove and a costume glove from the Star Wars film The Empire Strikes Back.
