Here at BR|LGC, we love finding inspiration in uncommon places, which is why we can’t get enough of this! In a recent issue, Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) dishes on all the details of the St. Louis World Chess Hall of Fame’s upcoming exhibition entitled, “A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes, Fashion and Chess.” Incorporating a love for the game of chess and the versatility of fashion, this limited-time exhibit running October 9th,2013 through April 18th, 2014 will feature garments influenced by various aspects of the game of chess from brands such as Gucci, Maison Martin Margiela, Gianfranco Ferré and Pam Hogg. Who doesn’t love a bit of boxed prints and royal hues in their wardrobe? However, it doesn’t stop there, so do not expect just checkerboard mania – these trends dig deeper and will primarily incorporate themes with the Queen as the influential leader.
We all know accessories are key in pulling off a royal look and eyewear is no exception! Judith Leiber’s Marquetry sunglasses are fit for any queen! With the royal hues, jeweled temples and intricate detailing, these frames could fit right in among the displays at this timeless exhibit!

Isaac Mizrahi helps bring out the modern day queen in all of us with plenty of glamour and charm. If you are looking to pull of the checkerboard trend, these readers from Isaac Mizrahi are ideal for you. The subtle hint of gingham print on the inside temple will leave you right on-trend, yet allow for versatile, every day wear.
It’s no secret that Queens love their jewels. Try these Ivanka Trump sunglasses, with genuine Austrian crystals on the frame temples, allowing you to exude this extravagant look.
The precious stones in the David Yurman Signature Cable Stone Collection are made for any fancy lady – try them in Lapis with Sterling Silver and Lapis Stone, a personal favorite of ours!
We are ready for this trend – game on!
