The problem with technology and fashion is that when the two are put together, it often makes you look like a Tron character, with all the awkwardness that involves. So it's refreshing to see a pair of leather gloves that integrate conductive material smoothly, in a design that's as unassuming as elegant.
Crafted from fine, water-resistant European lambskin leather, HONNS' gloves have a plush lining and a ribbed wool cuff to keep your paws warm inside and out. The fingers are also slightly curved, to mimic the natural shape of the hand ("Your fingers aren't flat, so why should your gloves be?", say the designers). The conductive material on the tip of the thumb and index fingers works well on touchscreen devices, and with a dozen of colors and patterns to choose from, you can play mix-and-match with your smartphone covers, too. So simple, yet so smart.
