Any story with the Eiffel Tower as its backdrop catches our attention, so we were instantly intrigued with a write-up of Parisian rainwear line Wanda Nylon in this month's Vogue (page 190, for you fellow glossy hoarders.) But we were even more delighted with the photo credit, which listed Elements as the spot to buy the line's fashion-forward gloves.
We contacted a store rep, who let us know that the gloves just came in...today! Staffers were kind enough to open the box and send the first product snapshot on over to us, et voila. Here they are, in all their rain-ready, color-blocked glory. The gloves retail for $210.
