Gloves for city-biking
The German leather gloves and accessories brand Roeckl celebrates this year its 170th anniversary with a summer collection under the motto 'coquettish and chic'.
Very practical are the driving gloves for women; alongside to the elegant classical glove in stone color for driving with the car, two models even look good on city-bikes; the fingerless one (image on this page) is great for hot summer days on the bicycle or scooter.

This summer Roeckl presents three trend looks: Beauty, Sphere, and Spa.
Beauty is the erotic, frivolous and 'très chic' line with long semi-transparent gloves, fine silk foulards in colorful apricot, blush rose, coral and red in femme fatale style.
At the Sphere line you will find the light and neutral colors grey, taupe, stone and cloud. The motto is 'chic-ing, not shocking' for the understatement-look.
Spa is the line with the most freshness in colors: white and lime come along with a palette
of aquatones. The pieces are designed for the sportive style such as the gloves on this page.
