Founded in 2008, the THOMASINE luxury accessories brand has challenged traditional craftsmanship by creating a new style of gloves.
Concept identities of “gloves like soft jewellery” and “a blooming garden of gloves” have given the brand continues features in the international fashion press and the brand’s creations have been exhibited in prestigious museums all around the world.
Important couture collaborations are made parallel to the ready-to-wear collection with major French fashion houses, the Paris National Opera, cinema productions and contemporary artists.
The founder, the Swedish couturière of gloves Thomasine Barnekow lives and works between the historical heart of Paris and her family's estate Sinclairsholm in Skåne.
Graduated in conceptual product design at Li Edelkoort’s Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands and selected as a talent at the Italian fashion competition ITS#SIX introduced her to a carrier within the French luxury glove industry.
The French luxury association Centre du Luxe et de la Création nominated Thomasine in 2018 and in 2022 to “Talent of Invention” for her design work of gloves.
Thomasine was invited to curate the solo exhibition “Rendez-Vous au Jardin d’Hiver” that celebrated her ten years of glove design. A travelling exhibition, that is a testimony of the challenge to inspire a traditional craftsmanship by creating a new dream of gloves.
