ABOUT FST HANDWEAR /
FST Handwear is breaking the mould and shaking the word of glovers by creating the first streetwear glove.
Based in Grenoble, historical capital of the glove making industry, 3 young designers have rethought the glove as a unique artistic prop.
The trend is similar to the one sneakers or tee-shirts experienced. In a few decades they became an undeniable mode of expression. The glove is now taking its turn in becoming a form of differentiation.
From the offset, FST seduced the snow and ski world through the mischievous approach of its first collection Fall/Winter 0809 boasting bright colours and bold prints. The riders welcomed those gloves : a new urban accessory infused with the board culture.
Following this success, FTS increased its Team Majeur, its range and its distribution network.
The new collection Fall/Winter 0910 will be available in more than 200 shops in France, in Europe and in Japan.
