Grandoe and Icon Pair Up for Artful Collection


Gloversville, NY and New York—Warm your toes in a Van Gogh landscape? Stave off the chill with a Cheval? Keep toasty and warm in the cold with a Klimt?

Yes, a veritable art gallery of cold weather gear will be available at retail this fall, thanks to collaboration between Grandoe, the 100+ year old leather glove resource, and Icon Shoes.

Known as “Icon for Grandoe” and “Icon for Smartdogs,” the collection of leather gloves and slippers will feature artwork from up-and-coming artists and greats such as Vincent Van Gogh, Gustav Klimt, and Michael Cheval and other embedded on premium sheepskin leather and fashioned into contemporary silhouettes.

Gloves, Slippers Become Artists’ Canvases


“We’ve been big fans of the Icon brand and their products for years and love the idea of translating the bold printed graphics they are well known for in leather shoes, handbags and small leathergoods into the stylish women’s leather gloves and slippers we are famous for,” says Eric Friedman, Grandoe’s president/ceo.
