The company says “if you are after warmth but not bulk, Imogen is the glove for you”.
Imogen is a glove which is dear to our hearts and a glove which will take you anywhere. It’s practical enough to be an ‘everyday’ glove – robust, warm and delightfully comfortable. But the bow that we have cunningly insinuated into the cuff adds a touch that makes this glove perfect for special occasions. It will turn any event into an occasion and it will make you feel special. If you are thinking of buying your first pair of ‘proper’ gloves, then this is the glove for you.Cornelia James

Jen from The Sustainable Edit reviewed the Cornelia James gloves. Here’s her verdict:
I really like the more ladylike style. They make you feel so elegant, but aren’t so fancy you feel uncomfortable wearing them to the shops. The gloves are wrist length with a cute little bow detail. […] They are lightweight and surprisingly warm perfect if you don’t want bulky gloves.
