For four generations in Saint-Junien in the Haute-Vienne region, the tradition of making gloves has been passed from generation to generation at Ganterie Agnelle. Itï¿½s no wonder that today Ganterie Agnelle is a real benchmark of tradition, luxury and exception, distributed in the best shops and department stores in the world. For years, Agnelle has also been quietly working with couturiers and designers to realize their most outlandish creations. But itï¿½s also a company turned toward tomorrow, under the direction of Sophie Grï¿½goire. Since 1986, this great-granddaughter of the founder has campaigned on all fronts to make the glove a peerless fashion accessory.
Some seventy years after its creation, Agnelle is one of the best-known French glove brands. The Agnelle collections are distributed through five hundred doors in France, including department stores Le Bon Marchï¿½ and Galeries Lafayette, in Paris and nationwide. Outside France, roughly two hundred sales points are divided between fifteen countries.
In parallel, the collaborations with luxury brands, couture houses and talented designers continue to prosper. From Jean Paul Gaultier to John Galliano, via Christian Dior, Lanvin, Francesco Smalto, Celine, Nina Ricci, Guy Laroche, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Kenzo, Marithï¿½&Franï¿½ois Girbaud, Marc Jacobs, Agnï¿½s b, Bensimon, Isabel Marant, Roger Vivier, Avril Gau, Barbara Bui: each turns to the talents of the Agnelle glove makers to create gloves that, on a catwalk, in an advert, or in a magazine editorial, will be an outfitï¿½s key accessories.
