#BAGAHOLICBOY SHOPS: Get Your Gambit On With These Designer Chess Sets


The Queen’s Gambit might not be getting a sequel yet, but chess fanatics the world over continue to rise. Unsurprisingly, some of your favourite fashion houses recently created niche chess sets in luxurious materials for playing at home.

After all, luxury living shouldn’t be limited to fancy ready-to-wear, bags, accessories and shoes. Because one can also have a bit of fun when playing a strategic game like chess in style. You’ll generally find these sets under either the lifestyle or games sections at the respective brands.

01Hermès Samarcande Mini Chess Set, SGD4350
Firstly, this compact set measuring 12 cm by 12 cm from Hermès is ideal for bringing along on your travels. The Samarcande Mini Chess Set comes in a mahogany and cassia wood box, with hand-sculpted pawns and figures engraved with Clou de Selle stainless heels. The lid doubles as a magnetic base for the game when you undo the saddle-stitched taurillon strap. HERMÈS

02Louis Vuitton Chess Game, SGD6400
Louis Vuitton is also a game-changer (no pun intended) when it comes to the art of living. The refined Chess Game exemplifies this notion to perfection, with a transparent board ‘floating’ atop the Damier-pattern leather box. Its ebony and boxwood chess pieces also depict signature motifs from the LV initials to Monogram Flowers for a cohesive look. LOUIS VUITTON

03Prada Saffiano Leather Chess Set, SGD10,500
The third set, and also the most expensive of the three, comes from Prada. Wearing a minimalist black-and-white colour palette, it matches perfectly with spirit of the checkerboard chess game. Saffiano leather encases the entire set, right down to the carrying box, while the chess pieces come in metal for luxurious play. PRADA
