At Ines Gloves we love to collaborate with artists. Art makes the world an elegant place, and we surely feel strongly about elegance.

Its always a pleasure when Dutch stylist, fashion editor and photographer Ferry van der Nat is on the phone asking if he can come over to select some gloves for a photoshoot.

This time he was styling a photograph for the promotion of Pride Amsterdam 2016 and Eurovision Songfestival winner Conchita Wurst was going to star.

The gay pride in Amsterdam is always an amazing party - this city has a long tradition of not only tolerance but celebration of uniqueness and diversity in its community. The LGBTQ scene is alive and well and producing some of the most amazing advent-garde in style, fashion and art.

Conchita is an amazing singer and great LGBTQ icon - she's been winning over the heart of her fans since her amazing Eurovision performance.

This was to be kept a secret: nobody knew who the ambassador of Pride would be and every year the announcement is marked with a big event.

On the day of the shooting, a Sunday morning, I received a phone call from Ferry asking for gloves in different sizes and whether it was possible to deliver them asap. Something special was happening...

I biked to the Ines Gloves offices together with my daughter Anna to pick up the gloves and bring them over.


The shooting was taking place in a small studio along the Amsterdam canals. When we entered, the studio photographer Phillipe Vogelenzang was  already busy shooting portraits of Conchita.

After a nice chat with her manager, we had some time to meet Conchita.

She is very kind person and a amazing talent. A real star was standing there. And of course my little daughter was very impressed by her beard and her looks :)

The shooting produced wonderful images of Conchita, her striking image and her long Ines leather gloves.

And Anna was really impressed to have met such a  big celebrity!

We've had the pleasure to do more collaborations with her in these last 2 years... you can see some of the results here.

Always a pleasure, Conchita!

Gloves Sizing Chart


Find out your leather glove size

Measure around your hand with a tape just below your knuckles indicated on the diagram below.
You should use your dominant hand, the right if you are right-handed, and the left if you are left-handed.
If you have a size in between, choose the smaller size if you like tight gloves.
Unlined gloves have the ability to adjust to the shape of your own hand and arm.
For lined gloves round up to the nearest size.
NOTE: if you are unsure about the size please contact ines@inesgloves.com
