Parthènope was a Greek sub-colony built between Mount Vesuvius and the Phlegraean Fields in the eighth century BC by the inhabitants of Cuma. Later then it became Neapolis at the end of the sixth century BC.
This masterpiece has been crafted as a tribute to our Neapolitan roots. Paying homage to luxury car exterior and interior styling, our brand new driving gloves made of buttery soft lambskin nappa leather with sumptuous quilted suede detailing, are reminiscent of the racing green exteriors of old with rich beige fabric interiors. This innovative new concept seamless glove, entirely hand crafted in Italy and developed by our most experienced craftsman, envelops the hand with one panel of leather joined together to a central quilted suede insert, thereby avoiding any side panel stitching. The perforated palm also allows for optimum breathability of theleather whilst the bicolor strap with nickel button snap is the ultimate finishing touch.
As a nod to our ethos of contemporary tradition, we have created this modern seamless glove with the addition of rarely seen quirks to the inside finger fourchettes. Quirks are a centuries-old tradition whereby an extra “V-shape” leather gusset is stitched to the base of the fourchettes allowing more movement and better shaping to the fingers. This perfect combination of luxury leathers, new concept design and traditional stitching techniques makes this pair of gloves distinctly unique.
