Made-to-Measure gloves in Paris: Mary Beyer

Mary and Greta Beyer in their Palais Royal shop.

Dear Shaded Viewers,

A few season's ago I met Mary Beyer at a Rick Owens show, she makes the gloves for Rick. That season he showed the most amazing long gloves sliced with fur. I fell in love with them. Of course, what she produces for Rick is Rick's but you can come in to her shop and choose from many of her designs or design your own pair of gloves and they will be yours in about three weeks. Not only can you design your own made-to-measure gloves but if in time they need to be refreshed or repaired, you just bring them back. They have an interesting form that the gloves slide onto and they can be steamed back into shape. To have your measurements taken:
